We had a really good day today. Emma was able to get her ventilator tube removed and was able to start receiving milk through a very small feeding tube through her nose. Both sets of grandparents came to visit her as well as uncle Levi and uncle Steve. They all agree that she's a keeper. :) She started using a binky and had her eyes open quite a bit. It was fun to hear her squeaks and sneezes now that her ventilator is out. I was able to brush her hair, too, which put her right to sleep. It sounds like we may get to hold her on Monday if the Spina Bifida specialist gives us the OK. We can't wait! After finally seeing her face a little clearer we were able to decide on a middle name of Kaysia... like Asia with a "K."
Striking a pose. We love to be able see those cute lips!
