Four Pounds, No Tube
Hey everybody! It's been quite an exciting couple of days here in the NICU. I'm now having whole meals from the bottle, so they took my feeding tube out this morning. This afternoon I passed my car seat test- I sat in the car seat for a whole hour without any trouble.
And then, tonight, after I ate, they weighed me- and I'm now over four pounds. Yes, that's right, I've doubled in size, since I was born seven weeks ago!
I haven't been given a date yet, but it's looking like Mommy and Daddy are going to bring me home very soon. I'm so excited to go outside, and ride in a car, and finally see my house after all this time.
Anyway, thanks for the well wishes everyone. I can't wait to meet even more of you, once I come home!
PS- Mommy and Daddy went out for Chinese food tonight after they saw me, and this was Daddy's fortune:
