Baby Girl

This morning at 2am I called the NICU to see how Evangelynn was doing. Her nurse said she was doing fine and she had even further decreased her O2 needs during the night.

Then she told me that earlier in the evening she heard Evangelynn sucking on something from out in the hall (she is in a private room of her own). When she went in to check on her she found her sucking her thumb!! The nurse even called another nurse in just to see how cute she was with her thumb in her mouth. I guess she looks like Asher, and she'll be taking after him in this arena as well!

Cute!! I can't remember when Elf started sucking her thumb. Hmmm...

D had such similar issues to little Evangelynn--and he is SO fine now. In fact, W has struggled with croup far more than D, so his early breathing issues didn't leave any lasting effects. (And, for the short time I did it, he was a better nurser than W even though he got a late start!)

Thank you Betsy for that encouragement!! Ethan and I didn't get to breastfeed and with a stay in the NICU that's my long tern concern.
