V Day

Yes, they're really watching TV.

Somehow he worked his arm underneath the tubes.
How he managed this is anyone's guess.

How will anyone ever be able to discipline this child
when he looks so cute? I can hear it now... "But Mom!"

Well, it's done. Rhys received two of his three vaccines today - the 5-in-1 vaccine for diptheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B and polio, as well as the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV). The haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine (Hib) was on back-order so I guess he will get that once it comes in. The needles were tiny and he barely noticed the shots, it definitely hurt us more watching it. Immediately after Cody got to kangaroo, and then he and Rhys enjoyed some bonding time watching football. In case you're asking yourself "is he really watching TV?" the answer is yes. My brilliant other half has the computer rigged to turn on the cable box and watch from his computer. It's pretty nifty.

Other than that nothing super exciting to report. The inspriatory pressure was increased to 20 (up from 17) and all other settings are the same. His O2 has been in the 50s most of the day and he still has his arm board and IV from the blood transfusion. Take a look at the picture of him lying on his tummy... the boy means business. He loves to stretch his arms above his head and somehow he managed to squeeze his arm board under the vent tubes. He is such a worm. He is weighing in at 1480 grams (3 pounds 4 ounces).

I love the new pics!! He's beautiful. And don't worry, when he's acting like his big cousin Jackson Wade, you won't have any problem disciplining him no matter how cute he is! I'm so happy for ya'll! Give him a big kiss for me!! :)
