Happy 4 Month Birthday!

Gaines turn 4 months old on Monday, August 24th. Kind of hard to believe isn't it? Amazing how far he has come in 4 months. He has continued to improve over the weekend. He is now being fed by bottle 4 times per day (every other feeding). He does pretty well, probably taking his entire 63 CC bottle at least 2 maybe 3 times per day. He is on 50% oxygen and three liters of flow. There is a possibility tomorrow that the doctor will want to wean Gaines' flow...we'll wait and see. He is also 9 pounds 1 ounce.

I have posted a few pictures below. The first picture is of Gaines when he was one week old. The others are from this weekend. Amazing, isn't it?
