sunday april, 6

i think it’s safe to say that by the way mommy and daddy already do anything i want that i am wearing the pants in this family.  as you can see by my picture below, they certainly are big pants.  most of the people that come and peek in on me after they have been reading my stories on here say that the pictures don’t do justice to how little i really am.  maybe the pants i had on today will help you.  these are preemie pants made for little guys like me and i could have pulled them up to my chin.  daddy got to hold me again this morning.  he gets me sooo cozy when he holds me.  today i got a little too cozy and had a major episode.  my heart rate dropped to below 60 and my oxygen level was below 40.  when i started to turn bright purple mommy ran and got the nurse and she had to bag me.  after what seemed like forever for mommy and daddy i finally brought my heart rate and oxygen level up.  it was a little scary for all of us.

other than my scary moment this morning, i am right on track.  i weighed 3 lbs 8 oz today.  because my labs came back normal, they think my weight gain is accurate.  i am getting better with trying to feed on my own.  i still can’t do any feedings completely on my own, but i’m getting closer.  i’m also getting closer to getting the top off my house.  mommy and daddy will be very happy for that day.  they sometimes feel like they are looking at one of the exhibits at the zoo when they look at me through the glass.  it’s hard for them to look at me and not be able to be very close.  my duckie says that being with me in my house is WAY better than being at the zoo.

    It is so exciting to hear that Adali’s weight gain is actual “weight” not water weight. :) I can’t wait for the day when you all get to post that she took her first “whole” bottle for you. I know that every little milestone for her is such a great leap in her road to getting big! Have a great evening cheering for the hawks! I am sure that Adali will be so excited for the game. :)
