Day 30

Today was a little glimpse of what it will be like to have Landry at home.  We roomed in together in a hospital room for the day.  It was a great day together because we could be alone without nurses and other NICU parents bumping into us all day.  It was also the first day that he was exclusively breastfed.  I wasn't sure how this would go - if he would be able to latch each time, if he would get enough, if he would get TOO much, etc, etc, but it all worked out just fine.  He is still eating very often - almost every hour - and only for about 5 - 7 minutes each time but I think he is just adjusting to eating as much as he wants and needs.  I even had a friend spoil me today with some delicious Mexican food and great company which made the day even better.  Thanks again Kim!  We are still looking at early next week for bringing our little guy home.  He lost 52 grams last night which isn't a huge amount but he has to show at least a 10 gram gain for two days in a row to come home - along with other criteria.  Can't wait!

We are getting all sorts of cute smiles
from Landry - this one was right before
he drifted off to sleep.
