Mommy held me today

My Mom was able to hold me for the first time today. I handled it very well and she was able to hold me for a half an hour. She had to stop because they came in to do an ultrasound on my head.

They did an ultrasound on my head to check to see if there was any bleeding on my brain. That can be a common thing with us preemies. Luckily they didn't find any bleeding on my brain. We are all happy about that.

After the Ultrasound I was pooped. I fell asleep fast. I am still not used to a lot of attention.

I have an IV in my had that is not too comfortable. The Dr's say I am doing well. I started to drink Mommy's milk today. I have a tube in my mouth that goes to my tummy.
