So we've officially been in the hospital for 4 weeks now! Leighton is hanging on strong at a whopping 3 lbs 12 oz. She is really starting to think that she is a big girl too! She's still doing great, and we're getting pretty used to the hospital set-up. I think we will need to install noises, beeping, and alarms in her room at home. That is all she ever hears! She is so used to all the comotion.. I just hope she will be able to get along ok without them when we finally get to go home!

"Movin On Up"

Well our little peanut is climbing into the big girl world!! She moved out of her incubator and is now in an open crib. It seems crazy that someone so small can just be out in the open, but it is exciting to see her making progress. Leighton is now 3 lbs 8 oz!! She has officially gained an entire pound. It makes such a big difference on her little body. Everything is going great. (fingers crossed!) Thanks to everyone for all of your prayers.

Funny Faces

Leighton is becoming so much more alert when we wake her up now! She looks around making some of the funniest faces. Every time she tries to focus on something she goes cross-eyed. (Don't worry, the nurses say that's a good thing.) We could watch her make these faces all night.

Daddy and Leila Bo

Leighton loves her time with daddy. Every night they get to cuddle and take a nap together. Davis obviously loves the time too! They both get a chance to catch up on some much needed sleep. It's so sweet how she will settle right down when he's holding her. She can tell when Davis or I are close by.

"Our Little Angel"

Our little miracle, Leigthton Bolynn Snow, was born on June 29th at 2:23 AM at MckayDee Hospital in Ogden, UT. She weighed in at a whopping 2 lbs. 7 oz!!! That's right, she definitely is our little miracle. Just to give you an idea of how tiny that is; the pictures show her wearing Davis' wedding ring as her bracelet! I couldn't believe it actually fit. I think pictures make her look bigger than she actually is, but this paints a clear picture of our reality.
Her coming was definitely unexpected. Her due date was not until August 24th! I ended up developing pre-eclampsia, and things went down hill really fast. I ended up needing an emergency c-section and then our angel was born. Our lives our crazy right now; nothing like we had planned, but we couldn't imagine life without her now. All of our time is spent at this hospital holding and staring at our sweet girl.
Thank you to everyone that has had her in their prayers. We really have felt all of the love and blessings that people have been wishing upon us.
