Notice Anything?

See anything different about this picture??

This is Crew without his nasal cannula! He will still use it for a little while yet, but we can take it out on occasion because he doesn't really need it most of the time. Mama wanted to gaze upon his face without extra tubes today. I actually just called the hospital and he has been doing so well without it that they have kept it off since I left him a few hours ago. We'll see how long it lasts. He went a whole night without it once and soon we'll be off of it altogether.

He's coming off his thyroid medication today. He's also coming off his seizure medication, keeping fingers crossed on that one. We met with the neonatal dietician this morning to discuss our nutitional options. Hopefully he'll start making some progress there! Grow, baby, grow! You can do this! He's seven weeks old and only 2 and a half pounds! He doesn't look like any of the other 35 weekers in the NICU!
