Morgan Kate had another really good day! She did not gain any ounces last night, but she did gain grams - which is still a good thing. They have not weighed her yet tonight because she was sleeping so soundly (she was absolutely adorable) and they did not want to wake her up. She had a few heart rate drops today, but was able to self correct almost all of them. Her feeding schedule has changed somewhat. She is typically on a continuous feed for six hours and then off for two. Today she took a step up in the feeding department - she is now being fed for two hours and then off for one. This is a step in the right direction which will eventually lead to bottle feeds one day. I can hardly wait for that day! I will be so excited to feed her!!

Each day Morgan Kate changes and grows so much. She is so perfect, just really, really tiny. It's amazing to see her and think (or know) that she is a combination of Travis and I. I look at her and think about how awesome it will be to get her home and just do simple things with her - push her in a stroller, have her sleep in her own house, give her baths, take her for rides, love on her and snuggle her. I don't think she really needs a crib or anything else because Travis and I just plan to hold her all the time. I did get to kangaroo with her for almost two hours today and it was SO nice. She did a really good job and I can't wait for our next "roo" session.  

Her eye exam is definitely scheduled for next week. We are thankful for this and pray that everything turns out okay.

You both are so strong.
I think of you often. Keep praying and love her all that you can. It is good to hear that things are going well for you all.
Thanks for keeping us informed--I can't wait to read what happens each day.
