April 18, 2010

Charlotte has started gaining weight again! She's up to 13 lbs 14 oz as of today. We believe the improvement to be a combination of her new G-tube and her new feeding schedule. We're now feeding her at a rate of 60 mls/hr every 3 hours. Meaning, she's being fed for 2 hours at a time with an hour break. At night she gets a 4 hour break. She still throws up, but not as frequently and rarely to the point of dry heaving.

She recently started pushing herself up during tummy time and before I knew it I'd taken 40 pictures of her this morning. Here are a few.

I have been following your blog now for a little while.
I also I had a baby girl early.
We were in the hospital for 8 weeks.
We are now home and going good.
Thanks for the updates.

Yea for weight gain! Boo for so much time hooked up to the feed tube, but that will get better.

Keeping you all in my thoughts,

Yay for Charlotte! :)

I love how in the second picture it looks like she's taking it of herself.

Hope all is well!

The second picture with Charlotte is so adorable. It almost looks like she is thinking "okay Dad, give me the camera we have had enough pictures for now :)"

We will talk to you guys soon... only 4 more LOST episodes!!!

Paul, Kelly and the pups.
