Baby Bella Day 78

Our little girl had another stable and all around great day. I got to bottle feed her today at 9pm. It was the first time she ever got a bottle and she did pretty well. She got through 12ML of the feed, but she forgot to breathe several times and is still learning how to breathe and drink milk at the same time. She is so adorable and I got to hug and kiss on her again a lot!! It is so amazing holding her and having her look at me and smile. She is so precious and I can't wait to be able to take her home.

On a side note, Machel and I went to Monticello today and spent a fabulous day together. It has been a long time since we were able to do something like that and it was so beautiful. We have been in Virginia for almost 3 months now and have not taken advantage of the beauty, history and nearby attractions. At one moment I looked at Machel and said this is crazy isn't it? I was happy to be spending some time with my wonderful wife.

Here are some pictures......enjoy!!

What a doll. She looks fantastic and seems to be doing so great. Bottle feeding is such a big step! Congrats to you guys for taking a little time for yourselves. It is hard to feel like you can spare the time for it (I know this well), but it is so important and makes such a difference. Keep the pictures coming! You will be so grateful you have them later down the road.

How wonderful can that be. Holding Bella and then spending a day together at Monticello. When I visited DC that was a side trip I didn't get to make. Isabella is doing so well. Wonderful. Prayers and love, M
