Happy One Month Birthday

Yesterday, we celebrated Joshua's one month birthday. It's gone very quickly which I was not expecting. The NICU made a little sign for him which was fun.

Joshua seemed to treat it like any other day.

But my nieces and nephews made him some signs.

Jerry and I ate cake and a giant doughnut on his behalf.

And as usual we admired his cuteness.

The Little Man's New Clothes

Yesterday the nurses decided that Joshua was big enough for clothes.

Yes, this little outfit is preemie sized.

Yes, we think he is cuter than ever.

Bright Eyed

Lately, Joshua has been very awake when we've been visiting him in the NICU. This is a change from last week. But as the nurse practitioner said, "He's a lot older than he was last week."

He's making lots of progress and is really getting the hang of breathing on his own. So much so that he has had two different machines in two days. Each makes him do a little more work on his own. He's responding really well. And he no longer has the head gear you see in the picture. (He was not a fan.)

Joshua Ivan

Our little boy came a lot earlier than expected weighing in at 1 lb. 15.6 oz. He's growing and getting stronger everyday. We sure love this little guy.
