Baby Joshua Day 9

All went well with Joshua today. We finally broke 3 pounds!! He is 3 lbs .25 oz. He is finally maintaining his own body temp without any real assistance from the isolette. He got to wear a new duck outfit today. Lily Grace picked it out special for Baby Josh.

Joshua Update

Thanks so much to all of you who are praying for Baby Joshua. As you can see, he is doing quite well today. His eyes are open and he is much more alert.
We thought everyone might like to see some pictures of where he hangs out most of the day. These are some pictures of his isolette
or as Daddy calls it, his "Space Shuttle".
Today, his bottle feedings were increased to three per day. As you can see from the before and after feeding pics, it is very hard work for such a little guy to eat.

Wow! It has not been even 30 days and here I am actually blogging again. What better way to start off this blog than to announce the arrival of our latest miracle. Joshua Newman Langford was born on Friday, August 22 at 4:00 pm.

At 34 weeks he weighed in at a whopping 3 lbs 9oz. He seemed so tiny to us since his sisters were born at 37 and 38 weeks and were 9 lbs 6oz and 8 lbs 3 oz. The only real comparison we had was our kitten who still out weighs Baby Joshua by a few ounces.

Joshua now weighs 2 lbs 15.6 oz. He will be able to come home when he weighs between 4 and 5 pounds and is eating well on his own.

Getting Started for Real

Well, I suppose I should add procrastinating to my list of interests. Here I am almost a year later and just now adding pictures and the second post to my blog. All of those changes last year didn't allow for blogging time. Let's try it again!
