Friday was a big day for the little one. He had a cranial ultrasound, a hearing test, and another eye exam. None of these are a trip to the zoo, but the eye exam is the yucky one. We hear he 'passed' his hearing test, but we do not have any formal results on it or the other two tests. We are not terribly worried since we haven't heard from Dr. George (and he only contacts us if there are any changes), and since he has already had an eye exam that showed no major issues.

So far, it doesn't seem like Miller is missing his caffeine much, which is great. We were warned that he may tire out easily and not eat as vigorously. Not a problem for Miller. Like we said, he is a piglet. In fact, he weighs 4 lbs, 15.8oz! The nurses have been telling us that he is doing very well with his feeds, much better than they expect at his gestational age.

At home, we are just about ready for Miller's arrival, which could be as early as ten to fourteen days from now. We are still trying not to get our hopes up but that is almost impossible. Remember, his actual due date is July 26th, so that's the date they tell you he should come home. Dad put his crib together today and refrained from using any four-letter words. We hear this is a feat in itself. He did use the word 'jank' a couple of times, but I don't think that counts.
On Friday Momma picked up his stroller, which his Nonnie & Papa bought for him. Yay! It's pretty snazzy and new to the States, so he will be the envy of all the other babes.
His Grammaw and his Aunties bought his original stroller for him but his Momma is indecisive...long story short, the original stroller became a carseat instead!
That's all for now. We hope everyone is having a safe and happy weekend!
Love to you all,
Danny & Stephanie
