Big Yawn (7 weeks)
































Olivia is seven weeks old today! It's so hard to believe and time is finally flying by. I'd like it to continue to fly by and then come to a standstill as soon as we are home from the NICU. :) As of last night she weighs 2lb 5oz, so she's up a pound from her birthweight. The nurses and dietician told us she is gaining perfectly and is still doing great with her feedings. They also removed the central line (or broviac) from her chest this week. We know she has to be happy to be getting rid of all the annoying wires... Or maybe it's just that mom and dad are very happy for her!

Olivia,

Each day you make significant steps toward being ready to come home makes us so excited. We can't wait to walk out of the hospital with YOU in our arms. What an amazing day that will be - to really start our life as a family! We feel so blessed we were chosen to be your parents and can't wait until the day you fully understand what an incredible miracle you are! We love you fiercely, Olivia Bain.

Love,
Mommy and Daddy
