Day 18

Weekends at the hospital tend to be quiet.  The parking garage is empty (and free) and all of the specialists are at home.  Henry endured poking and prodding only from his parents.  We're working on building his head control through tummy time and upright positions.  Each day gets a little better.

Henry is beginning to crave sucking.  He seems to understand some connection between feeding and sucking, because shortly after feeding, he really wants something in his mouth.  Last evening, he latched on to my finger for over half an hour.  I was beginning to worry about losing a nail.

In addition to Meade's family, we enjoyed visits from friends Warren, Cate, and Andrew as well as Bill and Leoni.  Meade and I took a little break from the hospital to celebrate Wes's 30th birthday observed.  We cannot wait to bring Henry to a family party so that he can meet his cousins and join in the fray.  We will not have to wait long – there is a cookie decorating party next weekend.

Hi,

Ilove these pictures. Henry looks so beautiful and content. I never liked blue and orange until I saw them on the little guy. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Sending you my love, Janis

The look of peace, contentment and love on the faces of Mom, Dad and Baby are precious and wondrous to behold. May you all have a very Merry Christmas. Fondly, Karen
