Kaden the big boy!

It was an exciting weekend with Kaden! He was switched from cpap to wall prongs (oxygen) and as of today he weighs 3lbs 10 ounces. Almost double his birth weight! We are so excited for the progress he has made! There is no other way to describe it but MIRACLE!
Kaden and his Mom!
Kaden is kind of small for this outfit but he sure looked cute in it today!

Kaden sleeping peacefully with hardly anything on his face! FINALLY...he says "I'm Free at last!" Kaden was switched to only oxygen on Saturday this weekend! What an exciting day that was for our little family! He is getting so big in our standards....It was a very BIG weekend!! :)

another update....

Kaden continues to grow!! He now weighs 3 lbs 8 ozs.  He is on cpap and looking so cute and big these days...Here are some pictures from the last couple of days!

This is my beanie that keeps me company in my incubator.  I am wearing a little outfit my grandma fife and aunt lari gave me.  I am on cpap in this picture and taking a nice nap!
This is a picture of my back.  This is the scar from the incision made from my PDA heart surgery.  It is healing really well!
My mom was holding me the other day and I held her hand for about an hour!  I threw a huge fit when my mom put me back in bed....I just love being held!
I couldn't get this picture to turn....this is my dad holding me like a big boy!  I love him sooo much!!
One of my primary nurses named Heather tried giving me a bottle today....I only drank 3 cc's...It is not easy for me to drink a bottle when I am on cpap and my cleft...I dropped my heart rate but I will learn soon enough!
Mom and my nurse let me hang out with no diaper today for a little bit and I was just sooo cozy! I am finally putting a little chub on my bum!
Don't I look soo cozy!!??

I haven't updated in a really long time so I decided to update while I wait for a fax to go through at the business center in my apartment complex. Life is deffinately still crazy...and the search for a house is still on amide all the madness! I will be having my baby shower next month so I need addresses!!!
This picture was sent to me this morning from Kaden's nurse! She is awesome and sends me cute pictures all the time! You can see the oxygen being blown in the lower part of the picture but this is with his cpap off of his face! Isn't he cute!!!?? I can't believe he has gotten so big! He now weighs THREE POUNDS TWO ONCES!!! can you believe that!? There are still ups and downs...but that is just life in the NICU...that really can't be explained unless you go through it. But we love our son Kaden sooo much!!
