Amazing 16 1/8 inches long!
As big as she is getting, these pictures above and below lets you realize how small she still is. If you also notice, she likes to face plant even with the tube in place. This is not a good position because she could pull the tube out.
Look at Brinnie's death grip on Mommy.
While on the scale, Daddy is holding her vent tube while Mommy is putting her hat on.
Brinson is really stretching out. She grew from 15 3/4 to 16 1/8 inches. As well as she did well on her height, you would think that would translate to weight as well. It did not, she lost 0.9 oz this to week to 2 lbs 13.5 oz. Preemies sometimes go up and down on their weight. Since she started a new diuretic and she has been dumping.....these things contributed to her lack of weight gain. Hopefully the new formula will work started this past weekend will help her absorb better.
Look at her new digs. Barbara (weekend night primary nurse) made the knitted purple bedding.
