Daily Hope: Thursday, January 8
As you can see, Hope had a very photogenic day. All the photo shoots went very well, she is quite the ham at times. Hope didn't have any big changes today, minus the incredible sucking that she showed us. Which is a big milestone and we are all so excited about!!!
Hope's nutrition will be remaining the same for at least another day, but they did add more calories, working on beefing her up!
As you can see, Hope's mommy & daddy are very active in her daily care. Taking temperatures, "burping" via tube, feeding, changing, etc. More ways to make sure Hope is feeling good and is comfortable. Obviously her favorite part of the day is storytime with Aunt Em. Today we read Ten Little Ladybugs. She thoroughly enjoyed it and was very excited that at the end of the book the ladybug made it home. Hope is very excited to go home, but she knows she has a long way to go before she can go home, so she's accepting that and working hard.
Hope gave a shoutout to Grandpa R who is snowed in at "home" in the G-rant. She said she misses you and then made some sort of a "sign language" with her hand that she said he would understand. (must be a Grandpa/Granddaughter thing)
Again, we are thankful today for the good day today. Aunt Em would rate today a solid 7, or a "sucking 7."
Sidebar.... due to popular demand.... Aunt Em is highly considering quitting law school and becoming a professional blogger, but only for Hope. Basically Aunt Em would serve as Hope's publicist and stylist, not to mention her own personal tutor. Mommy & Daddy (and also Grandma) advised that unless Aunt Em has a "rich uncle" to assist, that would probably not be the best idea in the world. Alas... continuing to freelance in "freetime" is what Aunt Em shall do.
