What Joshua has been up to...

So, here's the latest from Joshua. He now weighs 6 lbs 6 oz and measures 18 inches long, and he no longer wears those adorably tiny preemie clothes or diapers. While he is gaining weight wonderfully, he still needs to be able to take a whole bottle with every feed. He's just taking his sweet time with this. His nurses and doctors seem to think he will stay in the hospital for another week... at least. But, we won't know for sure when he will come home until he is strictly bottle-fed or nursed (which is even harder than bottle-feeding) and that dang feeding tube can be taken out.

He is also continuing to get cuter and cuter... as you can see. :)

He's so cute and squishy! One day you will walk in and they will say, "can you bring the car seat in... We think he's ready to go home tomorrow" it's like a light just goes on inside them and they all of the sudden start doing everything they need to do.

I can't believe how big he is!! Those cheeks are starting to hang off his face. I LOVE IT!!! He is adorable. I am gonna have to pull out some pics of Matt when he was a baby to see if he looks like his daddy did. I kind of think he does. It is so exciting. He is so close to coming home. We can't wait for pics of him home in his own crib.

He's such a chunk! That's so exciting that the end is in sight. Hopefully he will come home soon!
