|A rare moment out of the water|
|This is a picture of Coeur d'Lane at her Pediatrician visit yesterday. She weighed in at 4 pounds 12 ounces and the Ped is very pleased with her growth.|
|Coeur d'Lane praying for Lennon to come home soon! Lennon is up to 4 pounds 3 ounces. Yesterday she drank 5 out of 8 bottles for the day!!! The Neonatalogist thinks she'll be home within a week. Keep praying, CDL!|
|Coeur d'Lane fell asleep while texting Gigi :-)|
|Lennon looking happy with the news that she should get to come home within the week.|
|Coeur d'Lane is adjusting well. She goes back to the pediatrician on Thursday for a weight check. She should be close to birth weight by then. We keep reminding her that Lennon will be home soon.|
|The speech therapist has suggested that Lennon start being offered the bottle at each feeding. Once she can take all the milk from the bottle at each feeding, they will likely release her within 24-48 hours. Of course, that might take a few days to get to that point.|
|In the midst of the excitement and joy of the gift of two precious baby girls, Chris & Brooke brought Emerson's ashes home today. Packaged in this beautful heart-shaped urn, a reminder that she will always be close to our hearts.|

Another busy day. Pediatrician appointment at 10AM, Lactation Consultant appointment at 1:30, visit Lennon in between. Stop at Baby's R Us to get clothes to fit Coeur d'Lane and home. Got home at 5:00! Virtual birthday party for Jeff at 7:00.
Got some good news about both girls. Coeur d'Lane does not have to get blood work for jaundice drawn again. The results from last night's blood draw were low enough to discontinue monitoring. Lennon gained 2 more ounces and now weighs 3 pounds 9 ounces. She continues to improve. She saw a speech therapist today who was able to get her to take 10 cc's of milk at one time! Big accomplishment! She needs to be able to take all 30 - 40 cc's by mouth before she can come home. Prayers appreciated!
Here are some pics from today's outing. Enjoy.
|Coeur d'Lane at her first pediatrician visit. Getting the weigh in. 4 pounds 5 ounces!|
|Dr. Larsen. He is very nice and very supportive of breast feeding.|
|Waiting to see the Lacation Consultant, Melissa. She is obviously supportive of breast feeding and gave Brooke some great suggestions and helpful hints. She was so encouraging.|
|Coeur d'Lane's adorable foot. Who doesn't like baby feet???|
Today is my youngest son's 19th birthday. Sadly, I wasn't able to be there in person for his birthday party but thanks to technology - me, Chris, Brooke, Coeur d'Lane, Kristy and Adrienne were able to be there via Google+.
Tomorrow should be less hectic. "should be"
