Jaxson Update 2 weeks old.

He's not two weeks until 3:56am, but close enough. Jaxson is still in the NICU and these last 14 days have been hard. I can not wait for him to come home and to finally meet his sister, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. It's a lot of going back and forth. The hospital is 30 minutes away and I try to go twice a day, trying to finish Halloween orders and spend time with Maddie, it's all hectic. I don't seem to sleep any more. I just cant. I get about 3-4 hours a night, but I'm up thinking about my little man. Jaxson now weighs 5lbs 3oz. WHOOO HOOOO!! He's getting closer and closer to coming home.
Before Jaxson can be released he has to be able to eat out of a bottle 8 times a day. Right now he is at 4 bottles a day and the rest of his feedings are through his feeding tube (that is what is going in his nose).
Babies have to learn how to breath, swallow, and suck at the same time to eat out of a bottle. He is doing good and has it down but they have to slowly increase him so he does not get too stressed out.
His heart rate drops a few times a day but the doctors say he will grow out of it.
Right now I should be 35 weeks pregnant. Seems crazy that he should still be in my belly.
Once he gets home things will calm down and become "NORMAL" again. Then, I hope to start reading all yalls blogs again.... I MISS THEM!
Hope you all are doing great. I've seen some awesome cakes being made by yall and it's making me miss baking and decorating. Keep up the good work :)
