tuesday april, 8

i went from weighing 3 lbs 6 oz to 3 lbs 11 oz.  yippee!  i’m not sure if my weight the night before was accurate but we will take 3 lbs 11 oz.  my mommy and i both had eye exams today. i had one because preemies that are born before 32 weeks and are growth restricted can often get retinopothy of prematurity (ROP).  this basically means that the blood vessels in my little eyes don’t form correctly.  well, good news, i do not show any signs of ROP at this point.  The eye doctor said i had really good eyes for my age.  i will have another eye exam in 2 weeks because i can still form ROP.  mommy had one just because it was time and hers was great as well. 


since i am doing so well feeding with mommy and getting so big ( we play the "so big" game every day), we get to try feeding twice a day now.  that makes both of us very happy because it means we get to spend more time together.  i was also happy today to spend time with my ba-pa (grandpa todd) and ga-ga (grandma sana)  and my uncle sari and aunt micala.  uncle sari has big hands but i still like to grab on to his finger to show him how strong i am.


my mommy just left the hospital for the night so i’m hitting the sack.  I need to be rested and pretty when she comes tomorrow morning to see me.  sleep tight!

love, adali

    Hey it’s your cousin Tressie (although I will probably feel more like an Aunt to you.)
    You are getting so big!!!! And so BEAUTIFUL!!! I was really looking foward to meeting you, but I guess I will have to wait until you get bigger and can come visit is in Kansas City. I love watching you grow, keep up the good work and tell your mommy and daddy hi for me!

    I’ve been following Adali’s blog since she’s been born. I can’t believe how big she has gotten already. She’s got those chubby baby cheeks now! She’s such a pretty girl and I will continue to keep you all in my prayers.
