Health update and more kangaroo care!
Today Shane got to hold Olivia for the first time. He was absolutely thrilled and Ella was happy as a clam all cuddled up into her daddy's fuzzy mat on his chest ;-). It was so much fun to see how much they both loved it!! It was so precious and wonderful. I'm so lucky to be married to such a wonderful man who loves his beautiful girls so much. My heart could just explode at how much he loves his family. He's a very, very good daddy!! After Shane spent over an hour doing some kangaroo care with Ella, she got put back in her bed. She was getting extremely cranky and kept trying to alternately suck on and rip off her ventilator. The nurse said it's possible she would take it off herself, and it might mean she doesn't need it anymore. They've weaned her pretty far off of it so she SHOULD be off the ventilator tomorrow. Pleaseeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!! Then she was on her tummy and she got all attitudey about that too. She was cranking at the nurse pretty good until she turned Ella on her back and changed her positions. She's already got a little attitude, just like her big sister!!
