Every Tuesday while you're in the hospital, we'll take a picture with your pug so that everyone can see how much you are growing!
You are now about 12 inches long and 1lb 6oz.
Your fourth week was a great week for you. You have been feeding on milk all week, and you seem to love it...you even made it back to your birth weight for the first time. You've also been moved from the ventilator to a CPAP machine, which means that you're doing more of your own breathing. You even spent a few hours on a nasal cannula, which is an incredible feat for a little lady your age and size.
This week, your daddy was able to hold you for the very first time. He actually held you twice, and the second time he heard you soft, tiny voice for the first time. He also got to change your diaper for the first time.
Your mommy is hoping to come see you in the next few days. I tell her all about you and show her pictures of you every day.
In the next week, we're praying that you'll continue to do well on the CPAP. You should begin to eat more milk more often and start growing even more. We'll also celebrate your one month birthday this Friday! And, we're praying that your mommy will be given a new set of lungs so that we can all go home together soon!
We love you!
