Isn't he just gorgeous
See how tiny he is, I'm rubbing his leg ....
holding hands with nana ...
I had a lovely visit with Lucas yesterday. My goodness he's growing. I can see the difference from last week. He's starting to full out and he's getting a bit of tummy and he's just looking so gorgeous.
Everyday he seems to be getting a little bit stronger. He's starting to put on weight slowly but steadily. He's having more time breathing on his own. Six hours by himself and then two back in the incubator. Although yesterday he had to go back in a bit sooner as his heart rate went up a bit fast. He calmed down once he was back in though. I reckon he was just too excited because he knew Nana was coming for a visit.
He's 32 weeks now. Weight 1.115 kg. He's just so perfectly formed and adorable, he's just so tiny.
When his Daddy was a baby (5 weeks old) he ended up in hospital too. He had a viral infection and was put on a drip for fluids. His Aunty Sue bought him Mickey Mouse. Mickey Mouse slept with Nick and was dragged around the house for most of his childhood. Unfortunately so was Donald Duck as Matthew wouldn't part with him either. I still remember the time I washed Mickey and Donald and hung them on the line. Matthew screamed at the top of his lungs, and he was loud I tell you, that I had no choice than let him walk around with a soggy Donald for awhile until I could sneak him away again.
So when I saw Mickey Mouse in the shop I knew I had to get him. Oh, and Winnie the Pooh too. But it is Mickey Mouse that now sleeps with Lucas. So what that he' a tad bigger than Lucas. It won't be for long.
Anyhow Janelle's going to forward me some more photos which I'll put on here.
So for now I'll say Ciao ....
