July 2

Hi Sweetness! You did a great job this morning with your bottle! Mama fed you for the first 5 minutes of your OT appointment and you took 5 CCs! Ideal is 2-5 CCs per minute, so it was still pretty slow, but you had a great rhythm down. I am so proud of you! When I handed you off to the OT you got frustrated and didn’t do much else until our time was up. For the rest of your feeds you weren’t as enthusiastic, but as Daddy and I were leaving this evening you were going to town on that binky. I am encouraged by your progress! I pray that you show enough improvement by Monday to convince the doctors you can pick this up in another week or two and we can cancel your surgeries for next week!

You were so cute this evening—you kept stretching your arms down to your sides and up over your head. Your eyes were open and you looked like…such a person! Daddy couldn’t get enough of you tonight. He really missed you yesterday, and I could tell how happy you were to be with him tonight also.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all three of you. I can't wait for little Audrey to come home and realize that I am her favorite uncle!
