Lily got to suck on a binky for the first time today!
We had to hold it in for her, of course.
Lily's daddy was at work today. He also worked yesterday, but made the long trip back to see Lily last night and just a bit this morning. We are glad that he is doing what he needs to do to make it possible for both Lily and Cassandra to be here. He will be back again tomorrow, and neither he nor we can wait! Lily's mommy was a bit disappointed about not holding her yet. We found out that someone had spoken too soon, and that may not happen for awhile. She is, however, very excited about Lily's being weaned off the nitric, and of course a bit concerned about the planned placement of the PIC line.

Lily likes her new Lovey very much even though its kind of huge. She actually seems to enjoy grabbing on to it. Three separate times we have come in to find her grasping it and rubbing it. I am so glad! It's about time we got something pink in there for her :) I made Lily a little cocoon of her own, just for fun. Who knows when or if she will be able to use it.
