My new hat
I think I was about to find a surprise in his diaper after this big smile!
They let us dress him for the first time on Monday. It's hard to find premie clothes! And some of them are still too big for him. He's still in the incubator right now, but we're hoping he can be moved to a crib bed in the next few days. That's one of the first steps in getting released from the NICU. He has to be able to regulate his own body temperature. They've already changed the incubator over to air mode instead of heated, so he's doing a good job of regulating himself already.
You can tell how big this outfit is on him - I had to roll the sleeves twice!
He always has his mouth open like this when he sleeps. :)
The more I look at JR - the more I think he and Hudson look alike as babies.
Here's a picture of Hudson at this age:
Pretty similar, huh??? Hudson is definitely fuller in the face - but that's a given.
He weighed twice as much!
Hudson had dark hair like JR too. I wonder if that means John Robert will have a head full of blond curls by the time he's one?
I took this photo yesterday. My thumb and JR's teeny-tiny arm:
Thank you again for all of your sweet comments, gifts, cards, prayers, etc...
We are truly blessed with wonderful friends and family!
