I had the day off work so I was in charge of taking care of the Bun. Let’s be clear though: Ella is the one who is actually in charge. =)

Ella had a great day. She slept solid through the night and her numbers looked good this morning. She’s still on a liter of O2, and not quite saturating where she was before, but at least she’s going the right direction. Plus, she’s clinically behaving great.

The only time she gave me any grief today was when I went to feed her some apples. Man, she just does NOT want to do it. She started melting down, and it was a “my way or the highway” melt down. She wasn’t in pain at all, it was just total drama. So I bumped up her O2 and let her keep crying it out. After about 5 minutes, I gave her the binky and frog to calm her down. She did, but then I tried again a minute later. Another meltdown. I tried again for another 5 minutes with minimal success.

There were a few times there where I just had to turn my face away and laugh a bit, because she was so playing me. It was all about her getting her way. OH MAN…the fun times ahead we have to look forward to ;-).

I was able to get a couple cute videos of her today. We did have a good time together.

Praise to our Heavenly Father for his continual blessings, provisions, and our sweet Ella Renae!

How completely awesome is it that Little Miss Ella is moving into that appropriate developmental stage of “I am ME, Dad, not you!” And your attitude about it is so cool, too – “Yep, love you sweet Ella, do your thing and we’re still working on these here apples.” Didn’t God create just a bunch of interesting creatures =) Love and blessings as you and Tina navigate this parenthood road. XOXOXO

It is so good to know that Dad really knows how things are. You are great Ella. Good to see you up and holding your head up and making the move on Dad. WOW what a great change

Aww Ella, that is SO you! Little turkey… Yeah Josh, I TOTALLY know what you mean there 😉 Ella is absolutely the one in charge! It stinks that she’s still not tolerating the food by mouth, but it’s still nice to see all of the other things she’s tolerating as compared to 2 or 3 months ago. How great is our God?! Can’t wait to see you guys after this snowy icky drive that I may or may not be able to complete… Love you!

Blueberries on the binky. MMMMMMM I loved the blueberries. Some of that food is not half bad. Some of it was disgusting.
