Well, my little girl is up to 10 pounds exactly and 22 inches long. she looks a whole hell of a lot longer lol. She did well with her shots, only fussed for 2 seconds. She's a tough girl. She came home and slept for a good 5 hours or so and now she is super clingy, and fussy. She falls asleep for (literally) 2 minutes then wakes up whining. I gave her some tylenol and it's only helping her to stay asleep for about 5-10 minutes at a time. her skin is looking really good, i'll try to take a new picture tonight of it. I'm exhausted today for some reason, so i'm keeping this short.

Oh and I must throw in that I am extremely proud of myself. Last night I knew Andy was super stressed out while at work because he had a lot to get done and would be there late... and he knew he had to help with her bath and do her bandages when he got home (which takes anywhere from a hour to a hour and a half)... so I figured I would help out. I did a bath with her by myself and even did her bandages (first time for me, andy always does them). The bath was a challenge to do without sitting in the tub with her. Simply because leaning over the tub, holding her body under water was a challenge. She looked at me quite confused, probably because she's used to me being the one to comfort her through it all. But I did it! :)


  1. Hey there... I heard about your blog spot from a nurse in the NICU my baby was at. My son was born the 6th and has EHK as well. I am just looking for a friend and contact who would have sort of idea what I am going through. I would love to hear more of your story when you get a chance... thank you and God Bless!
