still reading?

are you still reading?  If you are, here's an update :-)

She's doing so amazingly well, it is wonderful.  She's still gaining good weight, about an ounce a day, she's up to around 7.5 lbs or a little over right now.  She's finished with her epogen shots and the doc checked her blood levels last week, she's no longer anemic!  She's awake a lot more too, we no longer have to wake her up to eat.  Tonight I took her to a Stampin' Up! meeting and she was awake the whole time, just looking around.  Of course Grandma held her almost the whole time LOL.  My mom kept asking "do you want me to take her?  are you sure you don't want me to take her?"  LOL I finally said "you want to hold her, don't you?"  Mom did take her to church the other week, and of course everyone loved her.  mom's already trying to get me to let her take her again LOL

She's getting up only once during the middle of the night to eat, but she makes up for it before then.  Usually between 10 and 12 at night she pigs out and will eat like 6 oz (she normally only eats 2.5-3 oz at a feeding) and then she'll sleep for 5 hours. 

Her brother still adores her.  He likes to hold her hand, or he will lay next to her on her mat and say "hey baby, wassup?" and every night before he goes to bed he gives her a kiss too, not just us.  He says "want my baby kiss!"

Speaking of Brendan, I just have to tell you the funniest story about him.  He watches "Go Diego, Go" on Nick Jr. a lot, he loves that show.  Well the other day this is the conversation he and I had:

Brendan: "I gotta go climb the mountain" (this came out of nowhere LOL)

Me: "Oh, really?"

"YES!  Let's go!"

"But Brendan, I don't have any rope"

"Where's my suction cups?"  (I was ROTFL at this point, he doesn't even have suction cups ha ha ha)

"I don't know, where are they?"

"in my backpack.  Where's my backpack?"

"it's in the kitchen"

"OK, C-ya!  Love you!"

It was the cutest thing in the world.  My mom said I should get him suction cups, but then I think he would actually try to use them and that would be interesting to explain to the doctor LOL  We're taking him to build-a-bear sometime this week, I think he will love it.
