We have been dying to talk to more families who have gone through the surgeries to get any advice we can. On Sunday night we got a call from a family in Boston. They used Dr. Mulliken, our doctor, and had nothing but wonderful things to say about him, his nurse, and the surgery.
The mom, Karin, said Ivy healed so quickly afterwards. She was feeding on the Haberman within 2 days. YEAH! So encouraging!!!!!

Yesterday Bauer got his first set of shots!! He screamed like crazy, but was very tough. It totally breaks your heart when you hear them crying from pain. He did great the first day, but I think today he was kind of sore and tired. He was a little more fussy than usual.
By the way, he weighs 13 1/2 lbs!!!!! AWESOME!!

Today Bauer met with the Early Steps Services team - (www.cms-kids.com). They are an early intervention system that offers services to infants and toddlers with significant delays or a condition that places them at risk of developmental delay. For us it is probably going to deal more with his speech than anything else. They try to help each child prepare for a successful experience when entering school.

Well, it seems Bauer is going through a growth spurt. We figured this out quickly after last night's feeding. Right now he's anywhere between 4-5 oz. every 3 hours. Last night at about 8:00 he ate 11 oz of formula/breastmilk. He just kept eating and eating and eating. I'm pretty sure that if I would have put a piece of beef jerky in front of him he would have swallowed it whole! :)
