5 months

My ninja bear got a belt upgrade today! Only one more to go!! I didn't really want to wake up to eat so I rolled away from my Mommy.
Here's my fish lips...
Rhys is 5 months old today. He has been taking all his feedings by bottle since Sunday and he's doing well. Between him fighting his stomach pains and his difficulty burping it is sometimes a challenge to get him to take his 2+ ounces, but he's doing it all the same. He's weighing 8 pounds 5+ ounces and is filling out his 0-3 months clothes very nicely. The ninja bear got a belt upgrade to brown today for 8 bottle feeds/day. Only one more to go and that is when we go home!! Speaking of, the doctors are removing the milk fortifier and trying to wean his breathing treatments in preparation for when that happens. Hopefully sooner rather than later, but we're getting there!

Hooray for Rhys! I'm so happy for all of you. I hope your little man gets to go home in time for Christmas.

This is my personal opinion, but he looks a bit like Max when he sleeps. Interesting bit of family resemblance or complete lack of sleep on my part? You be the judge...
