Hey everyone I just wanted to do a quick update..... Porter gets to be moved into an open crib type thing and gets to get out of the incubator. This is going to make is so much easier to get him in and out. Even though I have just learned what to push and what to do to get him in and out. We are excited! He is getting some more calories added to his milk so he can hopefully start gaining a little weight. He weighs around 4 pounds 5 ounces right now so he has lost a little, but every baby always does in the first few days. His bellyruben score was lower today so he doesn't have to get the blue light special. So all he needs to do now is gain some weight and learn how to eat! I get to try feeding him 2 times a shift now. He has done okay. He usually falls to sleep but he has latched on and sucked for a couple minutes so that is good. I think we just need to practice a lot with it and he will learn how to do it. I am so happy with how well he is doing. Thats the news for now.
