Last night was AMAZING! As the nurse was changing out the blankets and sheets in her incubator, she took off the "sunglasses" Anna Claire has to wear in order to be under the lights for the jaundice. As soon as she took off the velcro glasses, she opened up her eyes and we immediately started talking to her. She followed the sound of our voices and we were able to look our daughter in the eyes for the first time she was born! Oh, how beautiful she is!
Later in the evening, we were able to weigh her, give her a bath and then hold her. Karen, her nurse, was so sweet and encouraging to us as parents. Mike took this picture when I was holding her. We tell her how much we love her and all of the things we can't wait to do with her. She also got a stern warning last night that we expected her to have a "big poopie" so that she start to feel better! :)
I just got off the phone with her nurse to get the overnight report...no spells! Praise the Lord! We just need to work on that poopie!
