Virginia has had a busy week filled with lots of progress, alot of growing, a steady stream of visitors and some new experiences.
Heaths parents, aunt, sister, brother in law, and nephews came down to Connecticut for a few days to visit and my parents, sister, brother in law and nieces are arriving tomorrow for a visit. We are enjoying celebrating the holidays with our families, showing off our growing little girl, and getting their help in getting Virginia's room together. We are thankful to each of them for their love and support, home cooked meals, help around the house and always knowing how to make us smile.
Virginia is up to 3lbs 6ozs and 16.5" long. She is now on the lowest level of respiratory support and has truly made tremendous progress in the past few weeks. They have tried to bottle feed her, but it is clear that she needs a little more time until she is ready for that challenge. Like every other milestone, we are confident that Virginia will tackle bottle feeding when she is ready.
We are looking forward to the new year and know that 2012 will be a great year for our family. We hope that it is filled with good health, lot of laughter and happiness for our family and yours.
