Daddy's turn!

So Elisa has been under the billirubin lights for about 2 days now, but in talking with the nurse practitioner in charge of her care, her numbers are borderline and she feels she will most likely be able to come off the lights. She is still doing excellent, although she did have one instance of brady while we were in the room. But she also corrected herself, so that's good.

Long and short of it is, I was able to change her diaper and give her a quick sponge bath. And then, it was Andrew's turn to hold her! After a few initial moments of wait, who are you, and her looking up at him, she calmed down. She recognized him at this point, and settled down to sleep. I was able to give her a little food in her feeding tube and she's been sleeping ever since. Here's a photo of her recognition:
