09 Jul 2016: Most of the retro posting is done . . . for now.
Success! We spent most of the day at Albany Med (of course). Leila is
doing great. More on that later. But we are still chilling in the
NICU. Today, I spent some of that time working on the laptop and wrote
lots and lots of backposts. I still need to get Karen’s AWESOME videos
up and a few of her pictures, but this finishes most of my old
Ha! Old . . . none of them are more than two months . . . old. Whatever.
I’ve got a picture or two from today I’d like to share and some
AWESOME video, but for some reason my phone is NOT wanting to sync to
Google’s cloud. Not sure why. Once I figure that out, I’ll update /
tweak this post with a pic or two and a video.
06 Jul 2016: Not sure how conscious she is here.
She may or may not be looking at me.
05 Jul 2016: Again. I am bad. I will do better. For Monkey.
I am, apparently, a horrible person. My daughter was born on May 12 of
this year. Yet, it took me nearly two months to write anything about
Clearly, I must make amends.
I am going to write some back posts, documenting the journey of my
Monkey. She deserves that and so much more. To recap, she was born
over two months early. She has been in NICU all this time. She was a
mere four pounds, nine ounces when she was born.
She is perfect.
Question: Why is her nickname Monkey?
Answer: Because she makes monkey sounds! On the day she was born,
and every day since, she has made these little squeaks. Sometimes they
sound like a premature laugh. They are adorable. And for some reason,
they made me thing of a monkey.
And there you have it. The origin of the Monkey.
04 Jul 2016: Tried to go cold . . . brewed.
This was such a cool idea. Too bad it didn’t quite work. Tasted
nice, but it was soooo weak. Must adjust and try again.
02 Jul 2016: She is soooo adorable when she is sleeping.
01 Jul 2016: She left us a present, in her diaper.
Thanks. From the bottom of our hearts, we really enjoyed that. Really.
Fortunately, I’ll get to embarass her with all these photos later. I
win the end. Always.
27 Jun 2016: We have sooooo many clothes.
Onesies don’t cost much. And they don’t really need that many
outfits. Yet, socially, we inundate new parents with clothing. And
while it is great, I kinda wish people would wait until they started
school. Inundating me with clothese when she starts highschool would
be just as appreciated.
I’m just saying.
