packing it on

Abacus climbed above 1600g today. She graduated from her incubator into an open top crib, and was wearing clothes. She's definitely starting to look a bit more plump, though new born babies still look like gigantic mutants next to her. She's chugging heaps of milk, about 35mls every 3 hours and everything else is still really good, breathing wise and glucose wise etc.

she kind of squeeks like a mouse sometimes when she's sleeping which is pretty cute. They were saying she could be out in as little as 2 weeks, which seems crazy to me, she's still so small, but she's so strong that they have little reason to keep her in. It would be good if she could stay until we move into our house, but it would be good to not have to go visit her too, like she was someone else's baby.

scott and danielle,

i'm in the break room of my job looking like a total idiot crying at a computer.

she is so so beautiful. her little feet! and hands! and her pretty eyes and nose and hairs. I haven't seen her bellybutton but i'm sure that is beautiful too!

i love you so much, and feel so wonderful knowing she's healthy and in the world and just waiting there for me to scoop her up when she comes for her visit to california.

I love you ABACUS!!!!!
