Week 7

Kayla is making eye contact a lot and starting to following objects.  She's been gaining about an ounce a day.  This week she has started to poop her mustard poo every other day.  She's been sleeping a good 5 hours straight at night.  I don't have any schedule with her yet.  Feeding her on demand and letting her sleep whenever she wants works out a lot better for me.  
Yesterday we got to see the cardiologist in Lowell instead of having to drive to the children's hospital in Little Rock.  It was nice not having to sit in the van for 6+ hours for a doctor's visit.  
Height:  51.5 cm
Weight:  9lbs
Oxygen Saturation:  ??  
The pulse ox measured at 78.  However, the doctor didn't believe it because she was looking very pink and not blue.  So we tried to measure it again, but the machine was low on batteries and kept turning off.  We think it was at 85.  When we measure at home it is normally ranging around 80-85.   We are scheduled to go again next week for an echo.  The doctors say that if she stays the way she is until she's at least 3 months, then she can probably skip the shunt surgery.    Then she'll be big enough for the next surgery.  

David is doing great.  He's a great big brother and will give Kayla kisses when she's sad (crying) or try to give her a blanket or other stuff that he thinks she needs.  
We're trying to potty train him.  Daycare thinks he has peed in the toilet there and is ready for it.  We've been letting him sit on the toilet for the last few months hoping that he'll just go on his own.  He seems to want to, but he pretty much just sits there with nothing happening.   It'd be nice to have just one baby in diapers.  :)
