Just wanted to give a quick update. Violet is doing great. She is breathing on her own and the nurses say she is a rock star. She should be done with most of her IV's in a week. The doctor said that she is a bit jaundice which is very common and will probably need to start the lights tomorrow. I just learned that she is in the 75th percentile for her size. I was surprised by that, but maybe she would have been a Brodd baby if she would have a stayed longer?

She is a snuggle bug. We did our first kangaroo-skin to skin last night and she snuggled right in.

Since I know some of you won't be able to resist buying her a little outfit or 2 the NICU nurse recommend that we buy newborn size instead of preemie because once she goes home that size will fit her for a bit longer and she would be just about big enough to fit into them.

After lots of discussion and votes from the nurses we picked Anna for her middle name.

I hope to go home from the hospital either Monday night or Tuesday!
