10 Weeks 1 Day Old

Carter's still doing great at home! He did decide to pull an all-nighter last night... he wasn't fussy, but didn't want to sleep. He was fine as long as I was holding him...go figure :) We can definitely tell that he is much happier here, and loves all of his new toys which would include his brother and sister. We're starting to get into a routine, and I think that by the end of the week we'll have it all under control. Thank goodness Michael is off from work until next Monday. There's NO WAY I could have done all of this without him. It's hard enough bringing a new baby home, but add monitors, oxygen, g tube stuff on top of that and it gets really overwhelming. I think that we finally figured out what Carter's problem has been with the bottle, so I'm hoping that we're on the right track with that now. He took the most that he's ever taken in one feeding today with 20 cc's. He did that really fast too, and that's close to one third of a whole feeding. Yay Carter! I've started to make his follow-up appts, and most of them are in two weeks. We're going to be traveling back to the hospital quite often for awhile.
