All About Colton

Colton Samuel
*Currently weighs about 4 lbs. 5 oz. (was 4 lbs. 6 oz at birth)
*Never required a respirator
*No longer requires a CPAP mask or other oxygen source
*No longer requires IV fluids
*Required treatment under the Billirubin lights for about 4 days
*Currently maintains his own body temperature
*Was the first of the "Bunch" to graduate from his isolette/incubator into his "Big Boy Bucket"
*Receives his feedings through his feeding tube, but is also learning to breastfeed! He's doing remarkably well, even with the cleft. Go baby!
*Is the leader of the pack and shows his brother and sister what to do!
*Has a very distinct cry...something like a bird!
*Can produce the stinkiest, greenest surprises in his diaper!!
*Has the most beautiful big eyes and is extremely alert when he's awake!
*Loves to be held...
After our breastfeeding session, we thought we'd just hang out together...I love this little boy...

Keep holding those tiny little bugs! Sam is right, they grow big fast and won't sit still long enough to cuddle. I love all 3 of them! Can't wait to see them (and you) next week. :)
