Sun Tannin'

Cashed out under the bilirubin light - getting a sweet sun tan.
We just got back from visiting Liam. He is up to 18 mL's for his feedings and keeping it all down and digested. He enjoys his sun tan under the bilirubin light. The nurses are going to check his labs tonight to see when he can come off the light. We did his 8:00 care which included taking his temp, changing his diaper, feeding and weighing him. His weight is going up. Tonight he was 3 lbs 9 oz. We put a pipe in his mouth when he was feeding so he can get the idea that when he sucks he gets fed. The next step will be to try a bottle. If he gets that down, then he can get rid of the tube down his tummy.



In other news, Tim's toe hurts. He won't stop complaining about it. That is all.

Looks like Liam is doing GREAT!!! Mommy and Daddy just have to wait for him to grow now! I know it's hard but just think...no one else gets too see their babies this early(we) you're lucky to see him soooo soon and get to see him grow! :) When Chase was there I always said tooo bad our tummies aren't see through, we all could see our babies grow! It's kinda neat! But hard to wait!! Trust me, it goes by quick. Even though it doesn't seem to be now. Before you know it Liam will be crawling around and Jenni you will be chasing him!
Great to hear all is going well!

I love the little mask he has to wear under the light. Too cute. We're so glad that Liam is doing so well. God is good! Bummer about Tim's toe. We'll pray that heals quickly as well. :-) Reading that comment did make me laugh out loud.

What a sweet picture of him! It is so good to hear that he is gaining weight and progressing! Ella is sitting her with me checking his picture out - she definately thinks he is a cutie! She may be bigger than him now but size doesn't really matter - right Tim? Just kidding! We love you guys and are continuing to pray for you! Jill
