    I wasn't able to weigh my little guy on Sunday because my son came home from the hospital finally and I had a lot of things to set up since he was born much earlier than I expected. I finally had a few minutes to spare monday evening and he has gained 9g this last week. I'm hoping he's going to be over 100g next week. GEDC0719.jpeg

    Congratulations on bringing your son home! He's so cute, and born on Valentine's Day. Happy he didn't have to stay in the hospital any longer.

    And wonderful posts on your baby tort. It's uplifting to see the growth each week. We see so many posts about how badly someone's baby is progressing.

    Your posts are a bit of sunshine...keep them coming!

    Oh, and we like human baby pics too!

    Thank you. He was born Valentine's day. He had to stay under the lights for three days because of jaundice (He was born 5 weeks early) here he is with my daughter and a picture taken right after he was born. View attachment 265309 IMG_20190214_110352.jpeg

    Adorable! But I can't see the pic with his mom. It says I don't have permission to view.

    I didn't post one with his mom yet, I did post one with his sister. Is this the one you can't see? IMG_20190214_122648.jpeg

    She absolutely loves her little brother. She insists on being the person who gives him his bottle about 80% of the time. She used to tell everyone that he was going to be her baby and she was going to keep him in her doll crib.
