Water, water, everywhere

Bath photos are included, complete with commentary;

This time, I got involved and was not just the photographer. Julie prepared him in the incubator while I filled the yellow tub with water. Julie was the first to get "acquainted" with the massive dookie he left behind in his diaper. It was so gross...........and no Tucus, there will be no photos of his bowel movements at any time ha ha.
A view from over Nana's shoulder. Giving a premature baby a bath is quite the production. You have to hold them in a very specific way to clean every nook and cranny. Bacteria grows so readily between the folds of a baby's skin that it is imperative to get under the neck, behind the ears, under the arm pits, and under the bean bag..............that one was just for you DC!

After his bath, he smelled MUCH better and so we put him in an outfit that one of our friends got for us. He looked so cute and he loved his outfits.

After dressing and some swaddling, it was time for cuddles................

Nana's turn...............she chatted him up for a while. Story time and prayers were plentiful. She made sure to tell him to eat his veggies and clean his room..........oops, that was me.

Then the "Big Man" got to meet the "Little Man." Papa got a little bit of time that he chose to extol him on the benefits of choosing the putter over the sand wedge from the fringe. Little man listened intently, then fell asleep.

It was a good day.

To update the progress, the doctors have turned the pressure on the nasal prongs down to 2.5 L/m and are continuing to wean him on the way to 0. He is scheduled for immunizations and a couple check ups (cranial ultrasound, echo cardiogram, etc.) so there should be some exciting stuff coming up.

Stay tuned, and have a wonderful day!


  1. Love the new pictures. Nice to see some clothing on the child besides the diaper! He has grown so much just in the week I was gone. Amazing! Everyone looks very happy! It was great to see you the other day Julie, we'll be back at the pool tomorrow so I'll see you then! Hugs and kisses to the Little Guy!
