Baby Bella Day 55

I am sorry for not posting, but yesterday was a boring day for Bella, but I couldn't go see her. I was not feeling well and had a slight fever and flu like symptoms. Machel and I both called up to the hospital and spoke with nurses and they have lowered her CPAP pressure to 4! The little princess is breathing very well and remains around 23% O2 saturation. If she continues to do well they might take her off of CPAP and put her on a high flow nasal cannula. She continues to grow and eat very well. All the nurses say she is cute and a very easy baby. She really seems to be sticking to the 3 hour routine and really only cries or fusses when she is hungry, has a wet diaper or has something in her throat/mouth. She is very active and alert when she's awake and really likes to interact. But if she's asleep she does not want to be messed with!! It is so cute, if it is noisy she will put her hands over her ears, if it is too bright she will put them over her eyes and if she's really mad about something she will cry and kick her legs out.
She is up to 3lbs 7ozs and just continues to grow!! It's funny, we are tracking her growth and her length is only at 10% normal growth for a baby, but her weight is right at the 50% mark, hence why she is our little chunky monkey!! Well, I will add lots of pictures tonight and mommy is back in town today!!! Bella and I are very excited!! Thank you for all of the prayers!!
