Baby News

Yesterday they put Riley on a different formula. She was put on a formula that was without the rice, a formula that isn't so thick. This experiment failed. Riley likes the rice formula better and can tolerate it more. Bottom line, she is back on her original formula. She will likely lose weight today due to her bad feeding day, but that shouldn't set her back. Rachael is going to her baby-monitor class tomorrow. Rachael requested a monitor for Riley and the doctor granted her wish. We also have been asked to bring in a car seat for little Riley. Car seat time, in NICU circles, is a big deal. It symbolizes home. So the car seat test is coming soon, as is Riley's departure. The doctor will be taking her off the Mestonin as soon as tomorrow. He wants to see how she does off the Mestonin for a few days, and then who knows...maybe we will have her home on Sunday or Monday. Maybe not, but sometime close to then is what we are thinking. Maybe she will sit with me on the couch come Monday night and watch the Browns get their ass whooped.

Big boy Jack had a good day minus a few pukes. He is getting noticeably bigger these days. Fat Man Jack, coming in at 7 lbs 12 ounces (I think). He is big, believe me. He is also longer (taller if he stood up). He was pretty much clear of the dips and dings today and seems like he has stabilized a bit from last week. Keep looking for the corner big guy.

That's about it for now.
