Skin to skin cuddles and daddys 1st cuddle
28/10/07 Skyla had a sponge bath today. She loved it. Her hair went all fluffy. She has so much black hair. Got a good look at her eyes today. At the moment they are blue grey. Hope they stay that way. Her milk has been increased to 3mls p/hr and she is absorbing it. Thats daddys girl alright. The told us we could have a cuddle today but this time no pillow. Skin to skin. I was so excited. The nurse said i go first to warm her up then daddy can have a go. It was beautiful. It was the closest i have ever been to her. Its only taken 15days. Sooner than i thought really. She was so peaceful, lying on her tummy on me. Her heart beating against mine. I loved every minute of it. So did she by the look of her. Then came daddys turn. She looked so peaceful with Joe too. It didnt take her long to settle either. I could tell he didnt want to let her go. We took lots of photos of our special moment today. I will upload them next time im home as i have to get back to the hospital soon. I dont like leaving her for too long. Her weight at birth was 1710gms, now she is about 1470gms, so we lost abit of weight. Hopefully once she starts feeding better she will start to stack the weight on. Oh i almost forgot, we did her foot prints today. Couldnt do her hands as they are all taped up at the moment. Hopefully soon though.
