4:45 p.m. February 11, 2014. Breathing tube came out. First words were deemed “appropriate” by Dr. Jate: “Finally. Now, would you all get out of my face?” (And in case you can’t tell, she’s smiling in this photo)
8:00 a.m. February 12, 2014. That really is a smile. And a new doll. The gifts seem to arrive hourly. (Thanks, Julie & Chris!) (Again, that’s a smile.)
