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 success...they changed her 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.


  1. Definitely milk drunk!
    Many congratulations Karsie, on you first full oral feeing! You are SUCH a good girl!
    Pretty soon you can get rid of the pump & the tube, if you keep it up!
    Just whenever you are ready of course.

    What are you going to be for Halloween?

    Love, Aunty Jen x

  2. This is a wonderful tale of love which is unfolding in His way as God is the author of His perfect love.
    The three of you make quite the team!!!

  3. That's a milk drunk face if I ever saw one! :)
