Daily Update - 9 May 2007

Had some questions about Masinja moving. It's a brand new NICU that was just built. It's super awesome compared to what they have now, so this is definitely an upgrade.

Masinja did really well today. He took a bottle at every other feeding, and had no problems. He got his first immunization today, with 2 more shots to follow in the next few days. He tolerated the shot well, and didn't even get a fever.

T.M.M. and I actually gave him a bath tonight. Believe it or not, it was the first time we got to bathe him. His nurse usually does it when she changes his ostomy bag, so most of the time we end up missing it. Tonight we were there at the right time and got to do it ourselves, which was pretty neat. He was very active, and frequently gave us his opinion on how we were doing.

Finally, here are some recent pictures of him from 5 May. Just click the links:

That's all for today.

I LOVE the pics! He definitely looks like an adorable little man! Congrats on being able to bathe him. Isn't parenthood wonderful?! Lots of love to all of you...

He looks so big and plump! The bottle feedings definitely agree with him. Xander HATED to be bathed; we actually ended up showering him kangaroo-style until he got too big and squirmy to do it anymore -- glad to hear your little man is much more cooperative in that department.
