Busy, busy

We are very busy getting ready for Eric's home coming. We have been doing a lot of preparations at home to make sure we are as organzied as possible. We are still not exactly sure of the date, but he could come home as soon as this weekend. I have been spending a lot of time at the hospital trying to learn how to feed him while he is still learning how to coordinate his sucking swallowing and breathing. He is getting better at this, and I think I am. Over the weekend he was sometimes eating as much as 90 cc's in one feeding, which is about 3 ounces.

Eric doesn't wake up hungry very often and most if the time we have to wake him up to eat. Once we wake him up he is reminded his stomach is empty and starts to squirm for it. My mom told me that she too had to wake me up to eat.

Here are some more photos:
