Random photo, I know. But on of our neighbors, Colleen, bought and wrapped this beautiful present for us. Her husband walked it over (picture any man walking across the street with a big, beautiful, pink package and you get the idea). We were leaving the house at the time, and all Kit saw in the rear view mirror was something big and pink. Anyway, I though the wrapping was beautiful so I snapped this right before opening it. Thanks, Colleen!
The many signs outside the NICU. I forgot to take pictures from when Elise was in the West NICU but figured we just might want to have a small memory of this place she's called home for so many weeks.
The sink where we wash our hands every day. Bottles are stored above the sink so that's where we get our stock for storing and bringing in milk to Elise.
She decided to start farting when I handed her to Kit. And because they fortify her milk with formula, her gas and poop both stink really badly.
We came in last night to find her with her hat halfway down her face, her pacifier under her chin, her nasal aspirator almost on top of her head, and a Post-It and two sterile wipes on her tummy. She's a big multi-tasker.
Yesterday while sorting all of her laundry to be washed I realized that we hadn't brought this outfit to the hospital, and it says "0-5 Pounds" in the tag. Well, the length was about right, but I'm not sure what 0-5 pound baby is ever going to be that chubby. It's an absolutely adorable outfit (see next photo for matching sleeper) though. Thanks, Kim and Christi!
