today is 14 weeks for Rhys

Little man is 14 weeks old today. He is weighing in at 4 pounds 14 ounces and he's been so good. His O2 was weaned down to 55% today, which is fantastic for him on CPAP. He got an eye exam today and did very well, only requiring his O2 at 60%. The eye doctor said his eyes look good, but she is going to continue monitoring him until his vessels reach zone 3. Hopefully his good luck with the eyes will continue and we will not have to worry about needing a procedure. Rhys still loves his pacifier, and sucked on it continuously today for nearly 2 hours!

I look at that picture and I think- man, he just looks like my brother, dad, uncle, grandfather, while they are "watching" the game after a big thanksgiving dinner. I realize it's because of his equipment, but he looks like such a MAN there, overstuffed and snoring. It won't be long until he's sawing z's with his daddy after the big game! I can't believe how far he has come. He's around his due date by now, right? I remember the due date being somewhere around the same as little Max. Anyway, considering he had to do his growing outside the womb, he's come so far!
