Update on Little Bit

Jillian is trucking right along.  She’s up to 3 lbs 12 oz!  Consistently gaining about an ounce a day.  Jilly Boo (I’ve got a million of them) is taking 3 bottles a day and will probably add another one tomorrow.  The rest of the feedings are given through the tube.  And she’s getting so much better at the bottle!  This weekend it was taking her 40 min to take one ounce.  This morning she drank it in 25 min for Daniel.  And at 2p, Little Peanut gulped it down in 17 min for me! (yes, I was totally trying to beat Daniel’s record!)

Here’s a peek at her little scrawny arms and legs:


Look how big that hat is on her!  And believe me, it is a really small hat.  I just knew it would fit! ha! (I should have put my hand beside her so you could get some perspective on how little she is!)

So glad she is doing so well! I just visited some friends in the hospital that had twin girls and they were both just under 4 pounds too when I visited. Tiny babies! Newborn babies are just so amazing!! I love her already!! And I'm so excited that she is here! And a part of your family!! (okay I'll stop with the excited sentence fragments and exclamation points)...but I'm really excited!!!! Yay for the Bridges!!

You know when you have time (ha!) you have to tell us her story! We are so happy for you and she is on our prayer list in SS so you are being lifted up! She is adorable!

Wow, you blogged twice and I missed them both!!! I am more than thrilled!! And so excited to hear of her growing so fast. Better get these sweet little preemie clothes in the mail to you quick!! She is so sweet and I will attest that none of the pictures of her do her justice. (not that they are not good pictures) But, she is simply a beautiful baby!!
