She Did It!!!!
This is what an ex-NICU baby looks like when she takes her entire feed orally. First time! We think she actually took more.
Kevin was in charge of Karsie for a few hours while Michelle was at a baby shower. Karsie was very fussy for a long while. Kevin and Grandma Turner worked very hard to console her. They walked around with her...no success...they changed her diaper...no success...so Kevin stuck his pinky in her mouth and she almost sucked it off! The decision was made to feed her much earlier than her scheduled time as it was the only thing that would calm her down. So she took somewhere between 70-80 mL by mouth. She has been out since then.
