All About Ethan!

Now that they're 12 days old, I thought I'd take a minute and share some info about each baby!

Ethan Bradley

*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!

"Hello world!" Looking all around him

For my first night in my "Big Boy Bucket" I got to wear a hat to help keep me warm!

This is his new crib!
