This is a great discovery in my book because she tends to spit out her pacifier and then be consumed by The Rage. Of course, I'll be trying to break her of this in a few years, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
In other news, Blaise is gaining weight beautifully, at a rate of nearly an ounce a day, and the nutritionists seem quite pleased with her progress on that front. She's also absorbing at least some of the milk that she's getting from her enteral and oral feedings, which is a good sign in terms of the functionality of her remaining bowel. We'll try to get some more photos up soon so you can see just how much she's growing. She was destined for chubby cheeks (just look at her parents) and they're starting to appear.
