God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
(2 Corinthians 1:3b-4, NLT)

Almost there!

Saturday, January 17
Things are still going well! Faith threw up this morning... after they made her drink formula (Alimentum) from a bottle. She's not big on bottles, and apparently she thinks the formula sucks, too. Joanna (our nurse) called the dietician and left a message, since they're not here today, to ask if we can possibly mix the formula with breast milk and see if she takes it better. Otherwise she'll never get the 2 bottles a day they want her to have... (but I'm still not entirely convinced it's 100% necessary, so I wouldn't care if she didn't have it)
At 9:00 tonight, Faith's feeds go up to 39 mL every 3 hours. I've sort of just been feeding her whenever she wants to eat though... it's working and she's not throwing up, so I don't think anyone cares.
Noah's down this weekend, he and Dave have been here since Thursday night. We've been staying in the hospital's sleep rooms at night, since he's not allowed to spend the night in Faith's room. It has worked out well, and he's been really very good all weekend. We realized on Friday that he didn't even have any toys here... he had the rug to drive cars on, but no cars, and otherwise just some coloring stuff and movies. So, since we had to go to Walmart anyway, we made sure to get him some cars while we were there. He tries so hard to be helpful with Faith, and it's really cute. When she cries, he says, "It's ok, baby Faith. Don't cry, baby Faith." And he finds her stuffed animals and pacifiers and brings them to whoever is holding her, and says, "Baby Faith wants this!" and you have to take whatever it is, or he will keep saying it over and over. He even shared one of his new trucks with her.

Passed out on the couch at nap time after watching "Cars"

Awe, Noah is such a great big brother. I love watching my child being empathetic..it makes me feel like I have done something right as a parent. Cars is Lennon's favorite movie too! Lennon and Noah can talk 'cars' next time they see each other.
