Miss Annika is doing well, lots of sleeping, eating, and pooping. Mommy and Daddy have been getting all the snuggles we can while trying to keep the big brother and big sister entertained as well.
Friends near and far have been so helpful, and even though we received such an abundant supply of meals while we were making trips back and forth to the NICU, we've continued to have people offer to keep us well fed--what a blessing!
Our biggest struggle since bringing Annika home has been transitioning from the bottle to the breast, but after getting a nipple-shield yesterday and deciding to breastfeed exclusively for 2-3 days, I think we've made a breakthrough and it's been 24 hours since she's needed to take any of her feedings by bottle!
Hopefully the next post won't be so long in coming and will be filled with cute, snuggly, newborn photos...and of course trick-or-treating pics as well!
