Miller's growing. He's up to 4 lbs, 13 oz. He's taking all of his feeds on his own (8 per day) and has been since the 15th. Supposedly, this is somewhat surprising for his gestational age (34 weeks, 5 days). Tonight he was very alert and even had some smiles for us. We caught at least one smile on video (above)...right at the end.

We don't want to jinx anything, but it's possible that Miller could come home earlier than we thought. He's eating, breathing, growing, maintaining temp...just needs a little boost of oxygen here and there. We're a little nervous for him to come home early, since they may send him home with oxygen and a monitor. We may never sleep again. We'll see what happens this next week!
As always, we love your comments & emails, and give thanks for all of your prayers.
Love,
Danny & Stephanie
