My niece Natalie was moved to an open crib at 11 o'clock last night...for those of you who don't know how important that is and why I want to share is because she is 1 step closer to coming home!!!!!

Natalie was born on January 14th, 2013 at 30 weeks & 4 days gestation. At birth she weighed 3lbs 0.6oz and was 16" long. Last week her nurses said she might be ready to come home in 2-3 weeks. She is the only baby on the East wall that is closest to the NICU exit door. Now that she is in an open crib, she has to be able to control her body temperature and eat from her bottles (which she has been doing and she's doing an amazing job!) she will be ready to come home... :)

At 36 weeks & 3 days gestation (6 weeks old) she is 4lbs 7oz and 17.5" long.
