Jacob is still resting peacefully. He is tolerating the milk very well & they are increasing his intake by 3 cc's every 12 hours. The goal is to get him to 36 cc's every 3 hours so that the IV can be removed. He showed more signs of waking up today; yawned a few times for me, made a few peeps & even showed signs of wanting to suck (VERY GOOD NEWS)! By end of day today, he was eating 26 cc's every 3 hours! If all goes well, he'll be off that IV in the next day or so! Keep making progress Jacob!

Amanda met her baby brother today. I believe she was quite excited! She kept repeating, "Baby Brother!", "Baby Jacob", "Handsome Boy". I'd say the introduction went over very well!
