I sing that little ditty every time I feed Hope. Her little front legs go straight up and wave to and fro as if kneading from her own momma. It’s so sweet to watch and yet another nature vs. nurture example. Her instinct is to knead at her mommy’s teets to help express more milk. Hope just kneads the air, giving me the sign that she wants more formula from the syringe.

Hope at 9 days old

And I will always take her signs because she has gained even more weight today! She is up to 4 3/4 ounces!!!! Three consecutive days of weight gain! YAHOOOOOO!!!
