To my antsy pantsy friends, family and followers...AN UPDATE!!
It has been an adventurous, interesting and very VERY sleep deprived 3 days..
and Zach and I have LOVED every minute of it!
Blake is doing well, acting like a newborn which he kinda is- if you use adjusted age anyway! Blake is now 4 and 1/2 months old: 3 1/2 weeks adjusted. He eats, sleeps, poops everywhere I might add!, and pees. Ever since we left Riley's on Tuesday Blake has turned into a piggie- instead of eating 2 ounces every 3-4 hours he is eating about 3-4 ounces every 3 hours. He sleeps through the night- haha just kidding! He sleeps all day and tries to party all night. Actually minus Thursday night Blake has been sleeping well, waking up at 2 and 6 and then wakes up for the day usually at 9. Zach and I are pretty good at tag teamin it- and I actually feel pretty well rested when compared to the loud room at the Ronald McDonald house!
Blake had his first (of many) doctors appointments yesterday with his pediatrician Dr. Weyer. He still doesn't meet any weight or length that meets percentiles but he is gaining and growing that's all that matters! Blake is up to 6lbs 8.5 ounces, and is 19 inches long. Dr. Weyer seemed impressed with how well Blake is doing after all he has been through. He has really great neck control, and is going right along with milestones for his adjusted age. We go back in a few weeks for a weight check, which if blake continues to eat the way he is he will be a chunker before we know it!
Now for what you all have really been wanting...PiCturEs!!!
Just hanging out before his bath time!
He now loves bathtime!!
Aussie so protective...trying to see why Blake is crying.
We went and visited Conor's gravesite (still trying to find the perfect monument headstone for him) yesterday. It was a mix of emotions. It was hard to see Blake beside Conor's gravesite, all I wanted was to have them both side by side- but not in this way. However. as sad as it as, it was also strangely peaceful, and we could feel our little ones presence.
We thanked Conor for watching out for Blake- my boys.
My fighter and My angel...beside each other and always in my heart!
