How is Kymani doing in the NICU on 6/24/2017? Find out what she did today with pictures, slideshows, and the info below.
How Is Feeding Going?
If you've been keeping up, you know that Kymani needs to learn how to feed properly without the tube. It's slow going, but that is expected at this stage. Most babies aren't even trying, so the fact that she can latch on and suckle, even just for a few seconds is great. The slideshow below depicts the first tube feeding of the day. Being on the mother's chest during feedings is great in helping to stimulate the baby to breastfeed. So, we try to do this as often as possible.
Speaking of feeding and weight gain, in Rich's words (regarding the daily rounds the doctors do to update each other and the parents): "Quickest Kymani update ever. Last night she gained 60 grams, up to 1610. That's 3 pounds 9 ounces. Only medicine is multivitamins. She's doing great. K bye." It really was that short - and when your NICU baby's updates are that short, that is a very good thing.
Kymani Is Very Good At Sleeping
Kyma ni's Also Good At Being Awake
Just like being asleep is important, so is being awake. It means she is alert, which is also a good thing. Newborns sleep a lot more than they are awake. But they should be awake and active sometimes too. Enjoy the slideshow below.
Nova's Good At Being Awake Too

Lyn Lomasi & Richard Rowell had another little one on June 8, 2017! Her name is Kymani Lyrique. Lyrique is an alternative spelling of Lyric.
Kymani is an East African name, which is traditionally male. But since when do we do anything traditional or follow gender-specific "norms"? Kymani means adventurous traveler. In this family, she will definitely live that traveler legacy. Join us as we recount the adventures leading up to her birth, as well as her life adventures afterward. She was born a preemie, so she definitely started out adventurous - more than we anticipated!
