Little Feet

Here are Elise's footprints from the night she was born. Kit's grandma measured the prints this afternoon, and I believe she said they are 2.25 inches. Her little fingers and toes are very long, which I just read today is very common in premature babies because they haven't developed very much fat on their bodies, which makes their fingers and toes look very long.


FYI, I'm blogging a lot now because I'm in my hospital room without a whole lot else to do. Once I get home and we start coming to the hospital to visit her, you'll probably notice a slight drop in postings - or at least that I post a bunch at once rather than a bunch of smaller posts throughout the day.

My daughter was born at 28wks (2.14lbs), she is a healthy 3 year old today.

We are praying for your strength & faith. The NICU is like a roller coaster ride, just be ready to hold on. She is so precious & just a tiny little miracle.

I just read your blog for the first time and as a mom of a preemie I know the stress and heart ache your going through right now.

My daughter was born at 32 weeks in 2005. She was 4lbs and 17".

I hope they are able to get her PIC line placed. They will be able to do a lot through that instead of having to poke her a bunch. IV lines don't last long because their little veins are so small.

If you have any questions feel free to email me, I know how nice it is to talk to someone who has been there.
