New Poll

Rhys is still doing well in his new crib. He is maintaining his temperature and seems to sleep quite a bit, which is great. He is weighing in at 3lb 15.7oz today. Not sure where the partial ounce came from, but that is what his sheet said. His milk is up to 32cc per feeding so we're over one ounce!! Rhys also was extubated again last night. Yes, again, only 4 days after the last time it happened. Needless to say the doctor was not at all happy. And to be honest I am not sure how it happened since he has been swaddled the entire time I've seen him the last few days and hasn't had an opportunity to pull on his tubes. So, when the tube came out they replaced it with a larger tube and he no longer has a leak. If we never mentioned it before Rhys had a huge leak with his last tube size and he sounded like a little squeaker toy. For those not familiar, as the baby grows the airway gets bigger and distance between the tube and the airway increases causing air to leak out. This means that Rhys wasn't getting the pressure support the vent was supposed to give him because some of it was escaping. Not to mention that must cause a tickle in your throat. No wonder he got fussy all the time. Rhys also had his influenza shot today, so he's all caught up on vaccines. Woohoo!

We finally have scanned baby pics of Cody and myself, so we decided to see who everyone else thinks Rhys looks like. Personally, I am mixed. On one hand I think there are times he looks JUST like me, but there are others he is totally looking like his daddy. So, let the poll begin! And, please no chubby baby comments. :o) According to my mother she stuck a bottle in my mouth every time I cried, which by looking at these pictures you'd think was every 10 minutes. Haha.

Definitely Candice. Julian is the one who looked like Cody as a baby. This tells me the mom's genes prevail...

Wow... Candice for sure!!!! (Sorry Cody!) But at the rate he's growing, I'm betting he's gonna take after Cody and the Outlaw guys height-wise and be TALL!

Either way, ya'll made a beautiful baby!

I'm torn. I think I see more Cody. The red hair gets me confused.
