now that i am getting older, i like to keep my eyes open more.  even though i can really only see shadows, i always know when mommy or daddy come in the room because they say sweet things to me.  i try to open my eyes to let them know that i hear them.  i like to hear them talk to me when they are holding me.  they tell me my eyes are getting prettier each day.

  ga-ga got to touch me for the first time yesterday.  we were both happy about that.

Adali323sunday_020_2 sometimes, daddy helps the nurses get me in and out of my house.  i get cranky when they do this but i know they don’t mean to make me mad. 

this morning when mommy showed up to see me the nurse told her that i had more episodes overnight and that i needed to have my oxygen level increased from 21% to 35%.  i know she was sad to hear this but i was just tired.  i did better this afternoon.  i weigh 2 lbs. 4 oz now or 1020 grams.  it is a big milestone for me to be over 1 kilogram.  because i was born so little for my age dr. sadiq is really pushing me to gain even more weight than i am.  he added 1/4 teaspoon of formula to my milk.  each 1/4 teaspoon adds 2 calories.  i know that doesn’t seem like a lot but for my little body, it really helps.  once i start to gain weight it will help me regulate my heart rate and oxygen levels too.  well in order to grow big and strong, i need my rest so nighty night everyone.

    Adali,
    You are such an amazing little miracle! I love looking at your pictures every day. I am so glad you are growing and getting stronger little by little. Jastin and Jamie I hope you are taking care of yourselves too! By the way Adali, I think you need to wear the Jayhawk t-shirt again this week. You look great in Crimson and Blue! You are all in our thoughts and prayers every day! Love, Jenny
