My, How We Have Grown

It's hard to believe that a credit-card-sized diaper was once really big on this tank. When we brought him home from the hospital at 4 and a half pounds, he was in regular preemie diapers (not any of the micropreemie varieties). We moved quickly up to newborn diapers and this week... we're in size 1!

In other Crew News, we saw the eye doctor this Tuesday and his ROP is lingering. Another check in a month and hopefully it will be completely gone.

In good news, he finally pooped yesterday. He has been super constipated for a week and hasn't pooped since Saturday (and not much then). I took him off his supplemental iron drops over the weekend since I can't think of anything else that I'm able to change. I know it can be normal for some babies to go several days between dirty diapers, but it's not normal for Crew. I was starting to get really concerned, wondering if we were going to end up in the ER with backed up bowels. Fortunately, he came through for me (and himself) yesterday. What a relief.

So I totally had to pull out my check card to visualize that one! Wow! And to think that the NB diapers seem so tiny to me right now (with my scrawny 2 1/2 year old in size 4s). It's just amazing how much he's grown!
