Dr. Scarlet

Scarlet is doing well in the NICU. She was moved to the step-down unit on Saturday and has been there ever since. She has a nice little suite right by the front door. She also moved up to the incubator. Apparently she can grow better in there. It's like a greenhouse for a baby. Her feedings have been advanced and she is tolerating them well. She has started doing non-nutritive breastfeeding, but she freaks out when she gets my milk in her mouth. She still just gets all of her feedings through a tube since she is too small to suck strong enough to take them from a nipple. We are so proud of our little fighter! (p.s. I'm pretty sure that doctor's outfit is a build-a-bear outfit, small enough for those tiny bears, yet too big on our little Scarlet!)

I can't get over how tiny and such a miracle she is, and yet she's grown so much it seems, especially in the picture taken by the NICU nurse.
