What A Little Firecracker!

Bella is 6 pounds and 5 ounces! They took off her wrestling gear and put her back on the nasal cannula today. Pray for big deep breaths and good Co2 readings! Oh in case you were wondering, that's her dibble dobble attached to a burp pad so she can hold it. She's getting to be quite the little Miss Independence...so apropos since her actual due date was this Saturday, July 4th!Just a reminder that I'm still out here y'all and I'll be back!

Before you know it, that sweet baby will be home, crawling around your feet and tripping you! I will pray for deep breaths and continued improvement! You know, little Miss Bella and Lurch could take naps together...they both have to wear very interesting sleep breathing gear! Maybe I should get Lurch a dibble dobble too! :)
