So today was the first day we got to dress Brielle!!!! And I think mommy was way more excited than Brielle was! hehe. I've been waiting for this day for along time!! (4 weeks and 6 days to be exact) She did very well with it, and I think she liked the feeling of being contained, since the nurses focus on that, instead of her hands flying all over. Like Sherry said, she is supposed to be tight inside me yet and sometimes they dont know what to do, so maybe the clothes will help. The Preemie clothes are of course still big on her! But really just wide, the length is pretty good on her!! O and Mommy got pooped on for the first time today!! And todays the first day me and daddy both will get to hold her!! Lots of firsts!! Still along ways to go til she comes home and more firsts to come, but we are excited she gets to put on clothes!!!! I posted her first pic to the right!!

O, I'm sure you all want the update...Almost forgot, I was too excited!!! She is 2lbs 4 oz today. She is doing awesome on her Os. She was at 33% when we got there this morning. All her IVs are out!!!!! No more antibiotics. She is getting her caffeine orally now, thru her feeding tube. She is up to 19ML of food!! She is out growing her breathing tube, coughing around it, so they were talking about putting in a bigger tube. All and all a very good rainy day!!!!
