Getting Bigger....

Hubby and I just got back from our Saturday morning visit with Peanut. We both commented that it is harder on the weekends to get to down there. I think part of it is because of the fact that we have to leave the three monkey's. We have to time the visit to not "rip off" time from them. During the week, they leave us, go to school, then we head to the hospital. It's just easier.

WE ARE NOT COMPLAINING!!!! We are making it work. If this is the biggest obstacle we've got right now - we are doing pretty good huh?

Today Peanut weighed (drum role please!!!!!!!)

3 pounds 2.8 ounces!!!!!!

Isn't that amazing!!! He is getting to be such a big boy!!! And he yakked on Hubby today. Way to go!!!

Here he is talking to his daddy.... (fyi- the tee-niy tube coming out of his nose, is his feeding tube, it is taped to his right cheek this week. The tiny tube coming out of his hat on the left side is the feeding tube, we just had it tucked behind his head while Hubby was holding's nothing extra)
See how chubby his cheeks are getting? Just love to smooch on him!!!!!
This was on Thursday - I forgot to post it in a timely fashion....he has grown out of that baa-baa (our word for pacifier) and onto the next size up. Let me tell ya, he can work a baa-baa "jess fine".

And today's secret is......
My playlist. It has a WIDE range of songs styles, because I am all over the board on the music that I like. Hubby swears up and down that I have R-A-D-D, that would be Radio Attention Deficit Disorder. I do love old 80's music, that's probably some of my favorites. The cheesy stuff we listened to in junior high and early high school...loved it. Remember hearing one come on and going "oh that's our song". Chicago songs were realllllllyyyy good for that! Then ya have to have some country for good measure....and of course, I have to have my RDjr.

Amy, he is so adorable! He's gained a lot, well, maybe not a lot but just seeing it go from 2 lbs. to 3 lbs is awesome! I love the music you have on your site! Just know that I'm thinking about you and your family and rooting for the little guy to keeping gaining weight so he can go home soon!
