There are lots of wires and tubes.
I am breathing easier and the chest tube came out (actually I pulled it out, but the doctors agreed it could stay out).
Now Mom and Dad can hold me.
This is fuzzy!
Wait, come back. I liked Fuzzy.
Day 5 - October 13th
I latched on to Mom for her birthday. I can't eat this way yet but I am practicing so I can do it soon.
They took me out of the bubble house and I have a regular crib now.
Day 7 - I'm a week old today!
Mom and me. Look! No feeding tube. I ate from a bottle today. If I keep it up they will let me go home next week!
I slept through my feeding but now I'm awake.
Wait, you have to help me bust out of this place.
Sleep is easier now, I have no more tubes! They say if I can eat all my meals, they will let me go home this week.
Daddy, are you still taking pictures? Can't you see I am trying to sleep?
I like it when I'm being held, especially by my godmother, Leslie.
It's hard to tell when I'm wrapped up in blankets, but I'm still really small.
October 18th - Mom and Dad's anniversary. I decided to give them a present and went home with them today!
Dad changing me while Matt takes my picture. I think these cameras will be a part of my life for a while.
October 21 - Mom and dad wake me up every 2-3 hours to eat. I don't like it, but I wouldn't eat otherwise. I think it is stressing them out.
October 22 - I just had my first doctor's appointment. I am doing very well. I now weigh 5 lb. 2 oz. and measure 19 inches. That is 4 oz in a week and 2 inches since birth. Mom and dad are very happy.
10/24 - You can see that I am happy to be home. Mom and Dad are treating me very well. I'm looking good.
October 28 - I now weigh 5 lb. 10 oz.
October 29 - Today I am three weeks old. I'm growing! Today's big event was my first full meal at the breast. Mom and Dad were so happy, that I did it twice more to show off.
Mom and Dad made me butterfly wings for Halloween when I was in the NICU.
