*Currently weighs about 4 lbs. 2 oz. (was 3 lbs. 15 oz. at birth)
*He graduated on Day 11 out of his Isolette/Incubator and is now in a regular, open air crib! (Or as Brian calls it, "His Big Boy Bucket". :)
* He is maintaining his own body temperature now without assistance!
*Never needed a respirator!
*No longer requires his CPAP mask or oxygen in any form!
*Gets fed through a feeding tube that runs through his nose into his belly.
*Is starting to learn how to breastfeed! (He cracks me up when he attempts to latch on...he falls into what I would call the "licker" category.) He seems the slowest at picking up the whole concept but has already made great progress!
*He is a sleeper! A peaceful, angelic looking sleeper.
*Is very mild tempered and is not very fussy!
*Eats and poops very well!
*Has good hand control and uses his little bitty hands to hold his pacifier! (See pic below)
*Definitely looks like his mama!
