Sweet Sixteen

Today is sweet for a few reasons. On December 16th at 17:35, MVP turned 1 week old! And...drum roll please...MVP was bumped to 16 CC this afternoon with doc's orders to bump him up 1 CC every 6 hrs til he gets to 20 CC, contingent upon him digesting all his milk. (All his milk consists of 1/2 an ounce. He has a little belly).

And to top that off, we got to see MVP without any velcro, tape or wires on his face! Here's my fave one from the hundred or so pics we took of him with naked face because, after seeing our excitement, the nurse quickly warned us that it was temporary and that she'd be inserting his feeding tube again. He's pulled it out about 6 times already.

His super rosy cheeks are from the tape that was just ripped off.
