On Wednesday November 10th at 2:50 in the morning Ms. Finley Ann Nichols made her way into the world. She was 6 weeks early, but ready to enter the world. She came out crying and screaming.
Finley is still in the NICU, but is doing extremly well. She is on room air, eating some of her feedings through a bottle, and she has discontinued all medications. Finley is still losing weight and will probably do so for a few more days. As of now she is weighing in at 3lbs 13oz down only 1 ounce since she was born. She will have to stay in her giraffe bed until she is up to 4 pounds. At that time she can maintain her own body temperature and go into a crib.
We pray for things to continue to go well for her, and hopefully she can come home soon. Joci is so excited to bring her home, and Noah doesn't really care. He just misses his mommy. It is a trying time for us going back and forth to visit her, and trying to maintain a "normal" life at home. Shawn and I continue to plug along and take things one day at a time. Please keep Finley in your prayers. We know she can't wait to meet each and everyone of you.
I will try to update this ever couple of days so that you can check in on her progress. Here are some pictures of our newest little princess!
