August 23: Mommy changed my diaper and no more ventilator; I’ve graduated to the CPAP! I’m breathing stronger and stronger. They make them very small for kids like me. A little more blue light today to help me out and I get to wear cool shades.

August 24: Today my belly IV came out and I got a PICC line instead. Now the doctors and nurses can give me a little more nutrition. Also, I finished up with the lights. Daddy shared his wedding ring with me; it goes all the way up my arm! I have a couple friends in my incubator to keep me company.

  1. You looks so very happy. Beautiful little girl. Can hardly believe your ring fit her arm. Only thing missing are Hannah’s siblings. So happy for all of you! Love you so much :-)

  2. Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful pictures. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. I know what it is like to go home without your baby and still maintain a bit of normal for your other children, take good care of yourselves.
    We love you all !!!!!!!
