6 days old






Good news!!! Sophia is 4lb 13 oz today!! She gained two ounces over night. I knew this exhaustion I was feeling from waking up every two hours around the clock to force her to eat was worth it. She is so mellow and quiet, she has yet to wake up for a feeding. I have to wake her and force her to eat. Her bilirubin is the same level as yesterday which is good too. Since tomorrow she will be a week old, and she has gained more weight, her bili level would have to be several points higher in order to need treatment. We will get rechecked on wednesday, but for now we just get to enjoy this beautiful miracle that God has given us. I find myself getting so emotional today as I look at these two beautiful children that God has blessed us with. I can't even begin to put into words the joy and thankfulness that I feel.
