Getting used to life in the NICU

Bennett is loving life in the NICU except for all those scary looking monitors and tubes!

He is keeping up with the 32 weekers and getting stronger each day. He has Jaundice (very common for preemie babies) and gets to sit under warm lights all day. He is going to be tan like mom before we know it. His eyes get a little swollen from the air they are blowing on him in there too :)

It is hard to really do anything through the isolet but we are getting used to changing him and just waiting patiently for him to build up his strength so that he can come out and play. We are hoping we will be able to hold him this weekend.

We are just concentrating on taking steps forward each day and enjoying every second watching him do better.
