One Week Birthday!

We celebrated Finn's one week birthday today! He has also done so well over the past 48 hours! He stayed on cpap most of Monday and all of Tuesday and they took him off Wednesday, because he was progressing so well! Little man has also had quite a few firsts over the last couple days. Last night, his sweet nurse Lori gave him his first bath after she took his IV out. This morning, he took his first bottle and ate most of it! She only had to push the last little bit through his feeding tube. I was able to give him his second, third and fourth bottles and he seems to be getting the hang of it! Most importantly, daddy changed his first diaper ever! It may have taken him 10 minutes and I had to re-tighten the tabs but he's learning : ) We should be moving to the step down unit soon and then hopefully discharged. Once he's discharged, we will still stay in the hotel for a few nights so that we're not jumping right on a plane straight from the hospital. Here are some pictures from the last couple days!

Nonna and Pop came all the way to Kansas to meet Finn!

He is very happy to have that cpap off his sweet little face!

Cannot get enough of these sweet little bear feet!

Once that IV came out, we were able to see his mohawk : )

First bottle from mommy!

I think he likes us : )
