It’s great to see Katie Rose doing normal baby things. She’s still monitored and in the NICU, still on supplemental oxygen, and still gets most of her calories via a feeding tube. That said, she breast feeds, drinks from a bottle, burps, poops, and goes to sleep on the drop of a dime—just like a normal full-term baby.
Yesterday, I got to feed Katie a bottle. I loved looking at her eyes, with her little fingers touching my hand as I fed her.
After she had drunk her fill, Phyllis held Katie Rose on her shoulder and helped her burp.
Katie Rose looks so plump and happy, just like a normal baby doing normal baby things.
