Natalie Holding Kylee for the First Time

We went to see Kylee this evening and Natalie was able to hold her for the first time.  While Natalie held Kylee, they fed her 5 cc of mama's milk and she was able to keep it down without any problem.  Kylee is being fed right now through a tube that goes into her stomach through her mouth.  They say that Kylee would be able to suck from a bottle just fine; however, she hasn't developed the skills to swallow yet....still too early.  Natalie was super excited to hold Kylee and she turned into a brand new woman.  Natalie held Kylee for about 30 or so minutes and we had to pry them apart at the end.

Right before we put Kylee back in her little space capsule, we were able to take the CPAP off for a brief moment to get a better picture of her face.  Unfortunately, we couldn't take all of the tape and stuff off of her face, but we got a much better idea of how she looks!
