Today Brendan got his first real bath. At first he was not to happy with the idea but he warmed up to it and by the end was smiling. It was quick and he smells so good now. He had a good day today, still no bradys. He did have one quick desat while he was eating early in the day. Tonight we ventured out to Target. Brendan gets a lot of looks from passersby they always comment on how small he is. If they only knew how small he was. We had to up how much we are feeding him because 50mls just wasn’t cutting it for him. We are still working on getting him used to sleeping in his crib.

Brendan had a great day today. We took him into Annapolis to run some errands and we had to go to the mall. He did really well in the car and again in his stroller. A lot of people were looking at him and saying how cute he is. No bradys or desats. We got Brendan some special swaddling blankets for him to sleep in his crib. They were recommended by another preemie mom. So far so good with the swaddling blanket …he is fast asleep in his crib.

Today Brendan had one of his busiest and best days yet. We all headed up to Philadelphia for the day for Brendan to meet some of the family. He did really well on the car ride up and back. He got to meet his great grandparents, Great Aunt Geri, Aunt KC, Uncle Drew, Aunt Beth, the Zaleski family, the Eckert family, Mr and Mrs Shay and Mr Landgraf. So he was quite the popular fella. He also got to see his GranMamie, Poparazzi and Uncle Stephen too. No bradys or desats, spit up as usual.

Brendan had another great day today. He had a great night sleeping,probably was worn out from his big trip to Philly. He slept for four hours, got up to eat and back to bed for 3 more hours. Started the day off with our check up at the pediatrician, Dr Ginsburg. I am happy to report that Brendan is up to 4 pounds 13 ounces. He is still gaining 4 ounces a week like he was in the hospital. He is more awake and alert then he has been in weeks past and he is such a happy baby.

Brendan slept for 4 1/2 hours straight last night…woohoo! Brendan got another delivery of gifts today…he is a lucky little boy. Thank you Aunt Ginger he loves his swing. He also had his first trip to the College Park area…he enjoyed it, I guess. Other then that it was a pretty boring day, no alarms….eat, poop, sleep…repeat process.

Brendan had another great night of sleeping for 4 1/2 hours straight. He needed the rest because he had a big day today. We all went up to a different part of Maryland for Brendan to meet some of his cousins and to see some family. Today Brendan met his cousins Dennis, Derrick and Dana, Great Aunt Lorraine, Cassidy, and he got to visit with MomMom, Pop Pop, Aunt Debbie, Uncle Denny, Uncle Dennis and Uncle Matt. He was pretty exhausted by the time we got home. No bradys, no desats….lots of hugs and kisses.

Brendan slept for 5 hours in his crib last night. Today there weren’t any events. He is now up to 2.5 ounces in his bottle for each feeding. His reflux seems to be doing better at certain feedings then others. He got some tummy time today to practice lifting himself and moving his head.
Happy 10 week birthday Brendan!
