growing

baby reese is doing well!! :) she is still at one bottle feeding a day... its totally normal for babies to take a little while to get the hang of sucking, and building up the endurance to take the whole bottle. she's taking the whole bottle, but she takes the whole 30 minutes. AND .... they keep increasing her feedings {which is awesome, but it means she has to finish the whole bottle regardless of the amount!} she's almost @ 40mLs in each bottle! she was 4 pounds 11 ounces last night.
ian and i are going to visit her tonight so hopefully she'll be off her IV {they lower the IV levels based on how much she is eating, and she is eating a lot now, so hopefully the IV will be discontinued!} they will keep her PICC line in for a little while just in case and for blood draws.

thank you for praying! still don't have a homecoming date. pray that she would have the endurance to finish up her bottles and for protection and continued growth. we are so thankful for her!
