The big news of today is that Little Miss Minion is officially double her birth weight! Born at 1 pound 14 ounces. Tonight she is 3 pounds 12.7 ounces!

She was moved to the stepdown unit yesterday after I posted. She’s in a temp room right now, and then we are moving tomorrow into a room with a window. It will be nice to see the sun again, and she is developmentally ready for day and night cycles now. Her eyes seem to focus on things now, like our faces. I feel like she can look at us and actually see us now.

Breastfeeding attempt number 3 was mostly a nap. She was very awake and alert when Mr Minion held her earlier, and then I tried to feed her and she fell asleep. So the new plan is to try and feed her whenever she looks awake, whether it’s time for her scheduled feeding or not.

Looking forward to the window tomorrow!
