Outfit of the Day

Today’s outfit is a green onesie with a cupcake on the front. You can’t see the cupcake in this photo as it’s hidden by the blanket so you will just have to trust me.

She’s getting bigger and bigger at over 6.5 lbs she’s getting to be a good size for being just 37 weeks. She was a little fussy today and was breathing a little fast which was worrisome but all tests came back fine. It seems fast breathing is normal for a baby this age.

Today’s outfit is a onesie (once again) with little dogs on it. Today was pretty much the first time she had her eyes open for me so that’s a first.

It looked like she was eating for me as there was a lot of action with the nipple, but it turned out to be all show and no go. Once she can start to eat and grow a bit more I can take her home and I can’t wait.

Outfit of the Day

Today’s outfit is a long-sleeved onesie that was long and folded over her toes. It’s probably not considered a onesie but I don’t know the name so that’s what I will call it.

She fine, getting bigger and bigger. Pretty Soon, she will be home.

Outfit of the Day

It’s valentines day so of course there’s going to be a lot of pink and red and at the NICU today they did not disappoint! When I got there they had her all dressed up in this little onesie with pink LOVE written all over. And of course, there’s the hat. She wiggles around so it’s usually just off her head and today was the same.. the hat seems like a good idea.

She is keeping her temperature and is eating and weighing more so that’s all good news. She made us a valentine’s card (with some help from the nurses I am sure) . She also got mail today. In fact, there’s more mail for her than me.

She didn’t eat for me today from the bottle but she did for the nurses. It’s hard work figuring out to eat and breathe and suck all at the same time but she’s still just days old. When she is ready she will let me know.

longer hair every day

Unlike the usual hospital grade receiving blankets that she is usually in when I arrive at the hospital to see her today she was in some fancy green wrapper by Halo, that reminds you that ‘back is best’ so when you put your baby down that he/she is on their back.

She grew a bit more today, but not much – about an ounce. She’s eating more overall but still has a hard time with bottle feeding still. She took 20ml for the nurse earlier today, but for me she only downed 2ml, and most of that was probably spillage.

Outfit of the Day

Today’s outfit was all wrapped up so I didn’t get to see what she was sporting today.

But she did gain weight and is up to 6lbs 3oz. She had no interest in the bottle today as she was tired. They did a hearing test which she passed and she also had physical therapy too. Heck I would be tired with all that.

This is the time my little beauty needs her sleep so she can grow her brain and become smarter than me.

She was dressed today wrapped up and swaddled in the standard hospital receiving blankets that seem to be ubiquitous here.

That Hat

Today’s outfit is a little mint green number with embroidered flowers on the front. She looks great in this color. I’m not so sure about the hat and whether it compliments but it seems to have become “the hat” for her NICU stay so we will just go with the flow.

She’s made it 6lbs 0.3oz for weight and she is still holding her temperature for the 2nd day in a row. If she could just figure out he bottle feeding we could bring her home, but we will wait until she is ready.

She is also sporting a new mattress cover with hedgehogs and a Peanuts blanket with Snoopy and hearts too. It’s been a very fashionable day today.

Jolly Jumper Sneak a Peek

All these cutesy named products I didn’t know existed until she came along and now they are arriving fast and furious. One of the latest to arrive at our doorstep is a cover for the baby seat.

I bought this vs other car seat covers because it was priced just over $20.00 compared to the other colors that at the time were priced at almost twice as much so it was a no-brainer.

Apparently these are great when carrying the baby around in the car seat in the winter as the baby is still easy to get to, but it keeps the child warm and is much easier to manage than a plain blanket thrown over the car seat which can slip and be a trip hazard.

The model I bought is fleece lined and seems to be well designed. I haven’t tried it out yet because SP is still in the NICU but I hope by the end of the month I can bring her home where she belongs.

Today’s Outfit

Today’s outfit is a little white number with little red leaves. I guess it would help if you could actually be see what I am talking about the but you will have to believe me.

She’s still growing and moved from the incubator to the crib which means she is maintaining her own body temperature.

She is very sleepy with all the hard work she is doing of keeping warm.

Update: Here’s a better photo that shows the outfit of the day.
