Early Parole for Jellybean?

Jellybean is a week old today. I never imagined I would be writing that on the 6th of January while I was pregnant with him. I have to say - my little boy is amazing and such an overachiever. [Must take after his momma! :) ] {Love you hubby...smooches!} As of 9am this morning he took his first full feed bottle of 1 oz and guzzled it down. It was his 9th or 10th bottle overall. His next task is to take 7 more bottles at full feeds. He will also go to breast again today to practice for when we get home. Speaking of going home - that may happen as early as tomorrow. Joey is running to the house tonight to pick up his car seat just in case.

His other big thing he needs to be able to do is maintain his temperature outside the incubator. he is moving to a crib today and they will be monitoring him to see how he does. His iv fluids will also be discontinued today and his ng tube is coming out. They originally told me to expect him to be in the hospital until his due date. I guess my little boy had other plans once he got to be held by Mommy and Daddy. He has his hearing test this afternoon and then we wait and see if he can maintain his temperature while taking full feeds. Either way it looks like Sunday would probably be the latest we would get out. Not too shabby for a 35 weeker!

We are hoping and praying that he keeps being the little fighter he has been all along and that our next update will be written from home! Love you all and so appreciate all the support!
