August 30: I hit 3 pounds today! Unfortunately, I didn’t keep breathing as good as the doctors told me to, so they put the CPAP back on. :( I really don’t like it and keep trying to pull it off. But, they tell me it’s for the best.

August 31: My feeding keeps being increased. Today I am at 17mL every 3 hours. I have been very good at eating! Today I had great fun with Nurse Dan. He thought I hadn’t pooped enough and decided to help me with that. I don’t like that kind of stuff, so I showed him who’s boss! He said he’s never seen anyone poop like that before; it went all the way up his arm and out the incubator. I was trying to make a good impression. :)

September 1: My PICC line was removed today. The doctors say that I’m eating good and can get all the nutrients I need from my food now. My feedings are up to 20mL! I have been a very good girl and Mommy and Daddy are very proud.
