:) :)

at today's weigh-in he was 3lbs 11.5oz so if the nurse's scale is close to what the hospital's was, he gained 2 ounces since being home so he is right on schedule with how much they would like him to gain :) yay. she is bringing me a scale to keep here for a couple weeks so i can keep track of his weight myself and just phone it in to her. she will still come for visits but is confident he is doing well with us so thats always a nice bonus. still nerve-wracking, like when i found a big booger in his nose and worried he was getting a cold (will we ever stop worrying?? lol),,, but he seems to be doing great. just a bit too nosey and not getting as much rest in the afternoons as i would like, but as long as he keeps gaining i guess that's ok lol.

YAY!!! That's so great! I barely remember taking my little one home at 3lbs 8oz after 27 days, which we thought was short too! But 15 days is really short! GO Matthew!

Oh he's so gorgeous! Wow he looks like a super healthy 3 lb 10 oz! I'm so happy you had a short NICU stay!

Oh Karrie - He is so handsome!!!
I had forgotten how small they are and we are still small (7pds)!
They do grow so fast - he looks so cute in his little snuggly!

Congrats!
