Dear Xander and Phoebe,
Today is our fourth day blessed as your parents and your fourth day in the NICU. Today you both had such a busy day…!
Phoebe: you had elevated bilirubin levels – it’s normal. So you get to spend your days under a UV light and baby raybands while your liver learns to work. You’ve done a great job regulating your body temperature and your blood sugars. Abba even got to give you your first bath! You loved the warm water on your head and smell so clean!
Xander: you’re officially off IV dextrose and only feeding on milk. Hooray! And while you’re also sporting raybands like your sister and chilling out under UV lights, you continue to show Daddy and Abba your will to grow! Daddy gave you your first bath and while you didn’t like most of it you loved having your hair washed and brushed.
We love you both so much and with each day we fall more and more in love. You are both so special and we love watching your personalities emerge with each passing day.
All our love,
Daddy and Abba
