I can’t believe my sweet baby Bennett was a week old today! The time has been dragging, yet flying. Jon goes home tomorrow, so that sucks. I was really hoping Bennett would be home before he had to leave, but obviously I want him able to eat on his own first. He is still working on perfecting his feedings. We always try breast, bottle, then “gavage” the rest through the feeding tube in his nose. He’s getting much better at taking more, he just gets really tired quickly. They said that’s super-normal with a preemie though. Aside from the feeding, he’s doing amazingly. That’s our last hurdle.
Anyhow, even though he’s in the hospital, I wanted to do a quick photoshoot to capture his precious little face right now, even with his feeding tube—he’s gorgeous anyway! It was tricky since he’s still in the NICU, but I’ll get more when he’s home. He’ll be the most photographed baby ever—seriously! But here are some of the photos I took at the hospital. I just love that sweet little face. =)
