Growing and Growing

It's amazing how fast our little man grows.  He seems different everyday. Overall, he is doing really well.  He is now 2 lbs and 10 ounces, and four weeks old today!  His HERO score went way up (this means there may be an infection), and they found that he did have a UTI.  The good news is that they caught it very early, and just give him antibiotics for it.  The bad news was that they had to put an IV back in.  They tried his hand and foot first, but had to put it in his head.  :(  Then the original one went bad, so they had to poke him in his head again.  Only four more days with the IV, so I'm really praying it stays good until then.  

He has been getting more and more food, which he is tolerating pretty well.  They have to give it to him over a long period of time because he's had some re-flux. The nurses and everyone agrees that he has such a sweet/sassy personality.  We love him.  He continues to be well known for his very full diapers, and whole lots of snot.  :)  He spit up on me for the first time on Thursday, and as silly as it sounds, it made me happy.

He has been so awake and so much fun this week, so I took tons of videos and pics.  You can tell from the photo on the right what he thinks about this.  :)  I think he has also been practicing his McClain smile, as you can see on the left - no eyes.
