Victory - 1 Week Old

Taylor with Victory
I think this hat is a little big but it's warm.

He is so cute!

Victory is doing well. He is keeping his temperature and gaining weight. On Sunday he was 4 pounds 11 ounces and he is now 4 pounds 13 ounces. That is great news. He is taking the bottle more and no longer needs the cover on his bed to keep the warmth in. In order for him to go home he needs to be able to take enough nourishment from a bottle and keep his body temperature up while still gaining weight. The feeding tube allows him to get the extra calories without burning them doing these two things. Please pray that this will happen soon so that Taylor and Kristen can take this precious blessing home with them. Kristen is still pretty sore but she is coming along. She had her staples removed today so that is a step in the right direction. Please keep her in prayer for a quick recovery.

The blanket Victory has on in the pictures was Kristen's first time crocheting something. She did a great job! Her mama's proud of her!
