Yes, you read that right! Perron is over 4 lbs! Can you believe it?!? He gained 45 grams yesterday. Stephen and I would definitely believe it, because we got to witness his bottle feed last night. He literally sucked down 35 CC's in less than 10 minutes. It was unbelievable! I have a feeling that Stephen and I are going to be eaten out of house and home in the very near future. We are so proud of him. He ate so fast that he didn't even have time to suck down any air because it was impossible to get him to burp. Which speaking of burping....very scary and hilarious at the same time. First of all his face gets BRIGHT red and his little eyes look like they are bugging out of his head! It is scary because it is so easy to pinch off his airway when sitting him up to burp him. The nurse is trying to teach me, but I am still a little hesitant.

He is also up to 4 bottle feeds a day. Every other feed is given by bottle and will hopefully will be increased soon. He also is large enough to move to an open air crib; however, when we talked to his nurse last night, she said they rarely do both at the same time. For instance, they would either up his bottle feeds to every feed and give him a little time to adjust to that and then move him to the crib, or vice versa. I am not sure what they are going to do first.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers! they are definitely being answered!
