5 pounder

Eric has just blown through his 5 pound milestone and as of 11/14, he is 5 lbs. 7 oz. He is "learning" how to feed from the bottle and the breast but some of the doctors will tell you that you can't really teach a baby how to do this; they will just know how to do it when they are ready and more developed. He does OK with the feedings but he tires out very fast and only sometimes can finish without the gavage (tube) feeding.

His favorite trick to pull on Daddy is to stealth pee when he is getting a diaper change. Look away for one second and he is whizzing all over the place and messing up his preemie outfit. Here is the cute little sailboat shirt and pants that Amy Braun sent him. Thank you Amy!!

Today I took the car down to the CHP for an infant seat install and inspection. The concept of bringing him home just doesn't quite sink in until you strap that seat into the car.
