|Last time you'll ever see those wires!|
Also, the doctor gave said we can FINALLY take her off the apnea monitor. I cannot explain to you how excited I am about this. Lea is finally free! I am so happy that now when I pick up my girl, I don't have to worry about any stupid wires getting tangled or pulled out. Now Lea won't have any red marks under those sweet little arms, and overall she'll be much more comfortable.
With all the excitement, though, does come some anxiety. Lea has never slept without being attached to her monitor. Although that machine has been a severe pain-in-the-butt, it has given us peace of mind at night when we're asleep. Luckily, I've learned an invaluable lesson over the past few months: PRAYER CONQUERS ALL. So tonight, I will be praying that God watches over Lea as she sleeps wire-free for the first time.
The doctor also said we can start giving Lea solid food -- so we're going to try some cereal later this evening. Time is flying by. Is my little eight pound baby really about to try solid food??? Amazing. My tiny girl continues to thrive in every way. I am so proud of her, and all that she has accomplished in her short time on this Earth. I can't wait to see what the future holds for her!
