Life after the NICU and March for Babies

It has been a long time since I've posted on here. Most of you have followed Haley's story on her Carepages site. So I will keep this brief. Haley is doing so well. She is now 13 lbs 5 oz! She eats baby cereal and some veggies. She's tried peas, green beans, and carrots so far. She loved them all! She really enjoys eating and is so easy to feed unlike Jacob was. Jacob was an easy kid for most things but eating was always tough. Haley is a good eater, but the rest of the stuff is tough with her. We will be trying sleep training very soon. I'm borrowing a book from a friend and I really hope it works for her. She's been getting much better at night and is only up a 1 or 2 times now ( but still has those nights where she's up ever 2 hours too so nothing is really consistant yet ). Her napping has not been good at all though. I know I need to get her sleeping in her own room in her crib and that will help because Jacob wont wake her up but then she gets scared when she wakes up and no one is around. We'll get it figured out eventually. This weekend was the March for Babies. It was hot but no rain so it was good. We all made it the full 6 miles although some were doubtful. Haley only cried for the last 1/2 mile probably from being hot and hungry. Here are a few pictures from the walk.
