Today I spent a fantastic day with Ryan. He completely amazes me! I can't believe how far he has come since being born 7 weeks ago at 1 lb. 13 oz. He was 4 lbs. 1.7 oz. last night.

I was able to watch PT feed Ryan his bottle. He's still not doing very well with it, but he is making baby steps and doing a little better each time. He's trying to learn how to suck on the bottle, swallow and then breathe. He doesn't always do each step or in the right order, but he's sure trying.

I then got to hold Ryan for about 2 hours, change his diaper a few times, change his outfit a few times and just spend time with him. His being in the crib really makes a big difference in our contact with him. It was VERY hard for me to leave him today.

The rest of the family is doing well. I have an appointment with my OB just to make sure everything is OK. I do feel like I'm "back to normal". It doesn't feel like I had a baby 7 weeks ago. Mostly Joey and I are tired from middle of the night breast pumping, but we better get used to it because once Ryan is home it's going to be baby crying, changing diapers, etc. (but we can't wait). Joey has his architect license and certificate and is working on several projects. Alec is glad school is almost done - less than 1 month left!!! He is looking forward to having his little brother at home. He really doesn't like the hospital and I don't blame him, either do I.

Please keep Ryan in your prayers. They are working miracles for him.
