New Math!: 902g

Ok. So we better clear one thing up. Turns out 2000g is actually 4lbs 7oz.. NOT 3lbs!

We looked at the conversion chart again today and realized our error… duh. We suck.

In other news. Jade officially broke the 2 pound barrier yesterday! Hooray! She went all the way up to 918g but today she settled back down to 902g… nothing serious… still happily growing and eating and breathing.

She’s been on a little more oxygen lately, somewhere between 30-40%, more than we’d like really but hey, considering her progress how can we complain! As long as she keeps growing and kicking (and filling her diapers) then we’re super happy!

We’ve been getting lots of one on one time with Jade which has been really nice… Theresa has got lots of kangaroo time including today when Jade was all squirmy wirmy.

That’s about it again though. Jade is taking lots of breast milk, she doesn’t know how to swallow yet, so they’re still feeding her through a tiny tube into her stomach… but that’ll probably change in a week or two.

She’s 16 days old today… I can’t believe it!

Oh ya! Last weekend my Dad and Step mom got to come over and visit Theresa and I and Jade. Much fun was had by all and the new Grandpa and Grandma got to see their Grand Daughter! For those who might not know, my Dad is Spanish (born in Spain even!) and in Spanish Yaya and Yayo is Grandma and Grandpa.

Also, when we were looking for names for the baby and found Jade we found out it’s of Spanish origin… didn’t seem quite right to us, and it was a surprise to my Dad too… but it certainly is cool. So, in Spanish, “Jade” would be pronounced “Ha-day”.

Cool huh!

So, I uploaded pictures of (Ha-day) and Yaya and Yayo… hope you enjoy them!
