Ethan's NEWEST Trick!

Check out my little man:

That's right, y'all....Ethan is finally starting to figure out the bottle!!! While I was busy falling off exam tables and getting my scalp split open, Ethan was rocking it out at feeding therapy with Daddy and Mrs. T. So much so, that we decided to try the bottle with him at home a few days later, and he ate like a champ! We've given it to him at least twice a day since then and he really, really likes it. He even does the "I'm-hungry-put-the-bottle-back-in-my-mouth" cry when we take it out. LOVE IT! We're so proud of him and can't wait to see how much progress he'll make.

Now, you may be wondering, "So, can you do away with the feeding pump?" and the answer is not yet. He's only taking about an ounce through the bottle and is currently up to almost 3 ounces at each feeding. Until he can take full feeds by mouth, consistently, the pump will still be around. BUT, I'm so excited that he has made such great gains in only a few days; he is well on his way!

We hope y'all had a great weekend filled with fun, friends, and fireworks! We definitely did, and I'll be posting pictures of Ethan's first 4th of July soon. Stay tuned!

This is such an awesome sight to see.

My phone would not down load the video of 'Got Milk?', but Rick's phone did. I have to tell you, when I watched that video, it was like the grand finally of my fourth of July celebration.

Good job Ethan, you continue to amaze us all. I love you buddy.
