Tonight was just amazing!!! Just look at this picture and tell me this isn't the sweetest thing you have ever seen? Oh my goodness, I about lost it when the Nurse pulled back the blanket to show how comfortable my sweet Kayleigh was pressed up against Aimee. They call this the Kangaroo care, where they allowed Aimee to hold Kayleigh against her warm chest for about 20 minutes with a warm blanket covering both of them. Kayleigh whined a couple whimpers, but was fast asleep before you knew it. I didn't think they would let us do this care so soon especially when Kayleigh is only a week old. Wow, can you believe that?? A week old already. Well, I heard before you know they will be dating, driving and off to college, so I should enjoy ever minutes of this while it lasts.
Aimee is recovering slowly, but surely. She is still in pain from the surgery and seems to wear out much quicker. From other c-sections we've heard about, it sounds like she is recovering well above schedule. I definately have to give her so much credit because she has been so strong through everything that is going on. If you cut my tummy open, I would be crying like a baby for months and I am suppose to be the tough one. She is my hero and Kayleigh will soon learn how blessed she is to have such a wonderful Mom.
Kayleigh is doing great still and the Nurse said she had a bigger poop last night, which is awesome! It was cute tonight, I changed her diaper and she was in the middle of pooping. I don't mean to be nasty by any means, but her butthole was the size of this period (.) and her poop is the funniest looking turd I have ever seen. I guess I should enjoy that while it's small too. (ha! ha!) Her stomach looked so much better tonight, so the air is coming out thank goodness. She weighed in a 1 pound again, but anything is better than losing. They put her back on the biliribbon lights yesterday, but they then took one of the lights back off tonight to slowly wein her off.
All in all, her progress seems to be going wonderful. We need to keep it this way! Thank you all so much for all the kinds words that you are posting. I love to see comments and I am sure Kayleigh will be blessed to see all the people that were pulling for her WHEN she gets older.
