2 Weeks Old

Today was yet another wonderful day at CHOC with precious Piper and Phoebe.  Both girls took three feedings in a row from their bottle.  This has never ever happened before!!!  Most of the time the girls will take half or a little over half of their feedings from their bottle and then need to have their feeding finished off in their tubes.  I attribute this ENORMOUS growth to the amazing nurse today.  She has been a NICU nurse for over 30 years and it showed.  The nurse was not only great with the girls but she was a wonderful teacher, giving me lots and lots of baby great tips.

In addition to feeding growth Piper celebrated another milestone today...she is in a big girl crib!!!  This move means that Piper is able to maintain her own body temperature.  Maintaining body temperature is one of the criteria that Piper and Phoebe have to reach in order to come home.  Phoebe is still a bit smaller & needs to stay in her isolate just a little bit longer.

          Piper loves her new crib          Piper the super hero      

Big mommy was my follow up appointment with my doctor and he said that I am healing great from my C Section and that I can drive now!!!  I never thought I would be so excited to be told I could drive again.  I have really missed being able to take myself places.
