Yesterday was the beginning of our transition into a calmer baby life.
In the morning, Lumin underwent another EEG, this time fully conscious. She apparently considered the wires a fashionable accessory - see the second picture below.
After the EEG, she got her very first bath. We scrubbed off all her flaky skin. I don't think she liked it very much.
On the other hand, she seemed quite happy afterward. We rubbed her with a nice lotion that made her smell like an herbal tea. Ben dubbed her "Baby Zinger".
Most exciting of all, Lumin was able to try breastfeeding for most of the day! As soon as she is able to breastfeed and gain weight consistently, we can bring her home. She's off to a good start so far.
This morning, we dressed her in her very first onesie. Oh my goodness.
