There has been lots going on.... There are lots of pictures and some updates.
Abby is weighing about 2lbs 11oz and has grown about an inch since birth. She loves to suck on her pacifier. She may have gotten another infection this week, but they have her on more antibiotics. This is pretty normal for babies her size. The poor thing ended up with an IV in her head because they could not get it in her arms or legs. (Monday was a rough day for Abby - partially due to all the poking.).... They tell me that she continues to do well for her age.
Today I got to hold her for nearly four hours. It is so much easier to hold her in my arms now that she has the CPAP. However, it stops us from the Kangaroo Care (Skin to Skin)....
It is hard to believe that she is already a month old.
This guy either was or is a nurse and has been volunteering as Santa for years. She got to be free from the CPAP for a couple of minutes.

We put up some Christmas decorations in Abby's room
Doesn't this look like a proud and happy Daddy?
She has done some fun poses wearing this CPAP. Sometimes she has her hands up by her ears, and it looks like she is listening to music. She will even kick her feet out - and even up in the air occasionally. She gives us some good laughs at her cuteness.
Measuring up to the bear at four weeks on Sunday.
Sleeping on the new blanket Grandma Jones made. She has like eight blankets/sheets made just for her.
My little papoose (if that's how you spell it).
