A Mind of Her Own

Natalie and I just returned from the hospital not too long ago and are puzzled by Kylee's behavior.  We tried to feed her at 9:00 and it went okay, but they still had to give her the remaining amount she did not take through her feeding tube.  If I remember correctly, Kylee is getting 53 cc (1.79 ounces) per feeding and is hit or miss on whether or not she finishes it all within thirty minutes.  Oh, speaking of her feeding tube, she pulled it out again on her own this afternoon

We got to watch the nurse give Kylee a bath and she gave us some pointers on how to bathe an infant.  The nurse told Natalie that we could give Kylee a bath next time, under supervision of course, as it is important for us to learn these skills.  Kylee didn't enjoy being lathered up too much; however, she did like getting rinsed off and sitting in the basin full of warm water.

We were there when Kylee got weighed tonight and she is still hovering in the neighborhood of 5 pounds and 3 or 4 ounces.  Everything is measured in kilograms and I can't remember her exact weight in order to convert it myself.

Right now...we are still in a holding pattern and waiting for Kylee to eat!!!
