Aside from Annaleigh’s increased calories, the only other change today was for Charlie. He finally moved from the BiPap to the CPAP this afternoon! So far he’s been doing pretty well on the CPAP, essentially behaving the same way as he was on the BiPap. We’ll take it! Go Charlie! Annaleigh is still doing very well on the nasal canula, and Lily continues to show improvement on the CPAP, although he got a little too comfy in Daddy’s arms this evening and had a brady episode, which means her heart rate dropped. Mommy had a bit of a freak out over this, but Miss Lily was just fine and within minutes of the episode she was happily snoozing in her isolette while enjoying her evening snack. Like her mommy, nothing can keep her from wanting to eat!
During my morning visit the nurses and I had some fun putting on a little baby fashion show with Annaleigh as our model. Someone had donated a bunch of preemie outfits to the hospital and Annaleigh’s nurse Cathy went through the items and chose some really cute things for the girls and Charlie. She dressed Annaleigh in a little pink and white sleeper to wear while I held her and she looked just adorable! Cathy held Annaleigh up in her new clothes while another nurse and I snapped pictures and even more nurses came over to admire her. Annaleigh is a budding supermodel!
Charlie has been enjoying his pacifier lately. The problem is that he can't hold it himself so he can only have it when he's on his stomach so it doesn't fall out.
Annaleigh happily slept through her fashion show.
