Ryan Update

The little guy and mom are doing well. We are excited mom comes home tomorrow and hope Ryan will follow her shortly. Ryan is down to 4 lbs 2 oz, which isn't low enough yet to concern the doctors....but they will be keeping an eye on it. He ate his first bottle (meal) yesterday, and mommy was lucky enough to feed him (see pics below). Since the first feeding, he has done very well with bottles and they continue to slowly increase the amount per feeding. The docs and nurses are also keeping an eye on his color (jaundice). So far, no tanning booth, but it would suprise them if he needed to work on his tan. He did have 2 heart rate drops overnight but those are the only two he's had and he came out of them on his own fairly quickly. Again, the docs don't seem to be to concern. And now for the pics....

Sign at Charlotte's School on Thursday.

Ryan getting his first bottle (from mommy). A little before this he was wide awake....and of course at meal time he was fast asleep.

Look at all that hair!!


And a smile...

Ready for your close up.

Charlotte was excited that she got a present too. Amy reads her a book she got from Sandy that works with Grandpa at Culligan (cheap plug)!

And lastly, a video...

This is what Ryan Michael thinks of his first poopy diaper. I would have to agree.
