Do a happy dance

Maisie loves her piano play mat. It's safe to say that it's hers for now, because when James comes home it will be time to share.

She loves to dance and hit the keys to play different songs. Maisie definitely knows what she's going to play and will change the song if she doesn't like it. Her current favs are "Little Bunny Foo Foo", "Five Little Speckled Frogs" and "This Old Man". Sometimes Maisie will shriek and squeal when she really gets going. Today Maisie was moving so fast she spit up, but at least she was happy about it!

We are also thrilled about James making it to 6 pounds! Today the Developmental Therapist and I came up with a plan to move him to four hour feeds instead of every three, meaning he gets more at a time but less bottles a day. I was surprised to find out this afternoon that they pulled James's feeding tube because the team at PSL thought he was perfectly ready to bottle feed all of his meals. Way to go, James!

I have to also give a huge shout out to the Grandparents, who are doing a great job (and have been for a while) supporting the little dragons and advocating on their behalf when we can't be with them. Currently, everyone is taking a care time and feeding shift with James, watching Maisie during the day while we are at work AND somehow managing their current lives/families/jobs. I feel like we are barely holding things together at times and I don't know what we would do without our amazing support system. We struck family gold. A million thanks to the Grandmas and Grandpas. XOXO
