Hey everyone! We are loving having Margaret in our lives as an outty baby!! She's beautiful, funny, and teaching us daily how much God must love us!!!! We do have a prayer request. She's having new born issues...like so many babies. They told us when we came home that she was a bit jaundice. We went yesterday to get tested again(one of the most heart breaking things...they had to prick her foot to get the blood..and she screamed more than when she first popped out!!). The results were that her level was a 13...not terrible, but something to keep an eye on. Also..she had lost 10% of her weight since birth(normal for most babies)...but she really needed to not lose much more. They had us come back today...and once again took her blood from her foot. Not as bad as yesterday...she's getting tough!!!(but still broke dad's heart!!). This time it was a little over 15...which is getting closer to where they will take action to treat it(not a terrible thing...baby tanning bed kind of thing). However, she dropped a little more weight. So now she is 1 lbs less then when she was born(which honestly is still bigger than a lot of babies!!). So, we are adding an oz of formula to her feeding in addition to what Shana is providing. We really need her to eat well...and POOP!! YES..I'M ASKING YOU PRAY SHE POOPS!!! :) This will also help to get rid of the stuff that is causing the jaundice. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS!!!!!!!!!!!!
(oh..in other news..she did better night #2 at home than night #1...prayerfully this trend will continue...for mommy's & daddy's sake!!!! AND...we think she likes the car seat!! ha ha)
