March 09, 2009

Such a big day today!
So many changes - for the better!

First, Blake thinks that he is big enough for a big boy bed - so somehow - at only 2 lbs. 11 oz. he was moved into an open crib today - and he's been doing great!?!?

Then tonight, at 38 days old, Blake got to try his very first bottle. He did pretty well and took 5-7cc's of his 25 cc's and we gave him the rest through his tube. We will be slowly introducing him to the bottle as the days go on!
Then he experienced another first - an air bubble b/c of the bottle feeding. He did not appreciate this side effect! Good thing Aunt Jill was working and had the secret touch to get it to come up!!

And although these things are SO VERY exciting in Blake's life - one event today pretty much overshadowed them all! To say that my heart was very happy today would be an understatment!

See for yourself...
