Sweet Kaitlin

Mom and Kaitlin

As Kaitlin is a bit bigger and breathing on her own, we were able to hold her for the first time today.  It was precious to see Qumi  hold little Katie as she slept.  Katie was even fed about 7ml today while she was in Qumi’s arms. After 45 minutes or so, it was my turn.  I was really surprised at just how tiny everything is, tiny head, tiny arms, tiny fingers, but it all works and looks just like any other baby (just a bit smaller). I spent the next 30 minutes staring at my sleeping beauty and occasionally sneaking a peek at Kristin sleeping. Tomorrow is the day Kristin comes off oxygen (hopefully) and if so, we will get to hold her as well. I can’t wait!
