Lucy's Bath Time

Giving Lucy a bath is quite an adventure.

She's slick and squirmy and loves getting her hair washed.

What a Ride

To make a long story short.....what a ride. Our little Lucy has arrived. Two and a half months too early but still a mighty little baby. Now 1 lb. 13 oz. our little Lu Bug is doing great. She is on minimal oxygen support and has started feedings (a whopping 2 ml). Last night she got her picc line which is just a central IV that can stay in place longer. Changes come daily but with extra love and attention from her nurses and doctors Lucy is expected to grow up big and strong. Our journey has only begun but Josh and I are ready for the ride. We want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. We feel the love and support that you all give to us and don't know how we'll ever be able to thank you enough.
