Abby's bed when she is being left alone.
A kiss good-bye from daddy (I missed the first one, but made sure to capture this one....)
It was a great day at the NICU for Abby and I. We got to start Kangaroo Care. It is not your traditional "holding", but I got to have my little princess laying on me. At one point she kept trying to turn her head, but that was not really possible since she is connected to the ventilator. She periodically set off one of her machines with her movements.... I really like today's nurse and all of the questions she could answer -- and the depth of the answers. These NICU nurses are so wonderful.
We are starting to notice little things she does. She makes some cute expressions. It is really cute when she wrinkles up her forehead. It also seems like she likes to dangle her right leg over the little pillow that keeps her contained when sleeping -- I will have to take a picture.
Oh -- It was so fun. She would open her eyes every now and then, and I would just sit and talk to her. I can usually talk to her now without tearing up. However, I decided to try singing to her, but could barely make it through singing "I Am a Child of God" to her.... It was also good that John was able to be there by the end to see us together. It is so cute watching him be a daddy. It is very cute when he talks to her....
I am excited to do it all again tomorrow....
