We are also having quite a few visitors come by this week on the way to Joella's family reunion in Tennessee. We will definitely miss going, but at least we will get to see a few of our relatives over the next week. Josh, Ashley, and Annaliese came by for dinner last night and then drove all night long to Tennessee. Even though they only visited for a few hours, Annaliese did an excellent job showing us how much more work we have to do to make our house baby proof...that girl is an adorable little hurricane!
Just look at that cute face...
She enjoyed giving pets to Mollie (after playing with all of our newspapers of course)...
And Mollie gave Annaliese kisses back...
Mollie and Lucy's doggie cousin Cocoa continues to behave well at our house, but she did give us a scare yesterday morning when she got her head stuck under our fence while going after a bunny. Our neighbor heard Cocoa squealing and helped to rescue her from under the fence picket. Cocoa was not hurt and she is doing fine. In fact, she now has a replacement spot at our house for the wood spool that was left behind in Arizona...
Even though Lucy's barking and Cocoa's whining drive us crazy sometimes, the dogs are getting along very well and Lucy and Cocoa were giving each other licks this weekend.

Sarah continues to do well, but she does still need the CPAP mask and she is limited to just 3 hours on the nasal tube every 12 hours. The nasal tube is much more comfortable for her, but she is still having a few breathing episodes when not on the full CPAP mask. Either Joella and I always try and hold Sarah for the 3 hour session during the day, but her nightly nasal tube session is in the incubator.

This morning the doctor called us and let us know that Sarah would need her first blood transfusion today. The transfusion went well and Joella could tell that Sarah was much less pale this afternoon. When Sarah was born, the doctors told us that she would probably be anemic at some point and that premies often need multiple blood transfusions over the first two months. Sarah has done a good job not needing her first transfusion until she was more than three weeks old. Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy Father's Day this weekend...it was definitely wonderful and one that I will never forget.

Below are a few pictures and a couple of video clips that we have taken over the last week or so. One is of daddy's first diaper change. He did a great job...too bad it was just a wet diaper :) Sorry if some of the pictures are a little fuzzy...we try to take them without the flash so it isn't too bright for her little eyes. We hope you find them as cute as we do...
