Eden Opens Her Eyes!

We had a nice surprise today while visiting Eden. The respiratory therapist came by to help her nurse Natasha suction Eden. They put the top to the Omnibed up and we were able to get a good look at our baby without looking through plastic. She chose the perfect time to open up both of her eyes and look up at us. We talked to her and we like to think that she looked right at her mom and dad. We told her what a good girl she is and how pretty she looks with her eyes open. It was a really awesome moment for both of us and we got some really cute pictures of her looking at us.

I am way late getting here I just found this while doing some micro-preemie research. I remember the day that my little girl opened her eyes, my mother was with me and I was talking to my baby when she opened up her little eyes. I got very excited and startled her and she closed them again, I had to gently talk to her to coax them open again it was one of the most beautiful moments of my life. this just reminded me and I wanted to share.
