We moved Thomas to his bassinet last night. Up until now, he has been sleeping with us. It made things much easier when he wakes up in the middle of the night. But, now that we have to get up to make a bottle anyway, we thought we would try to have him sleep in his own bed. He is still in our room (well, in our closet), but now we are not as worried about rolling over on him. Our closet has doors on both sides (it is like a long hallway), so we can close off the doors and make it quiet and cozy for him. Then we use the baby monitor to hear him. Of course, the first night was a little tough because whenever we put him in there, I laid there and listened to the monitor for a while just to make sure he was breathing. I'm sure I will get used to it, but it may take a few days.


We took Thomas for a long walk and then came back here for lunch. After lunch today, Thomas and his mommy took a nap. It was lovely. I have been trying to get some down time every day since I wake up and get going in the morning. I can't seem to stay in bed even though he usually goes back to sleep after the 7:30 feeding. Since I can't seem to go back to sleep, I usually try to get some laundry/dishes/breakfast eating done before he wakes up again.

Thomas has been eating up a storm today. We are still trying to figure out the right amount to feed him. Our pediatrician told us to feed him 2oz of formula at every feeding and then increase if he is taking it and not spitting some of it up. So far, he just eats up to that amount and whenever he eats the entire amount he spits up. It makes for more laundry (if that is possible).

Tomorrow we go back for our weigh in. Please pray that he has been gaining weight. We are hoping he is over 8 lbs now. We will update as soon as we get home.
