For probably the first time in my life I’ve been giving some thought to them. I’ve a few little goals for Rose in my mind.. just to keep me sane and show me she’s progressing over time. One dearly watched for goal has been for her to reach Daniel’s birth weight.

Today we weighed her and she was 3.81kg!!! Daniel was 3.8 something so we are finally THERE (@149 days no less)!! I feel an amazing sense of relief that this day has come.

Plugging her weight into my weight app today took her to the WHO growth charts vs the Preemie birth chart she was on previously so my app realises what a milestone this is too!! Either that or there’s a 5 month cut off 😉

In other news. It sounds like the sleep team have agreed to leave Rose on high flow for a while, which is brilliant. I think it’s the best ventilation support for her for now. Ideally she wouldn’t need it but as she does I am happy for her to coast along a little on it with the goal that it supports her growth and development.. gives her the energy to suck a little (okay ALOT).
