NICU Day 8 September 22, 2010

Filed under: Lila,Photo/video updates — Aimee @ 6:42 pm

Last night, Daddy got to help with Lila’s cares for the first time. Cares are done every three hours. Lila gets fed, changed, etc. In this video, Daddy’s giving her a Q-tip soaked in breast milk. She loves it! This will help get her ready for breastfeeding. And she tries really hard to open her eyes, but doesn’t quite get there.

And here he is changing Lila’s diaper for the first time. Not too shabby!

    Great videos. Zada and I sat and watched them together. Lila looks great, and it was fun watching her trying to open her eyes, and seeing her reactions to your voices. She is one beautiful little girl. Love yas.

    And what a natural you are on the diaper changing, Daddy!!!! It is very heart-warming to see how comfortable and capable you are with that little peanut. How lucky is she??? You make me proud :o)

    The way her little eyes fluttered when she heard your voice in the first video brought tears to my eyes. She knows that you’re her mom, wow, how incredible.
