There were two pieces of exciting news yesterday. First of all, Katie's nurse felt that she was getting big enough to graduate to a big girl crib instead of the little warmer that she has been in since she was born. She has not had any problems maintaining an appropriate temperature so they went for it! She looked so big in her warmer and now she looks so tiny in her great big crib! It also gives her more room to squirm around because she is a real wiggle-bunny.
Also, yesterday morning Michael smiled at her... and she smiled back! We have seen her kind of practice smiling when dreaming before, but this was the first time she smiled when she was awake and in response to something we did. Whenever she was sleeping yesterday, she also smiled a lot more as well. We take this to mean that she is a little more comfortable and content now. It was kind of concerning to only get to see the "mad face" for such a long time. What a relief to get to see some new expressions!
