NICU Day 12 September 26, 2010

Filed under: Lila,Milestones,Sunny days — Aimee @ 10:28 pm

Another good day for Lila and an even better day for her mommy! We arrived to the hospital this morning and learned that the ventilator was turned down twice overnight, so she’s now at 19. Just 24 hours earlier, it was set at 26. To top off Lila’s superb weekend, I got to hold my baby for the first time. Twelve days after her birth day, I experienced the best 30 minutes of my life. With all of her cords and tubes, it was quite the process for the nurses to get her into my arms. Daddy will get to hold her next time, but he definitely took advantage of being close to her and showered her forehead with kisses. We also posed for our first family picture. Is this surreal or what!? She’s not even supposed to be here until Nov. 15 and here we are, a family of three.
