One Week and Counting...

Today marked Elynor's 1-week birthday. It's so hard to believe that just one week ago she was in the NICU being bottle-fed and having her blood sugar checked regularly, while I recovered upstairs, praying for her quick and full stabilization. In this short week, God has been so good... we give thanks for Elynor's quick release from the NICU, her shift from bottle feeding to breastfeeding, the blessed time with our families, she is eating, pooping/peeing (a TON), and sleeping, my mom is making sure we eat, and my mom & ryan are helping with diapering/consoling the screaming baby.

Here are a few firsts we've marked in the past few days:
1. First projectile poop (Oh dear, yells Ryan from Elynor's room. Sarah, bring a towel quick!)
2. First outing in the stroller and dinner out (We have to savor these remaining days of outdoor dining.)
3. First sponge bath (Thank you for the warm, soft towel, Aunt Corinne. See photos, below.)

Well done, guys! Taking her out for her first meal already! And good for you, mama, for letting dad get that first projectile poop...

Thanks for the photos. She's a doll... And Brooks says hi to his new girlfriend! :)

I tried to warn Ryan about that. It won't be her last! :)
