Full House!

2 months old !
3 pounds !
She is working her way back up on the feedings which means the IV nutrition is being turned down.  I am looking forward to getting rid of the IV...again, as this will mean she can wear some of the preemie clothes we have been given.  (With the IV in she needs clothes that velcro around her arms since you can't just pull them through the sleeves.)
Azure is 33 weeks gestation today.  Her new neighbor in the bed next door was born Sunday night at 31 weeks.  She weighed in at 4 pounds 9.7 ounces.  It just seems incredible the difference time in the womb makes.
Gotta go, nature calls.  In this case, that means my boobs are full and letting me know it is past time to pump.  Don't sneeze or get a chill because your nipples will zing like they are hooked up to Consumer's Power! (Yeast infection seems MUCH better by the way.)

Hoping she gets that IV out soon & wonderful to hear she's at 3 pounds. That is terrific news!

Here's hoping you will be iv free soon! When our kiddo hit three pounds we were finally able to dress him, so I understand your longing to put her in some clothes. And congrats on the weight gain - she is getting big!

Great to hear that Azure hit the 3 pounds milestone!
That's a big accomplishment, little lady!!! And I am praying that both Azure and my little Luzio can be IV free very very soon. Much love to you.

Pump on, sister.
