sunday march, 30

daddy came in to see me early this morning while he was at the hospital helping other sick kids.  he told me i needed to be his good luck charm today for his jayhawks.  he found the perfect jayhawk colored ribbon in my box of ribbons and put it in my hair.  mommy knew as soon as she saw me that daddy had already been to visit.  my ribbon made her laugh really hard.


Picture_0171 daddy made mommy take another picture of the end of the game so he could come back and show me that i really am his good luck charm.

Picture_004_3 you like my outfit?  my uncle charlie and aunt stacy gave it to me.  it’s pretty neat because it’s made especially for all my wires while i am in the nicu.

today i weighed 2 lbs 12 oz.  i am only 2 days away from my first try at taking a bottle.  dr. sadiq ( i like to call him mr. pushy) always thinks about letting me try earlier than when i’m 32 weeks but then he decides to let me get bigger over the next few days and then we will try it.  i think i’m ready.  i did really well with my pacifier today.  grandpa charlie told me that my adopted aunt kathleen in NY would be so proud of me.  i told him that i’m trying really hard for everyone so that i can get out of here and meet all of the amazing people that have been thinking about me and praying for me.  i am the luckiest little girl in the world.

love, ~adali

    Baby Adali, You keep on bringing the good luck for KU. I am, like your mommy, an Illinois fan but they didn’t bring their game.
