2 weeks!

Well as of last night, Riley was officially 2 weeks old. Sorry I haven't posted in a few days, but there really hasn't been much to tell. They've been increasing her feedings a little just about every day, she's up to 18mL 8 times a day now. Also, her feedings are only 60% breast milk now, and 40% SC30(?), which adds quite a bit of calories to her diet. This is intended to help her build energy reserves and help her gain weight. Since reaching her original birth weight, she really hasn't gained much, it fluctuates a few grams each day but nothing significant. They've started laying her on her stomach a little bit, which she seems to enjoy. Her O2 levels still go crazy everytime she is disturbed or handled, so we still haven't been able to hold her.

Pam finally was able to start driving yesterday, which after 5 weeks off I know she really enjoyed. She's glad to have that freedom back, and not have to rely on other people to do anything. Last weekend we got the nursery done, thanks to Pam's mom and her immense creativity. I'll try to post some pics later.

  1. Would love to see pics of the nursery. How is Baxter doing? I'm sure he's glad to have Mama back home.
