10 Weeks Old

Olivia was 10 weeks old yesterday. To celebrate she got to breast feed for a little while (sorry if that's tmi, but this is her baby book and I'd like to remember). She did great and now we are on a two week exclusive to get her used to breast feeding before we introduce a bottle. She was moved down to 2L on the nasal cannula and has been doing great! Last night she weighed 3 pounds 13.4 ounces - almost three times her birthweight! A few of her preemie outfits are still too big, but the micro preemie ones are way too small. I think by the end of next week the preemie outfits will probably fit perfectly. She's eating one ounce of milk every 3 hours through her feeding tube. Whatever she gets from me is just a bonus right now while we work on developing the "suck, swallow, breath" reflexes. We are so thankful she is doing so well! Last week her doctor, with a smile on his face said, "Now we just wait for her to keep growing." It will be the end of July before we know it and she'll be coming home!

She is absolutely beautiful. So happy to hear she is doing so well. I check your blog every day or two to watch her progress. I am still keeping you all in my thoughts.

I love the one of her smiling... and the one of her flipping the camera off :) So glad she did well breast feeding. I can't wait to see her in pictures in our nursery-- it will be here before you know it!
