Good day for Jill Bug and bath time for Avery

Jillian and Mommy
Dad came down after work

This feels nice mom

Hair washing time, my favorite!

I don't like this part at all.

Fancy Avery

Today was another big day for the girls. Avery went to her first doctor's appointment to get a check up and make sure she's growing. She's grown 1 inch since birth and gained 5 oz over the weekend...little piggy! Dr. Cavazos was very happy with how she looked. She also lost the rest of her umbilical cord and mom couldn't wait to give her a good scrub down! She seemed to like the warm water, but not the actual bath.
Jillian's doctor called this morning with an update and she maintained her glucose levels over night, so out came her PICC line!!! She now only has monitors for her heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, and a feeding tube. He also said that if she continues to do well through the day, she might get to move to the Progressive room tomorrow. That's the last stop before rooming in to go home. We are so grateful that there is a light at the end of this tunnel! We're ready to be home and begin enjoying our family of four.
We have video of Avery's bath, hopefully I can get it posted tomorrow. For now it's bedtime before little miss decides to wake up to eat.
