I apologize for not updating in a few days. The time just flies away. We're now starting our third week of driving to the hospital twice, sometimes three times a day. Along with the other, daily things we have to do, it's very draining.
Anyway, Ella is doing very well. Her weight is up to 4 lbs, 7.3 oz, which is fantastic. She's still in the isolette but hopefully will be moving into an open crib in the next couple days. She's working on eating by mouth. It's touch and go. She'll take some at some feedings, and none at others. Sometimes, it'll seem like she spits most of it back out. The doctors and nurses say this is completely normal behavior for a baby her age. Still, I think we got so used to her passing each hurdle with flying colors, that the slowness in this area is a bit disheartening. So continue to pray for her, and us, if you're so inclined.
And here are some of my favorite photos taken the past couple days. The outfits are adorable!
