No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived, what God has prepared for those who love Him. - 1 Corinthians 2:9
I cannot wait to see what God has prepared for our little girl!

Happy 4 week Birthday, Morgan Kate!

I can't believe our little girl is already a month old. 

Are you ready for this? Not only is Morgan Kate a month old, but she is also 2 pounds and seven ounces. I know - we could hardly believe it either. And.......she was able to gain those two ounces while I kangarooed with her yesterday and Travis did today. Travis has held her twice, but never kangarooed. Today he decided that he was ready to "roo" and he did for a little over an hour. I know he enjoyed it because he smiled the entire time and Morgan Kate did an awesome job as well.

Morgan Kate has had a really good weekend. Not only has she gained three ounces, but she has been able to keep her oxygen around 30%. Room air is 21% - that's what we all breathe -and she is not far from that. Tomorrow morning they will take some blood and check her blood level again. We are praying that the iron has worked and that she will not need a blood transfusion. However, if she does need a transfusion we are prepared for that as well. We should know more this week about when her eye exam will take place. She will be 30 days old on Tuesday and they typically do the first exam around that time. 

By the way, I had pictures of Travis and Morgan Kate "rooing", but I left the memory card reader at the hospital. Hey, Mommy can't remember everything! I will post those pics ASAP.
