Go Big Girl!

Ok, so the title of the song for this post always makes me laugh :-)  My BFF (Katie) and I used to listen to this song all the time in high school.  

Lennon has tried to take a bottle once or twice in the last few days.  The nurse said she was not really into it, but that is normal.  But my guess is it won't take long for her to get a taste for it.  She was so alert and eager to eat yesterday that I cannot imagine it will take her long.  She is a true little Huntsinger Girl:  She loves to eat :-)  She is taking 28mL with fortifiers and they have started adding whey protein as well.  That has really helped her take off in the weight gaining!
Lennon was up to 3lbs 1oz!  I don't know which nurse Lori is, but this is what she left on Lennon's isolette:

It really does take a special person to be this good of a nurse!  

Everyone else is doing great!  Van is feeling much better and Collin seems to be doing better too.  Glad to get back on our routine. Van is cracking us up.  Yesterday, we showed him a picture of Lennon and asked if he knew it was his sister and he said, "yes" in his matter-of-fact voice.  Then we asked him if he was going to be nice to her when she came home.  Just as matter-of-factly, he said, "no."  Well, at least he told us the truth, lol.  We will see how it goes in a couple of weeks, hopefully!


  1. ROFL! I just love Van! He will love and protect her for sure. I just know it. What a great nurse. Make sure you let the powers that be there at Rex know how much this meant to you. Love to you all!!!

  2. "For I know the plans I have for you" declares the Lord "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
    I know the Lord has big plans for sweet Lennon. Can't wait to officially meet her! Much love and continued prayers to you all.
