One Month Old

The one month mark has turned out to be a day full of bottle feedings for Blair! She is doing fantastically taking a bottle. She eats so fast, you have to really watch her so she doesn't suck the whole two ounces down without stopping! It took less than one day for her to realize that when you put a cloth under her chin, she's getting food. Her mouth flies open immediately. The poor thing was still hungry when we got finished this afternoon, but we have to wait until tomorrow to see if she can have more than two ounces. I had no idea they were going to bottle feed her every three hours right away. I thought they would add a couple of bottles a day and work up to taking out the feeding tube, but they may take it out really soon (like tomorrow!). Blair has pulled it out several times in the last few days anyway. The doctor said that if she's awake and wants to eat at feeding time, give her a bottle.

So we've come a LONG way this week. She is also in a normal crib today wrapped in a tiny bundle! Brad said she looks like something that should hang on the Christmas tree.
