Videos and Updates

Here are two of the three videos one of the other dads shot for us. I went with his group to shoot for him later in the day. There is one more I will be adding.

A general update. We received her care instructions/routine last night about 9pm and found we had starved her all day! She's taking 6 200ml bottles a day! We finally received some formula we knew she would eat at 7pm and fes her well. Throughout the day we had given her diluted apple and fruit juices and Graduates puffs. She loves the puffs. All her plumbing appears to work just fine. We laid her down at 9pm. She awoke at 12:30 and had another bottle. She awoke at 3:30 and went back to sleep on her own without taking her from the crib, and at 4:30 she woke me and I held her for about 10 minutes before she went back down in the crib.

She is happy and trying to talk and crawl. She is making a sound somewhat similar to "da," so I am happy! Today we have more legal paperwork to do and fees to pay. Wednesday or Thursday we will go to Swallows Nest and meet Pam, the angel that cared for our baby so much of her first year. Pam actually called us in the hotel last night to check on LynnMarie and the other baby adopted from Swallows Nest yesterday.

Today is my "forever family" day anniversary. One year ago today and so seeing your gotcha video just made my day. I can't believe how close our special days are. March will always be such a special time for you both. She is just precious and I can't wait to watch her grow!

That's great news to hear how great LM is doing. How wonderful that you get to meet Pam. Also, don't feel too bad about the food stuff. We were told Sofia only ate formula and since she had a cleft we were scared to give her more than that. She was starving and would not sleep at night, so by the third day we figured out she was starving. Things got much better after that. Lovely videos.

Hugs,
Jonni
