When one has a baby, there's no going back

Atticus is doing really well. He's been off of the CPAP and breathing on his own all day. The things keeping him in the hospital are the antibiotics he's on and they're also looking for him to breastfeed a little more continuosly before we head out on our own. He is breastfeeding well, andwhile it's kind of frustrating now withCait's uterus contracting still when he sucks and little Atti always falling alseep instead of sucking, we sure things will pick up soon.
We've had one of us there all day, although they kicked us out now for the shift change. We've switched over to the actual NICU as before he was just in the nursery and hope he doesn't have to stay there too long. I left our camera in there, so pictures will be forthcoming.
If anyone feels the urge to stop by the hospital they are welcome, but they have restricted who can see him to four people that we've already chosen, so only window looking is permitted. Up close and personal will have to wait til we get home.

    More pictures! Now that he's off the C-pap, I want some good unobstructed views of that little face. :)

    GORGEOUS baby! You did so well! Yes, those after-birth nursing contractions get worse with each baby, so be forewarned!
