First Video

Here she is, cute as a bug in a rug! Just before we started the camera she folded her arms, then decided to reach and stretch.

Racing Goggles

Audrey's ready to ride. I'm thinking of getting a motorcycle and side car, I just have to convince April first. Looks like Audrey is ready to go. She is slightly jaundiced and has some bruising from the ultra fast delivery so they have her on photo therapy lights. She started eating today. All of her food goes through a tude into her belly, but she loves her pacifier. So I don't think she'll have any trouble eating once the doctors give the OK. The nurse told us tonight that she has started acting hungry every 2 1/2 to 3 hours after feeding.

A few hours old.

Here is a picture of Audrey a couple of hours after birth. She was on a small amount of suplimental oxygen, but that has now been removed. She is breathing room air on her own. She is surprising the doctors with how well she is progressing.

3 Years Old

Logan is getting so big. It's hard to believe he is already 3 years old. Here he is with his very cute cake.

Sleeping Soundly

Ok, it's time to update the blog since I haven't done it in way too long. A couple of months ago I came home from work at about 11:00 PM and could hear someone breathing when I turned on the light. When I went looking I found Logan sound asleep on the stairs. He can sleep anywhere!

Audrey joined the Welch clan this afternoon. She is a very beautiful girl. Born at about 32 weeks, she was a bit early, but is doing relatively well. She has very good color and is breathing on her own with a little bit of supplemental oxygen. She weighed 3 lbs. 2 oz. and is 15 inches long. I have pictures, but I didn't bring the cord to transfer them from the camera so they'll have to go up later. (Give me credit, at least I remembered the camera and laptop!) April is also doing very well and is happy to be off bed rest. Give us a call, we'd love to hear from you all. Our cell phones have to be off in the NICU, but you can call April's room or leave a message on the cell phones and we'll call you back. I'll try to get some pictures up soon.
