Additionally, to all the nurses' dismay she has figured out how to turn from her belly to her side, which prompted the NP to jibe, "that's impossible for your gestational age!"She has pulled out her feeding tube four or five times (once with just her tongue and lips). Her nurse said, "uh-oh, you're a bad girl Nora." To which I quickly responded, "she's not a bad girl, she just makes some bad choices." This won't bode well for me when she is two, but will come in handy when she is a teenager and needs to set some boundaries with the boys!
Ryan, on the other hand, well, he is just laid back like me.
Both babies are making good progress, eating a little more, breathing a little better, and fighting their nurses a little harder. (The nurses here are very gracious and appreciate the spunk.)
Meanwhile, a special thanks to Uncle Dan who took on a weekend watching Caitlin so we could come up here unfettered. Both child and caretaker (I'll let you figure out which one was which) came out of the experience all the better for it.
