I hope you're all not sick of seeing baby pictures, because I can't get enough of this little guy. I find myself staring at him every time we go to the hospital. I don't know if it's just because he's my grandson, but I think he is absolutely cute beyond belief! I love him so much! When he comes home I want to do a real photo shoot of him instead of just hospital snapshots. Mark and I took the motorcycle up to see him last night because it was so nice outside....perfect riding weather. When we check into the NICU we always have to show ID before they let us in. After we got back into his wing the nurse actually asked for ID too. That has never happened. I think maybe she was a caught a little off guard by two people that she hasn't seen before carrying motorcycle helmets walking straight into his little area. In my opinion, I don't really think we are scary looking people...do you? He has different nurses all the time so we kind of teased her about us never seeing her before either, since we are us here nearly everyday. She really was nice and had his best interest at heart, so I can't fault her for being extra careful with his visitors. He got all the way up to 50cc on his feedings, then started spitting up again, so he's back down to 20cc...it's frustrating! I sure hope he gets the hang of this soon.
Coleen came by this morning and picked me up to go with her and the kids to the science center. I took some pictures, but they are still in the camera and I'm too tired to upload them. Some of the area's were pretty fun and some were just so lame and boring. (IMO) We still had a good time together! While I was there I missed a call from Chad. He was very upset and left a message about being discharged because of the mind games and something about them not honoring the contract he signed. I was freaked out and worried sick. Several hours later we were able to actually talk to him and he had a long sit down talk with his drill sergeant, so now he is doing fine and is sticking it out. Whew!!! Gosh, this parenthood is a stressful thing.
