Day 16: Here is what's happening:

Ezri took 5 feeds by bottle today! She is really moving along with this nippling thing - much faster thn anticipated. At this pace, she'll be getting all of her food by mouth in no time and we can finally say goodbye to the horrid NG tube - i.e. that thing sticking out of her nose. Her weight it up at 4 lbs. 11 oz. which seems huge compared to where she started. She's noticeably filling out and developing those signature Bradley cheecks, though looking at Zach's baby pictures, he may have had some influence there as well.

We also went through the sacred rite of passage of the Diaper Blowout. After a day of insignificant bowel movements, Ezri made us proud by bursting through her small diaper and down the leg of one of her new outfits. A thing of beauty it was and apparently worked up an appetite because she ate very well once it all had passed.

Good job Princess! Pooping is a good thing!
