2/15/2011 70 Days Old

February 15th, 2011

On the 70th day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. There was no crying and thrashing this morning. I woke up to Maya sleeping soundly. Her bed holds her at an incline, and overnight as she sleeps she slides deeper and deeper into her blanket. Her legs curl up to her chest and her feet poke out from the edge of her blanket. That is how I found Maya this morning. Snuggled in tight in a deep sleep. I smiled.

She didn’t make it easy for me to leave though. As I was kissing her goodbye this morning I reached my hand around her back to give her a pat when I noticed her onesie was soaked. Another onesie fell victim to the diaper assasin. I had to wake Erin up to help me change her quickly and hustle off to work.

While I was at work today Maya had a visit from her nurse. The crackle in her lungs sounds the same as it has for the past couple weeks. It hasn’t gotten better, but thankfully it hasn’t gotten worse. She is a resilient little girl.

This evening Grandpa Bob and Grandma Chris came by to see Maya and make us dinner. Maya is now big enough to sit in her bouncy seat while we eat. We set it on the table so we could all eat together. We ate our quesadillas and admired Maya. We are now listening to the Allman Brothers Band and sipping our tea. Maya is calming down from a recent crying session and grandpa is getting some Maya time. We will go to bed early tonight. We are worn out from watching our wildcats eat some chicken last night.
