3 days old

The woman with Peter is our adoption social worker. She is a sweetheart!

Some highlights of the day:

O weighs 4 lbs 4 oz. and she can take 5 cc of formula from a bottle. The IV is still in though to give her enough nutrition.  She sucks the 5 cc down in no time flat!  She is sucking well on her pacifier when it is time to do a medical procedure. She is such a brave little girl. The nurses were struggling with doing a new IV "poke" but O just fell asleep. I think that Daddy's warm hand on her belly helped!  She loves her Daddy!

O is sleeping a lot so we spend a lot of time just standing by her incubator watching her sleep.  We have "action" movies of her sleeping!  :-)

Yes, she does look a bit jaundiced today. Her numbers were higher, but no grow light yet.

We are now licensed for Foster Care. This helps an adoption go more smoothly in Berrien County, as it gets the judge involved sooner in the whole process. He is very good at protecting the rights of birthmom.

Thanks to everyone for the prayers and support! We appreciate you all so much!!!  Your support means so much!  

That is the latest on our beloved little chickadee.  (she has bird legs :-)   )
