So, I wrote an entire post on Abby's two-month birthday that accidentally got deleted, so we're playing a bit of catch-up today, but it's worth it because we are going home!!!!
At two months old, Abby loves smiling at lights and windows, playing with her ears and hair, and taking long naps! She very much dislikes having her nose suctioned out and still doesn't care for diaper changes. She has become much more interactive lately and is starting to develop quite the little personality.
Abby has tolerated her goal feeding regimen for a few days, and they've decided that whatever changes we make from here on out can be done at home (as long as she's doing well, of course)! She has surpassed 9lbs now, showing consistent weight gain for the last two and a half weeks - which is amazing considering that she gained almost nothing for six weeks.
We are more confident going home this time around, since (with the exception of, you know, neurosurgery) this admission has been all about getting to understand Abby. Jameson and I feel like we get her quirks and eccentricities better and have a better idea of when to be concerned and when to let things slide. Going home is still nerve-wracking, but we're optimistic that things will go more smoothly this time around! We'll have lots of doctors appointments coming up, so Abby will still be closely monitored without having to be inpatient, which helps ease our worries a little.
Once we're home and settled in, I'll update more on our short and long-term plans!
Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers!!!!
