Five Pound Baby - Happy 10 Weeks

Little Miss Abby just keeps growing. Here are her current measurements that I know:
Weight: 5 lbs. 3.2 oz
Length: 17.4 in
OFC: 12.2 in (I think that is meaning her head.)

She is on oxygen, using a feeding tube, and receiving iron supplements. She only needs to be rid of the feeding tube to come home. She could possibly be okay without oxygen, but we are trying to give her good chances of keeping her lungs from being distressed and not getting RSV. She does a great job eating, but she just gets tired.

We are getting very excited, anxious, nervous, overwhelmed - to name a few. We continue to feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful people.... Thank you! Thank you!

Someone asked me what I thought I was learning from this experience -- a list can be made: The first thing that came to my mind was patience; I have also learned what a greater miracle-than I thought before-life is; It is a miracle that we can breath and eat (and the list goes on).... Abigail is a beautiful miracle, and we are so grateful that she is a part of our little forever family.

Look how much she is filling out and starting to chunk up....

Getting a back rub from Daddy--It helps her with her gas.

Enjoying her pacifier

Modeling some of her cute outfits....
