What a difference a day makes!!

My sister Tami holding Eric

Eric is up to it again!! Improving all the time. Sunday was the big day for getting moved into a crib. He is maintaining his temperature very well and gaining weight like crazy. Eric now weighs 3lbs. 15oz.. Just one ounce shy of 4 pounds which would mean doubling his birth weight. He finally gets to wear clothes!!! We have been keeping him very stylish! It is so much fun to just be able to walk up and pick him up whenever we want. He also started nursing on Tuesday. It went great in the beginning and then he decided he already got the hang of it so he got bored and kept falling asleep. So then we decided to do bottles to start off. He got to have his first bottle today. He sucked it right down and was begging for more. Tomorrow he will get a bottle for every other feed and I can nurse when I want to also. We are so proud of him. My sister says she is taking all the credit for the milestones!!!!! We whole heartedly agree on this because she was there to watch Jacob so Troy and I could focus on Eric. Tami you are welcome back anytime and we miss you like crazy already. Kisses from the boys!!
