A week with Sylvia

It's been a doozy. We're settling into not so much a routine, but an understanding of how she acts and especially how she eats and sleeps. Her jaundice is improving--there's a fairly distinct line just above her sternum, below which she's a healthy pink color and above which she's still yellow. Having her around is definitely a bright spot, and I'm really glad she's here now. She's attempting to grow a belly, which involves her eating and eating and eating. Perhaps she's got enough Hasterok genes turned on to turn into a bit of a pudge. She's still amazingly flexible--this afternoon she fell asleep with one foot just under her chin. I can't believe that position is comfortable enough to sleep in, but I guess that's probably a position she spent some time in while gestating.
