He's feeling better

Matthew sitting in his chair today

Matthew had such a good day and night yesterday. He fell asleep like magic at 10 pm (that's early for this little guy) and since we've been trying to get our little guy to gain weight (he's been 15 lbs since Thanksgiving) and now he has a g-button, we're giving him a continuous drip of breastmilk at night to see if we can boost his calories. He, in the past (when he had the tube in his nose) was not tolerating this feeding. Last night he slept like a DREAM!! and woke up VERY hungry at 8 am. I got to sleep for 10 hours straight! He has been delightfully awake all morning, as seen above sitting in his chair and playing with some of his new toys. I plan on doing a post VERY soon (hopefully tomorrow or monday) on the new things that we are using with Matthew , like toys and such. Hopefully they will be helpful to someone else.


Here's Matthew checking out his balloon he got in the hospital from his girlfriend.....er, I mean friend....Cayman

Oh he looks great! I hope the g-button helps him get some rolly-polly arms and legs :)

I'm looking forward to seeing what toys you are using with him. We use a lot of toys that light up and sing but I could use some more creative ideas to help get our Audrey excited and stimulated.

I'm so happy you were able to sleep last night... there's nothing better than a full 10 hours of sleep and I'm sure it was much deserved after the week you've had.

He's an adorable little boy!! I love the smirk!
