- She kept her temperature up for a full 24 hours, so they moved the isolette out of her room and the crib is here to stay!
- She took a full bottle for Josh tonight -- she was incredibly alert and did a great job eating all by herself. This morning when I tried to breastfeed her, I was not so lucky. Sister would NOT wake up ... until, of course, we gave up and put her back in the crib.
Here are some pictures of Josh feeding her from last night and tonight:
|Daddy is a natural|
|Eating like a champ|
|In her baby straight-jacket|
|Looking pretty in yellow|
|Want to have a staring contest?|
And, if you thought that seeing the last Harry Potter movie would pass without comment, you were wrong.
Here are my humble musings:
- As Josh and I were sitting in the theater, I was thinking about all our fellow movie-watchers. Everyone silently applauded the selflessness, sacrifice, and courage of the characters, and would surely verbally champion the prospect of doing good in the midst of terrible opposition and even death. But how many Harry Potter fans are actually taking a stand for the virtues they applaud? I have had some visions of Phoenix in later years, fighting for truth in a generation void of gumption, heart, and morality. I pray that she is so surrendured to the will of God, to his goodness and righteousness, that she can't help but follow her moral compass. I imagine her being a champion of virtue in her actions and not just her words. (And I also imagine her with long, flowing dark hair ... but that's irrelevant)
- With that said, one of my favorite parts of the movie was Dumbledore's theory that words are the most powerful magic. As much as I desire Phoenix to be a woman of action, I also pray that she has amazing command of her words, that she would honor and glorify God, and that she would articulatley inspire those around her to know and love Him well.
- Neville was my favorite character this time around. Just sayin'.
