7/5/2011 208 Days Old

July 5th, 2011

On the 208th day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. Erin had to work to day so I got up to take care of Maya at 6:00. We are trying to get Maya to go a little longer between feedings so that we don’t have to wake up so early. This morning went well. She was up a few times through the night, but it was not due to hunger. She is still feeling the effects of her vaccinations.

Today was a day for just me and Maya. She did have a visit from her nurse, but that was our only guest. She needed to be held a lot today. All she really wanted to do was sleep, nut when she would wake up she would need some comforting and a back pat. As part of her response to the vaccinations she creates a lot of drool. Which is fine if she is sleeping so that it can drip out of her cheek, but at times she closes her lips so tight that it can’t get out. When she wakes up with a mouthful of saliva she gets ¬†upset. I can tell the at times it gets to the back of her throat and really scares her. She needed to be suctioned a few times today. I hope that soon she will get over her vaccination and we can see more of her beautiful eyes. Until then I hope that she stays asleep as much as she can and rests.
