34 wks and 7 wks old


This blog is going to be short because this last week has been pretty uneventful which in our world is a great thing. Andrew is really getting bigger! He weighs over 3.5 lbs. Normally at this point they would have us try to dress him and see if he can maintain his own temperature. If he can then he gets to go into a crib. I'm so excited for that day to come! Unfortunately because of his breathing issues we have to hold off until it is under control. We just have to wait and let him tell us when he is ready to start breathing more independently.

The picture below is from yesterday. We gave him a sponge bath and changed out his feeding tube and tape on his face. It is the first picture except for when he was born that we have without anything on his face. We were very excited to see him!

I hope everyone is having a great week!

    Looks like his cheeks are getting almost chubby!

  2. Oh my gosh, he's so cute! He's almost grinning! :)

    Nate was a typical "whimpy white boy" in the NICU with his breathing, and it was very, very hard to be patient. We finally took him home on O2, which I didn't want to do, but looking back I wish I had done it sooner instead of waiting around the hospital for him to come off oxygen. (Not that that is an option for you right now, but if it ever becomes the only barrier to going home, it's better to bring a baby home with wires than visiting them at the hospital every day.)

  3. He is getting big! How sweet he is :)

  4. I'm just catching up on your blog. I know I started reading it when you were pregnant. Congrats on your sweet Andrew. He is absolutely perfect and beautiful. I'm so happy you had an uneventful week! :) I'm anxious to get to know your family, especially that little boy!
