Holding Veronica

I held Veronica for the first time today and it was wonderful!!  We had some challenges with the CPAP prongs coming out of her nose a few times but overall it went really well.  If she continues to do well, we can expect to hold her for about 30 minutes a day for the next few weeks.  I can't wait to do it again!  I guess I'll have to let Andrew have a turn as well :)



This is when the nurse first handed her to me, before she put the CPAP prongs back in her nose.  It was so great to see her face up close!




Here she is after the "kangarooing", getting settled back into her home away from home.
