Caydence really knows how to make the day interesting for her mommy and me. The day started out normal enough; getting her temperature, checking her weight and attempting to feed her. Caydence put on another ounce today so that means she has officially gained a little more then a pound since being born which is very good. But she still needs the majority of her food to be passed down her feeding tube which is unfortunate but I guess that's what it's there for. But this isn't where the day got interesting, it was when we tried to give her a bath.
While getting her ready for her bath, we had to take her diaper off and what a package of surprises she had for us. And then she felt it necessary to add to those surprises after we had her diaper off.(Ok, if you haven't figured out what the "surprises" are yet, there are only two things that you will find in a dirty diaper, think about it!!) Ok, so she finally finishes and we start bathing her in the baby tub that the nurses had brought in which had a nice pad in it so she wouldn't slide around and we didn't have to worry about her going under the water. Well, after we were a minute or so into the bath Caydence felt required to "surprise" the tub. To say the least we couldn't continue with her bath as it was no longer going to clean her, so we had to finish with a sponge bath.
But all in all, we had a lot of fun with our daughter and we learned more today about taking care of her when she comes home. We hope that she gets to come soon so we can enjoy having our daughter in our own home but we don't want her to come home before she's ready.
