Look at me! I am starting to hold my pacifier in my mouth all by myself! I am doing more big girl things everyday!
The posts are going to be pretty boring now (which maybe is a good thing- Faith has been a little too exciting lately) because we are just waiting. Waiting for nursing, waiting for Faith to ween a little on her vent settings, just waiting. Meanwhile waiting is not so bad because Faith seems to be taking off developmentally. We've noticed a big change in her this week. She is looking at things (YES, IT's TRUE!!!) Making occasional eye contact (EVEN BETTER!) and reacting positively to her environment (toys, sounds, play etc.) She has even started bringing her hands to her face! We still can't pick up a child development book because it makes us sick (we bought lots of them when during the pregnancy) , but Faith is proving that she is developing on her timeline which makes every little eye contact, every little reaction a priceless gift.
Well, tomorrow marks Faith's 200th day in the hospital. Never did we think when we were celebrating her 100th day we'd still be here (although it is a different "here") but nevertheless by the Grace of God we keep cruising along!
Thanks so much for your prayers, and support (and yes, please send out prayers for those nurses!)
