Where's "Savannah"?

Per the title, please see the following picture. We decided to put Savannah in her crib with all of her stuffed animals and this is the outcome....too cute.

We had a wonderful week and week-end as Patrick's brother Chris and his wife Laurie and their son Aidan (16 months) were in town for a visit...Aidan is so cute and is getting so big. Patrick and I also managed to get some things done around the house. Chris and Patrick hung our dining room light and our dining room furniture arrived on Wednesday. Patrick and I hung some pictures so our house is finally starting to feel like OUR home. Savannah had a follow up eye appointment on Thursday the 12th and all is well. Apparently pre-mature babies need to have their eyes checked to ensure that the blood vessels are developing properly. This was Savannah's third eye check, once in the NICU then again this past December and then this week. She will go back 6 months from now, but I was told that all is normal so no concerns.
Love to all,

What a great day today was!!!!

We went to our bi-weekly weigh in and Savannah surprised us all. For the past three months she has been gaining 6-8 ounces per weigh in (every two weeks), however, this morning she weighed in at 8 lb 10 oz. which is a weight gain of a full pound over the past 2 weeks. We are so pumped about today's weight gain and could not be happier.

Dr. Yee was very pleased and feels that today's weigh in is going to start a very positive trend in the weight gain department. The doctor also gave us the OK to finally start some tummy time so April and Savannah will be spending some time on their belly's and interacting.

We would also like to wish a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to my cousin Wendy and her husband Ian who celebrated the birth of their daughter on Tuesday, March 3, 2009. MacKenna Elle MacDowell was born early in the afternoon and is now resting peacefully at home with her proud parents.

We are looking forward to introducing Savannah and MacKenna during our next trip to NY.
