Aubrey has been in the NICU for 57 days, her whole little life. I wanted to share some pictures and record some things about life in the NICU.
Meeting Dad for the first time:
Meeting Mom for the first time:
This is what her very first diapers looked like:
|Diaper beside a quarter. Go ahead. Pull out a quarter and see how small that diaper really is.|
This is the first time I got to hold her:
Her first time accessorizing:
Aubrey's set up in the NICU:
|This screen shows her heart rate, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation.|
|Changing her diaper.|
|We bring in blankets from home to cover and decorate her isolette.|
Aubrey letting us know what she thinks of getting her picture taken:
Just kidding - that's her fourth finger, not her middle! She does smile sometimes. I don't really care if it's not on purpose! She's getting much cuter:
She is working really hard on learning how to coordinate sucking, swallowing and breathing so she can eat from a bottle and come home to us. This is a picture of her practicing while her meal is pumped into her stomach via a tube through her nose down to her stomach:
She's getting big and working on all the things she needs to learn. We love you, baby girl!
