Jenna and Gavin

On Friday we asked the nurse if she would hold Jenna up to a window and let Gavin peek in at her, she said YES!! I went and got Gavin from the waiting room and told him he could meet Jenna, he was so excited he ran down the hallway so fast! He jumped on Kurt's shoulders and got a good look. He was so happy to meet her- I started to cry! I know what a baby:) It was just so sweat to see his face when he saw her for the first time. Jenna is still trying so hard to eat- she has a different suck pattern and it is hard for her to get the milk out even though she is sucking so hard! We will keep trying and working on getting her home.
