The Skinny.

Or... maybe the not-so-skinny?

Sydney hit 3 pounds today.
HOLLA!

She's breathing well. A couple days ago they brought her down to 4 on the CPAP again (this is the third try), and so far so good. If she continues the way she is she could potentially be off the blasted thing in about a week. 
(Love/Hate relationship with the CPAP.)

Also--the doctor didn't hear her usual murmur this morning. Could be a good thing, could just be a fluke. It's not uncommon for murmurs to "come and go". That being said, if the murmur "stays away" for a couple days they will be able to increase her feeds, which will consequently help her gain weight, and thus help in getting her off the CPAP sooner.

Oh, and did I mention she's as cute as ever?

Here's that movie I promised. 
Wow. It's been a week and a half since I took this.
She's gained several ounces since then.

Emily is doing really well. She's a little fireball--soooo much energy in that tiny body! I have all sorts of movies of her dancing and laughing. More of those later. Right now I just feel relieved that I've blogged something at all. :)
