Things are going well. The doctor on Monday said to try and increase her time off the vent if she could tolerate it - and she has. She is doing fantastic. Our goal right now is 3 hours off a day.

And then Valentine’s : I love this picture! It is so good of her beautiful skin! I thought she could try a taste of the candy ring she got from Grandma, but no, she wasn’t interested. It made me chuckle and remember her biological sister’s reaction to candy. One day in the NICU, her family was visiting. One of the nurses took Bella’s sister with her to the vending machine. Let’s face it, a NICU is not that exciting for a 3 year old. When she came back, she had this horrified look on her face and she told her mother that the nurse had bought chemicals (said with the most disgusted tone you can imagine). Bella’s mother likes healthy, natural food – and candy is not on that list. :) So today I smiled at you Bella because you reminded me of your family. They would have been so proud! :)
