We are learning so much about how to care for our little Nessa.
The nurses spend a lot of time showing what to do. One thing
they've said is good for her is holding her skin to skin. They
call it Kangaroo care. We love feeling her little body against
She likes to cuddle up really tight and bury her face in our chest.
Then she'll wrap her
around me and spread out her fingers. I love feeling her tickle me.
Caleb is so in love with her. Last night I realized I'm not the only girl in his life anymore. He stayed at the hospital for hours holding her. When he finally decided to put her back she woke up and he told me he couldn't leave her once she was awake. The nurses told me you rarely see a dad so involved in caring for their babies. It's incredible to watch him love her.
She is doing really well. She's gained another ounce and is bottle feeding some of her meals. They also told us they'll probably take her IV out in the next couple days. We're so thankful for these improvements and pray she continues to do well.
