Bottle Feeding!!

I got here about two hours ago and at about 11:00 the Nurse said I could feed her a bottle!! Hallejuah!!

Funny thing:
She was sleeping when I sat down to feed her, but as soon as I popped the bottle in her mouth and she got a few drops, her eyes popped WIDE open and she sucked the bottle down in about 10 seconds!! Given it was only about 6cc, but she gulped it down so fast!!
It was really cute. As soon as it was gone she passed out and has been sleeping ever since. The nurses were very impressed that she didn't gag or anything but that she just gulped it down, no fuss no problems.
I am so grateful it went so well!! There are many more feeds to go, so pray that they go as well as the first.
Here's some pics of our girl on her 1 month birthday with her first bottle ever!!

Oh, and by the way, Jennifer and Alan came to visit and Jennifer got to hold the baby! (Alan did, too, but he had already gotten to before).
