I got it!

I got her to give me just a few smiles for the camera!

Just gotta love those smiles...she does smile a little bigger...but those are hard to catch on my outdated camera.

Kate had an overall pretty good day. We played a lot...and she got into knocking down towers, reading a few books and chewing on a few toys. She is just SO hungry. Their "feeding plan" is enough to drive me absolutely crazy. I am planning to get up early tomorrow and head over for rounds so I can get the lowdown on her feeding plan. Right now she is getting 2 cc's an hour (30 cc in an ounce) It's barely anything....poor thing grabs at anything that appears to be something she can eat or drink.

Krista, I had to tell you that you really inspired me today: "So...we wait. We keep on keepin' on. But I tell you...one little smile from that little adorable girl..and it's enough motivation for me! Yeah it's hard...yeah, it stinks...yeah, I hate being away from Seth and Andy...but little Kate is holding her own and givin it all she has...I can do the same for her!"

I was frustrated with some meaningless stuff and then I read your blog and I am right back at it hitting it with all I got.

You really are awesome.
Love, Scott (& Laura)

I LOVE the pictures! She is so adorable when with that little smile. Thank you so much for the pictures. Kate has really been on my mind lately and in my prayers. I really hope you get the feeding plan straightened out. I understand they are trying to take it slow but that really is a small amount. I'll check for another update tomorrow.

Oh that just stinks that the poor girl is so hungry and can't eat. :( Hopefully today's feeding plan involves EATING.

Take care and I love the smiley pics! Too cute.
