Last night we experienced some technical difficulties. We were all so excited, Morgan Kate included, that we were going to be oxygen free for the night. Things were going great until the pulse ox (the monitor that reads her oxygen saturation) began to malfunction. Of course, just our luck. The first night our baby girl is able to go without oxygen and our monitor won't cooperate. I noticed earlier yesterday that it was having some minor difficulties reading, therefore, I went ahead and placed an order for a few new probes. However, at about 1:30am the probe stopped reading completely, meaning that we had no clue how her oxygen levels were. I have been watching her levels while on oxygen non-stop since we have been home so I knew what she would most likely be reading with the oxygen on. I didn't know what she would be reading or how she would do at night without the oxygen. So, at 1:30am we had to make a parental decision and we (well I did, Travis was fast asleep) decided it was better to be safe than sorry. I tiptoed to the crib and tried to sneak the cannula back on her face. She must have been dreaming some really good dreams because she didn't move at all. Around noon today our new probes arrived and they are working beautifully. Morgan Kate has been fast asleep since 9pm and the monitor says she is doing great. What a blessing!

I promise I am still hard at work trying to figure out this "video thing". It will come. I can't wait for you guys to see it. I mean it's total amateur video, but Morgan Kate is laughing and smiling and making all sorts of noises (and of course I am in the background making ridiculous noises). Watching it will be kind of like seeing her in person.
