Eating Camp Day 9

This post will be mostly pictures (as requested by a lonely Daddy at home), but I have a few small updates, then we'll get to the pics.

They have changed the drinking thing again! They have no decided to try to slowly do a sippy cup with no stopper and just let it drip into his mouth as long as he tolerates it and work our way up to sucking, etc. He seems to at least accept the cup without jumping back and trying to get away from it. We'll see. That will be the main WORK of this week and then we'll see how we go from there.

His eating volume is great. We'd be ready to drop another bottle from the calorie perspective, but we still need it for the fluids until he gets better at drinking.

Possibly the best news of the day is that we will NOT be here 6 weeks. It will probably be more like 4. I'll know more about it after this week of working on the sippy cup and we'll meet again early next week and make a plan for going home sometime in that 4th week probably. YESSSSSSS!!!

A bit of info I forgot to include in my Dr. appointment info is that when they did the ultrasound the measurements showed it to be approx. 2 lb. 10 oz!!!!!! Without even thinking I said, "thats huge!" when he told me that weight. I am excited about that. Keep growing little one!!

Ok...thats it for boring words.

klp wanted to type daddy an email. He ended up freezing the computer.

When we play on the bed I'll say, "Let's go night night" and he lays down and laughs! He thinks its so funny.
He wanted a taste of my Gushers. Can you tell he's a little gun shy but HAD to take a lick. Note:he will lick ANYTHING he just won't eat it.

Reluctantly sharing with mommy
yummy gushers!

Of course its fun when my mom is here. She brought this fun bath toy from her house and it was lots of fun.

One thing that has NOT been hard since we've been here is getting this boy to sleep. I usually have to keep him awake to finish his bottle before his nap and before bed. He's SOOO worn out.

Speaking of worn out, he's sleeping peacefully in his bed. He's slept pretty good the last few nights. Made it til 5 am in his bed then sleeps with me the last couple of hours. I can handle that!

I sure hope you get to come home early! I'll tell Tom to get busy with the paint job! Hang in there. We are praying for you every night: for Baby Kanyon, Baby Kanyon's mommy, and Baby Kanyon's baby.
