From Our Visits Today

Daddy got to kangaroo Sidney skin-to-skin today! It wasn't for very long (Sidney was being a little feisty today), but Jeremy sure loved the little bit of time they had together this afternoon. Other than that, Sid's been doing well. He's up to 2lbs 12oz (just shy of 13oz) and has grown to over 14 inches long! His feedings are now being done differently than usual...instead of putting his food in a syringe that a machine feeds to Sidney via a tube over the course of an hour, he's being fed the entire amount by gravity. Meaning, we get to hold the syringe in the air and allow gravity to pull it down into Sid's belly. He's getting his food all at once now instead of gradually. He's doing really well and hasn't had much residuals left, just a trace of milk left in his belly by his next feeding.

He's doing a lot of things that full-term babies do. He's sneezing (triple sneezes just like Daddy), cooing, and the best yet....smiling! His whole face lights up when he smiles...along with mine and Jer's as well. :) He gets cuter and cuter by the day. Soon enough I'll be putting this little boy in "cutest baby" contests. lol

I'll be sure to post some pics tomorrow morning for you all to see. My baby is getting so big! It's so hard to imagine just how small he once was. My, he's come a long way...


  1. love it. did you get to hold him, too, mommy? I'm so happy he's smiling! AND, he is SO CUTE!

  2. You have to get a picture of him smiling....he can't get any more cuter....he is sooooo handsome and adorable....keep up the great work Sid, you are almost 3 lbs. Can't wait to see you again (and your mom and dad)....Big hugs and kisses to you all, but give most of them to my big boy.
    Love ya'
