Well, Lily was 4 months old yesterday. I can’t be as good as Michelle and actually get it on the correct day. It has been a very interesting 4 months. Lily spent the first 6 weeks in the hospital. She was born at 29 weeks. If you look at her head, you can see a circle on it. Yup, she didn’t want to come out, they had to vacuum my 3lb 1oz baby out. Did I mention that I had a c-section?
She cried upon coming out which made me soooo happy, and about 9 hours after birth they had to put a ventilator in her to help mature her lungs. I don’t have pictures of this and I’m very grateful for that. She dropped down to 2lbs 8oz and was then placed on C-PAP and was on that for about 3 days. By the way, her diapers were about 1.5 inches wide by 2.5 inches long. Very small.
She then went onto nasal cannulas.
After that, she was on room air! Only 10 days after birth, and except for feeding, she was ready to come home at 31 weeks. Truly, our miracle child.
Here she is at one month. In a preemie outfit that is way too huge on her.
Here she is in her car seat getting ready to come home. Actually, this is her car seat test, she came home a couple of days later. She isn’t even 5 pounds yet.
This is the morning we got to go home. As you can see, she is tired of me taking her pictures. If I was titling these, this one would be, "Please, no more pictures!"
Then on September 7th, she was blessed. Here is a picture of my family.
And I love this one.
Here she is, being held by her daddy who gave her a name and a blessing and all the men who stood in the circle to help assist her daddy.
Here are a couple in between because of course, I don’t have any "2 month" or "3 month" pictures of her. That would be too easy!
But!! I do have her on her 4th month! and here it is…
Whoops, that’s not Lily! That’s Kjelly!
Here is Lily
Four months yesterday and growing like a weed. This is when she first came home.
This was taken a week ago.
I’m sleep deprived and my speech slurs when I talk, but I’m happy that she’s healthy and doing so well. If she would only sleep through the night! I would even be happy for 6 hours straight. Nope, she may look like her daddy, but attitude and sleep or should I say, lack thereof, is purely Moore!
Question of the day: When did your kids start sleeping through the night?
