My boys

I know Aiden is little for his age and I wanted to see how much littler so I went and looked up old pictures of Connor and amazed to see there similarities and there differences.

Tube free day

Rare quiet moment

So far Aiden is doing pretty well with the tube out, he does need to get used to it not being there. He's only had it almost all of his young life, all bout one week of it in fact. His body is going to need some time to adjust. At the moment he really doesn't like to be laid on his back he has to be at an angle. I think he's getting heart burn becasue the tube kept everything open and so it needs to get use to it not being there and start closing more! Think the thing he likes the most is not wearing mittens, every time I put them on him he got so mad at me that yes he likes them gone and is grabbing everything he can!

Come on Wednesday!

 So my Aiden is doing very well feeding wise. His Doctor last week said if we can get him to drink 15 ounces a day the feeding tube is being pulled. He has done that since Saturday and the pump has only been on once since Saturday! Made me a very happy Momma. We go in tomorrow for another check up and hopefully then it will be pulled out and we can start working on more regular baby things! Now he will be on a thick liquid diet, he still can not have thin liquids and it may be months if at all that we do another swallow My pediatrician doesn't want us to do another one unless we absolutely need to. He wants to avoid the radiation and since my little guy is doing so well drinking thick liquids then he feels we should just stick with that.

I'll update tomorrow on how the app goes.

3 months!

Stats: As of last Thursday (7th) my little guy was 10 pounds13 ounces, according to cardiology he has been weighed other times but they stated the most weight so taking that one!

Diapers: Still using size 1. Hes my little guy!

Clothes: He still fits in newborn but starting to fit into 0-3 month clothes.

Eating: Still on his feeding tube,  though he is doing better! Yesterday he drank two ounces from a bottle one ounce per two sittings and so far today hes done 2 ounces and I will be trying a bottle on him in a little while.

Ups and downs of a heart baby

Its been a week... to put it mildly. There has  been some good stuff and some not so good stuff. No clogs at least. Well OK it was clogged Monday but I got it unclogged so yay no runs to PCMC. Tuesday Aiden started to drink from a bottle.

Which is the best of news I can say. That was the biggest hurtle to get him through now we just need him to slowly drink from it more and more. He had two doctor appointments this week. the first was a regular weight check, he has one every 2 weeks. he know weighs 10 pounds 10 ounces and so gained 5 ounces in the last two weeks. yes he is gaining weight slowly yes he is almost three months old and still fist into newborn clothes. Do I care no he's my little smiley buddy so its fine. The doctors are not worried about it they say hes gaining weight and that's all that matters! So if there not worried about it I won't be either.
