Something Missing

Notice anything missing??



No oxygen!!

They took him off the oxygen yesterday about 1pm. More than 24 hours now and so far so good.

He passed his hearing test. He's getting his vaccinations this weekend. His carseat test is Monday. We're on our way out the door.

We're still working on gaining weight. He did gain an ounce on Thursday night (putting him at 4lb 3.9oz.) He gained ONE GRAM yesterday. Though I'm counting it as more because this was an actual naked weight. No cannula, no leads, nothing. But we'd like to see more.

This weekend is all about getting the house ready for Robbie to come home.

In a fantastic surprise, the crib came in yesterday. I was just about to order a new one the night before but got distracted by Robbie crying and never got back to it. Then yesterday morning the doorbell rang and it was FedEx dropping it off. I had to triple check the box to make sure it was the right one. Score!

So we're down to business getting stuff ready. I'm walking with a spring in my step.

I was due Thursday. I think I would have been doing much the same things if that were still the case. Only now I know he's a boy and lots of things I wouldn't have known before. Absolutely amazing.

TRISH!!! I'm so excited for all of you! Robbie looks SO good - full cheeks, bright eyes & a little bit of chub. :)

Now you and David can get used to your family being all together at home. I'm sure it will be an adjustment, but to know you're all three under one roof must be such a relief and a huge blessing.
