Entering the Heavyweight class

Owen weighed in at 6 pounds 4 ounces on Friday.  Everyone is quite impressed with this growth as he weighed 5 pounds 4 ounces when he was discharged 2 weeks ago.  His scar looks great!  We will post a picture of it with his one month pictures later on this week.  He will be one month old on Wednesday!  Time is already flying by.  I think Sundays are going to be our posting days- when Andy and I are both home.  So those of you checking frequently, I am sorry to have let you down recently.  Maybe with a consistent time set aside we will be able to keep up with it little more.

Owen just finished a feeding and Andy can't help but play 'bobble head' with our son and teach him killer dance moves.  It's pretty funny.  Don't worry, Owen is not being harmed by our humor...  Maybe this is why he is having some acid reflux issues :(  He did have his first spit up and first throw up this week.  Poor guy.  He is feeling much better though.  We are hoping the feeding tube can come out tomorrow when we go to our first cardiologist check up.  In the past 10 days, we have only had to use the tube ONE time and that was the day he spit up- so he was having an off day.  We are very proud of the little guy's progress with the bottle feeding!  He sure is making things easier for us :)  He also is sleeping at night between feedings, which is really helping us get a little more consistent sleep.  YAY!

Andy and I celebrate our 5 year anniversary on Wednesday (also Owen's one month bday).  We couldn't be happier with the new gift that has been added to our lives.  He sure is a little miracle!

Looking forward to posting tubeless pictures next week!


  1. Glad to hear owen is getting that feeding thing donw to a science-also glad he is sleeping well so the both of you can get some rest-I remember those days. Had a surprise 50th birthday party lastnight-godo time-daughter and son put it on-thought you'd like to know I've made another milestone. Tell Owen to keep up the good work and I look forward to blogtime next Sunday.

    Take care

  2. We are so happy to hear about Owen's continued progress. Can't wait to see the new pictures and look forward to reading the posts on Sundays :)
    Happy 1 month bday Owen (Wed) and Happy Anniversary Kris & Andy!!
    - Travis, Colleen, & Tre

  3. I am also so happy to hear the good news. I am sure you will get a great report tomorrow. Such a lucky boy to have two dedicated parents. Take care of yourselves as well as Owen. Can't wait for new pictures. One month old, hard to believe.
    Love you, Linda

  4. I am just now catching up with Owen and Mom ( and Dad) and am so glad to hear everything is going well. Your postings bring back so many memories...Paul was also a peepee-er (I had to learn to keep my mouth shut and not yawn at those mid-night feedings). Angie was a SIDS baby...I had to take blankets and everything out of the bed and just invested in lots of warmer sleepers for the first two years. Back then they had me put her on her tummy... a BIG no-no now. He is GORGEOUS and such a lucky little guy to have such a wonderful Mommy and Daddy. If the Grandmas need a break (I know they never will) just call on me. I have lots of practice and LOVE to spoil!!!
    Love to you all, Gail
