New Lindy Pictures and Updates! 4 weeks old today!

I have lots of new Lindy pictures from the weekend and today. We FINALLY got to hold Lindy and love on her today. I have held Will three different times and today is the first day we have gotten to hold Lindy. Since I have held Will, Drew got to hold Lindy. I was jealous! They were changing her bed today which is why she is out of her isolette. After we changed her bed the nurse put on some of her new clothes. It was like she was dressing up a little baby doll! She looked so funny! It was so nice to be able to see her up close and kiss her precious little head!

Lindy had a quiet weekend. The question about an infection last week has been resolved, she does NOT have one! This allows her to have the PDA surgery now that there is no question. The attending doctor was supposed to talk with the surgeon today about scheduling it this week. So far we have not heard when it has been scheduled for.

They are continuing to measure her head circumference and check her fontanel (the soft spot on her head) each day. There have not been any real changes so there are no plans for any interventions right now. They are planning on another cranial ultrasound on Thursday. We hope there are no changes before that.

Other big news for Lindy - she has had a couple small poops this weekend! She had been having some issues with this area, so we are excited about this new development! It's the little things in life we get excited about now! There has been talk of starting to feed her sometime this week. We'll have to wait and see.

Lindy weighed 2 pounds 8 ounces today and was 13 5/8 inches long.

And now, time for the pictures! Anyone who knows me well knows that I take a ton of pictures! Will and Lindy will never know what I actually look like since I'm always behind a camera!

Drew, holding Lindy and looking a little bit nervous!

Lindy's new shirt from Mimo (Drew's mom, Lynn). Mimo thought I might be getting too big for it. But she's not, it's pretty big on her!

Just a sweet picture of Lindy on her belly! I love how her legs are scrunched up!

Lindy gets her turn with Drew's wedding ring. It slides right over her hand onto her wrist.

We finally get to give our little girl some love!

Lindy's first day with clothes on! The nurse continued to give her a make over with a new cap and booties! Doesn't she look like a little baby doll?

It looks and sounds like it was a great weekend for you all! I am so glad to hear that Lindy doesn't have an infection and that things are moving in the right direction. You look wonderful too! I can't tell you what a blessing it is to read the updates on Will and Lindy and see how God is answering prayers! Thanks for keeping us up to date on their progress.
Love & continued prayers,

We hope that Lindy will keep improving every day.

Lindy looks so cute in her clothes! I was praying for no infection, and I'm so excited she'll get the surgery she needs soon. It's great news that Will is doing so well! They are so beautiful, and I know it meant so much to be able to hold them! Give them lots of love for me!
