Graham wears clothes!

Since the isolette warmer has been turned off (it was! this morning!), our favorite nurse (oh Pam, how we love you, if we had the money we would pay for you to be there 24-7-365 except I know that you would probably not be quite as amazing on a 24-7 schedule) suggested we bring Graham in some clothes to wear. Umm, certainly. Except we had no clothes. And then it was like a postmarked miracle - clothes arrived from Keith and Christine in Rochester! A beautiful little sleeper, which, although you may not be able to see it in the picture above, has a dino on it and also says "dino" on the left-hand side. Joe and I jumped around all morning singing about his "dino suit." So thank you, Keith and Christine and Nate and Sadie! Without you our child would be naked.

The dino suit also came with an adorable little hat; however, this child had absolutely no hope of having a small head and thus, it didn't fit him. Both of his parents have enormous melons. Sorry, Graham! Let us hope that the worst thing we bestow on you is a hard-to-find hat band size.

Graham is up to 4 lbs, 14.5 oz today, which is fantastic. They did have to I&D his little IV site infection pustule on his foot this morning (I&D = incision and drainage) and they are going to keep him on the Keflex for another three days unless the culture comes back with something that the Keflex doesn't cover. Luckily, we weren't there for the I&D as I think it would have scarred us way more than him, and he seems to have suffered no ill effects. He was a champ on the breastfeeding again this morning, and we'll probably start trying to feed him more from the breast and try a bottle or two next week sometime.

Lastly, the Loud Family has been moved. Without us saying anything. Because of Pam. We love her.
