Tonight Charlie tipped the scales at 6 lbs. Both babies have been gaining weight nicely since their feedings have been increased and we are excited to see Charlie reach this milestone. Lily is hurrying to catch up with her brother and hopefully she will hit the 6 lb mark soon. Aside from the weight gain, everything today is status quo. Both babies are doing well and settling in to their new digs. Lily is getting comfy in the special care nursery, and now that his roommate Ethan has gone home Charlie has moved to the isolation room across the hall to share with a cute little girl named Kassie. Charlie is quite the ladies’ man, so this arrangement makes him happy.
The babies enjoyed an afternoon visit from their Uncle John, during which Lily was all alert and wide-eyed and Charlie amused his uncle by chugging his bottle and working on a good poop. Before John came to visit I filled Lily in on the current plot of Gossip Girl – I know she will want to watch it with me when she gets home. She’s that kind of gal. I’m not quite sure which show Charlie and I will watch together – I watch a lot of TV, but Charlie doesn’t strike me as a fan of America’s Next Top Model, Grey’s Anatomy may be a little graphic (and just may reawaken some repressed NICU treatment memories), and we certainly don’t want him following any of the weight loss tips given on the Biggest Loser. I’m thinking Top Chef will be a Charlie/Mommy show – food is always a winner with Charlie!
Lily and her daddy, happy as can be.
Charlie is so happy to be in his mommy's arms that all he can do is sleep.
