Pediatrician Visit

After Jack's not so stellar performance at the cardiologists yesterday, we had to go in to the pediatrician this afternoon to check his oxygen sats and make sure he was doing okay on the 1/2 liter. Well, on a 1/2 liter he was hovering around 88, so we dropped it down to 1/8 liter for 10 minutes to see what he would do and he stayed around 84. I knew he was in better shape than the 70 they were seeing yesterday. He just hadn't quite recovered from his temper tantrum yet. We go back again on Monday for another check. They also weighed and measured him and he's now 21" and 8 lbs 1 oz. Making good progress. We like growing babies.

Our other good milestone today was that Jack passed his speech therapy. He finally ate without a tantrum in front of the therapist this morning and she said he was doing great and could probably even take more than we were giving him. Unless he starts having problems, she doesn't have to come back and we are officially done with the tube. It's so nice to only have to do basically 2 feedings every 3 hours (pump and bottle feed) rather than 3 (pump, bottle feed, then tube feed).

So like have you been shopping in Teagan's laundry?:)jk It's funny, you just have good taste because after watching that video we have like three of the same outfits and two of the same blankets, good taste or not a lot of options for boys! Hopefully we can get the boys together for a play date real soon!

Good job! You guys are awesome parents, the next one will feel like a breeze! We STILL miss you and can't wait to see him. And I STILL have the outfit for him sitting on my dresser. Maybe tomorrow!? :)
