The Tower & Nursery (aka Happy Six Week Birthday, Elise)

She made it!!! She's officially in The Tower as of a little before 2pm today - a great gift on her six-week birthday. Kit stayed home this afternoon to work on the nursery and called me while I was driving to the hospital to tell me the doctor had just called to say they were moving her. I definitely got teary for the rest of the drive. We are so very excited at her amazing progress. I'll post photos of her area in The Tower soon. Tonight she took another full bottle, and she's been taking partial bottles at other feedings so we're definitely getting close to take home time.

The nursery is turning out beautifully, and I will post photos once it gets closer to being done. Since mention of the nursery also brings up the topic of our house, I'd like to share some good news. The Lord has provided the means for us to keep the house. We are very blessed and thankful for His provision. Now our little girl has a home (and a cute pink room) to come home to that she won't have to move out of any time soon.

Dear Elise,

Congratulations and Happy 6th week! We all miss seeing you at the NICU, but we are following your progress and are so happy you have made the Big Move to the Towers- what great news! You are certainly a feisty girl and an inspiration to us all. We are looking forward to infant massage class with your parents this week. (I think you're going to like it too!)

Love,
Paul, Susan, and Anthony Carson
