4lbs 6oz! Someone's a Big Boy!

Little guy now weighs 4lbs 6oz. We're so proud of how much Sidney's accomplished in the 2 1/2 months since he was born at only 1lb 8oz.

He's off of the high-flow nasal cannula and is staying steady at 28% oxygen. He only has to get down to 21% to be able to start breathing room air. We're almost there! :)

One set back though is Sidney's bottle feeding. He's very eager to eat, but so much so that he ends up holding his breath for long periods of time and eventually passes out. It's so scary for us, especially when we are the ones giving him the bottle. Makes us blame ourselves, thinking we did something wrong to cause him to do this. The doctors have written an order to not push him with the bottle feeding, alas the feeding tube in his nose has to remain. Once he learns to pace himself better and remembers to breathe during his feeding, he'll be that much closer to coming home.

Here are some cute pictures and videos from my visit with him last night and this morning.
