Grace is Growing....

Our little Gracie is growing so much! Every day we are amazed at how she is changing and becoming bigger and better! She is now off of the intense breathing CPAP machine and she is on a regular nasal cannula (which means she is breathing room air, she just needs some pressure in her nose/throat to remind her to breathe!).

She is such an angel. She is awake more and more during the day and night. She wiggles her little arms and legs and looks around with her gorgeous big eyes. She loves her daddy and pops wide awake when she hears his voice. She loves to snuggle and cuddle while she eats or just while she sleeps. This week she has started orally feedings and she has taken to it like a fish in the water! We are thrilled because this is just one step closer to getting her home!

What an angel. We love her so much and we are so proud of her.

Precious face!

Chillin' out after eating. Look at that cute outfit! {Thanks Justina!}

SHE LOVES HER BINKIE!
