Peaceful Sunday

We spent the day today hanging out with Fiona, taking naps, visiting with Adele, and relaxing. It was nice to have a quiet day together. Fiona spent the majority of the day not wearing either her trousers or her shirt and seemed happy with that! She's started to do this super cheesy grin when you point a camera at her, and is makes me laugh every time...


She also found my winter boots in the basement and insisted on wearing them around the house all day...


Here's a video of her clomping around... in the video sesame street is paused on the tv, and Elmo's face is there. Fiona sees the tv, and I think the word she says is "Elmo" then "Dada" to ask Ben to turn it back on. She's trying to talk more and more and it's really cute!


In Adele updates she is still super cute! :-) She has started to have some Apnea, or A/B spells (what our nurses call them) which is very common and affects about 85% of babies born before 34 weeks. She stops breathing and forgets to start again and the nurse has to give her a little nudge to remind her. This morning she had 7 spells, and they started her on a stimulant medication to make her a little more alert to try and avoid her forgetting. It seems to be working because her nurse tonight said she hadn't had any spells since she'd come on shift. Yay Adele! This is something that she'll naturally outgrow as she gets older and her brain is a little more developed.

In more positive news, she's tolerating her feedings really well, and they have started to increase the amount of milk she gets by 1ml each feeding. Hopefully her little tummy will continue to enjoy it!

Tonight when I visited she was in a cute pose under the lights... so here's your Adele photo of the day...


I'm planning to take a photo of her every day to document how much she grows over the first year, you'll be able to see the progression on flickr.

Yay! You're doing a 365 of Adele! It is amazing to see how much they change so fast :) Love that cheesy grin on Fiona...cracked me up!

Adele is doing amazing! I remember those apnea spells when Adriana was a baby. They can be scary, but the nurses are so calm and have everything under control. Fiona continues to be SUPER cute... my favorite part is the backwards boots ;)

Hi Mrs. C.S. I love your Fletch 365 so much, it made me want to do one of my own! :-)

Hi Lori! They are scary! But luckily she's having almost none now, yay!
