Some tummy time
No clue what she is doing…maybe picking her nose?
She loves her swing!
In her bouncy seat
Showing off her beautiful smile
Being a sweetheart
Aunt Starlena holding her for the 1st time
George bought this onesie when we found out I was pregnant…before we knew she was a girl.
Relaxing in the tub…she’s so funny!
Look at that Buddha belly! She’s going to weight watchers with mommy!
And an old pic from the NICU for memories…this is her “old man” look. She was soooo tiny!
Thanks for looking!
We’ve had a busy week so far but now it has calmed down. George’s mom and her friend Marilyn came down on Monday to help take Emma to the dr and they just left this morning. I love it when they come down b/c George’s mom, Judy, washes my dishes/bottles, makes coffee, holds Emma, and washes clothes. Such a big help!
Anyways, on Monday we went to the pulmonologist. They talked about weaning her down on the oxygen from 250 to 125 but then decided against it b/c we are stopping her two diuretics. They didn’t want to overload her. He did say that she will probably be off oxygen in 1-2 months so we now have a better time frame. So far she’s doing good off the medicine but he said to watch for puffiness in her face/hands. We got to weigh her while we were there and with her clothes on she weighs 8 lbs 2.4 oz! She is huge! I totally couldn’t believe she was that big but she has started eating more. Way to go Emma!
Yesterday we went back to Dr. Byrne, the retina specialist. Her eyes are still getting better but the blood vessels still haven’t finished forming. Soooo now we go back in 3 months! That’s a whole lot better than every 2 weeks! My little girl is growing up.
That’s about all I’ve got for this week…Emma has been smiling up a storm and occasionally coos but not all the time. She loves for her mommy to kiss her and tickle her! It just makes my day when she smiles at me and I couldn’t be happier. Oh one other thing…at the dr office yesterday I swear she chuckled a few times! I’m sure she didn’t mean to but it was so cute I wanted to cry! Now for pics…here are a couple of smiles and of her and Marilyn.
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
