October 14, 2012

Today Evan is 5 days old and would be 35 weeks if  he was still in utero. He acts just like a 35 week old baby should. He sleeps a LOT and cries very little. He is learning how to suck, swallow, and breathe all at once. He kinda stinks at eating. But it's okay! He's getting better every day. I keep telling him the sooner he learns to eat the sooner we go home, but he's the boss. I don't have an estimated date of departure. It's up to Evan.

What does Evan do all day?

He sleeps.

Then every 3 hours he repeats this routine:

Check temperature
Change diaper
Try to eat
Fall asleep
Get fed through a tube
Cuddle with mama

Then he goes back to sleep.

The nurse started putting clothes on him today. They're just borrowed from the hospital so they're a little big but cute anyway. He opens his eyes open occasionally but only during his routine--which is not a good time to take pictures, sorry. He was sorta peeking his right eye open during this picture. Maybe we'll get an open-eyed picture next week when he's a little older and less sleepy.


  1. It sounds like you need some clothes for baby Evan.
