I know, I know, I have been awful at updating the blog. I hope you can forgive me. Liliana is awesome. She is now 4lbs 15.6oz and on her way to 5lbs. The last few weeks have been very busy and I have had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Lili. She is eating about 60cc's or 2oz every feeding. Guess what, Liliana gets to get out of the hospital on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, if all goes well. I am going to stay at the hospital overnight tomorrow for a trial run of everything. I am so excited. Everything has been so amazing. When I first got here I couldn't imagine having to stay in Texas for two to three months. Now I am about a week or so away from going home to Wisconsin. I have met such amazing people while here and feel as if I have not only friends but family here in Texas. It is going to be hard to leave but happy as well. So much emotion and so little time. I would like to send out a quick list of people who have had a huge part in our journey. I am grateful to everyone for all your prayers and support. If I don't list you here it is simply because I can't list everyone. There have been a huge number of people who have gotten Dan and I through this. Thanks a bunch. So here is the list: God, Guy and Sue, John and Nina, Brad, Jodi and Kailyn, Staci, Adam and Adrienne, Dan and Cynthia, Sarah G., Martine, Rosalind, Erin, Felicia, Genny, Benton, Kathrine, Mamay, Mette, The YaYa's. Thanks for loving us and supporting us through this all.

Today was an awesome day for baby and me. We had fun doing kangaroo care like always and then when it came to bottle feeding time Liliana did great. She ate 16cc's out of her 27cc's and I didn't have the nurses helping me today. It felt good to be able to feed my girl by myself and have her do so well. I am finding that I learn new things everyday. She is also growing very well. She is now up to 3lbs 6oz. She is on her way out the hospital as long as she keeps up the great work. I am a proud Mommy for sure.

Here is another great video of Liliana. She has grown so much. She is now 3lbs 3oz and 16in long. This is the way I will be putting the videos on from now on at least until I get back home. Don't worry about the other videos just the ones with Liliana in them. The other videos are of the family I am staying with and they are their videos. I am the happiest mother I could be to have my baby girl doing so well.
