Weight update

Sorry everyone, I have not had enough time to update you on A's progress! Here is some quick news to get up to speed. We had A weighed this week and he is now up to 7 lbs 12.5 ozs! Hooray! He now has cute little chubby cheeks and at the risk of being rude, now has cheeks on the other end too! (Well it takes premie babies longer to get these items than full term babies so it is worth noting :)

We were also fortunate to get an appointment with a pediatrician this week to check on A's leg. Amazingly he fully extended the leg for the first time on Monday and we had the appt on Tuesday. The dr. spent a lot of time working the joints and checking reflexes while we were there but could not say that there was anything visibly wrong from the outside. We are now scheduled to have an ultrasound of the hip done next week to see if there is anything detectable that way. Thanks for all the prayers from our friends as that obviously helped A's progress this week!

That's great news about the leg. That's good sign that it's nothing serious, I would think.

It sounds like Aidan will surpass Zach in weight. Zach was 9lb 11 a week ago.
