Sophia is growing like a 🌺 (6 lbs now!) and doing so well. She’s loving cuddle time with dad. Can’t get enough of her smiles (even though it’s probably gas😂). We are hoping to bring her home this week if everything keeps progressing. Now what in the world are we doing?! 😳 @skipsnes #preemie#5weeksold#31weeker#nicubaby
Pretty cool! What do you think?
"WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) – A new camera in the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is making a difference for parents.
The camera allows families to watch their baby through a live video feed whenever they want. “I delivered in Fond du Lac and he was Flight for Life here [Wauwatosa],” Jillian Rodriguez said. “I was actually in Fond du Lac for about two, three days while he was here.” Rodriguez had an emergency cesarean section at 27 weeks and didn’t get to meet her son Neeson after he was born. But thanks to the Angel Eye camera, she saw him hours later from miles away. “He was born at 4 p.m. and by midnight I was signed into the Angel Eye so I could see him,” she said.
The Angel Eye camera provides a live video feed that allows anyone with the login and password to watch. Right now, 31 of the 75 NICU rooms at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin have the camera. “There’s so many changes that technology is helping us take better care of our babies and this is something that is allowing us to take better care of our families,” Neonatologist Dr. Karey Ehlert said.
The Rodriguez family makes trips from Fond du Lac to see their son but can’t be with him 24/7. “We prop him up on our phone around the family table or if we’re out to eat we’ll put the camera on our phones so we can see him,” Rodriguez said.
For the family, the camera brings comfort to a difficult situation “”It’s nice to be able to call the hospital and see how things are going but it’s a lot more of a relief to see that he’s doing well,” Rodriguez said.
With funding, the hospital hopes to eventually install the camera in all 75 NICU rooms."

🖤What is Journey Tree🖤
@journey.tree was created to bring support and a sense of community to individuals and couples on their various journeys to, in and throughout parenthood. This is done by providing a physical piece - the Journey Tree Bracelet - that represents this community and support network. I always knew that I wanted to help others and bring support to them on their journeys, I just wasn’t quite sure how to do so. After our struggle with infertility and ultimately conceiving with the help of science and In Vitro Fertilization it hit me like a ton of bricks one early morning when the twins were just a few months old. I needed to make gemstone bracelets to be worn to show strength, courage, love and understanding by the wearer. My goal is for others who may be struggling to see someone wearing a bracelet and think to themselves “I am not alone”, and also so that we can start breaking the stigmas behind the “not so pretty” side to becoming parents and families showing that it’s ok to talk about and support ourselves and others through things such as infertility, miscarriage and loss, postpartum depression and anxiety, and much much more.🖤 which of the following bracelets tell the story of your journey?
Journey Tree offers bracelets for the following journeys (link to website in bio- available globally 🌍):

Let’s get thinking, use your imagination, let’s help to bring home to the NICU this year xxx
Day 125: Princess has had a good day today. I just remembered that she doesn't have an eye exam in the morning and I am so freaking happy. I forgot to mention that 2 days ago I was puked on for the first time. I felt like a mom and it felt great! She also was grabbing onto my hair today and it was basically the only thing keeping her from crying earlier. The penguin outfit was supposed to be her going home outfit but someone is starting to get to big for newborn clothes😢. #myprincess#micropreemie#preemie#preemiestrong#nicujourney#23weeker#mymiracle#princessgraciebean
