Little Elizabeth was a little tired today. She is still about 6 weeks away from her original birth date (end of March), but she has come a long way. Every day she is maturing and gaining weight. Tonight she was 1215 grams and cuter than ever. Her dad gave her a bath, and Elizabeth cried at first but didn't complain too much once in the warm water.

She is still getting 15 to 16 ml of milk every 2 hours. The doctors have decided not to push her too much. Her belly is not mature and her reflux is still there. So, moving her to a different hospital is on hold for now too. Her mom has tried breast feeding several times for practice. Elizabeth seems to know what she is doing, which is a great sign.

Wow Elizabeth! It is so great to hear that you are gaining weight.
Anthony and I are very happy that you will not be moving to another hospital.
Great work mom and Lizzy, breastfeeding already. Dad is going to be a pro at giving you baths, great work dad.

Lot's of love,
Laurie & Anthony
We will call you guys over the weekend.

Hey, Lizzy, your really moving along now and gaining chubbyness.
Your taking small steps forward but moving slowly ahead. Great!

Best wishes to all 3 of you.
