Smiling





CURRENT WEIGHT: 7 LBS, 5.1 OUNCES
ADJUSTED AGE: 7.5 WEEKS

Truman had his first very clear smile at me yesterday. It was great! He smiles a lot out of contentment, but this was the first clearly directed at someone. We can't wait for more.

YAY for Truman smiling - I'm sure it is just the most beautiful thing in the world!

About the bottle issues - I'm sure you have already experimented with different nipples which can make a big difference for the little ones. You can also try using a faster flow nipple since he seems to like breastfeeding when you are at your fullest and the flow is the fastest. I found that when Alena stopped taking a bottle all of a sudden, this was the problem. I got the faster flow nipples and she started taking them again (although now she won't.... ugh, it can be so frustrating at times can't it!)

As for his lazy breastfeeding, you can try breast compression to help the get a faster flow. This also worked for us, so it's worth a try if you haven't already done it!

I'm so glad to be talking about all of these normal first time mom issues! It is just so wonderful! Thanks for all the updates, I love to know and see how Truman is doing! He's soooo cute!

He is getting so big! And he is still so cute! Hope the feeding issues begin to get better soon- they can be frustrating. The new pictures are great. Glad to hear that things are still progressing wonderfully and home life is where it should be- at home- Take care- think of you all often!

These pictures are gorgeous! Keep them coming.

I know you don't know me but I have been following the story from Baby Center and I am amazed at the beauty of Truman and the strength of your family!

Take care of yourselves!

I have a son who is 8 weeks old and was born 7 weeks early... far from as early as your son but what is ironic is that when I read your blog, it is like you are talking about my son. From his size to the feeding issues, to the smile! We JUST got our first real smile too! Their weights go neck and neck. Pretty amazing..

Hi
Your little boy is so cute. Someone emailed me your blog page. I had a preemie born Oct 9th, 2006 in Frisco, Tx. He was 27 weeks and 5 days. Aaron was in the hospital for 81 days and came home 3 days after Christmas. If you would like someone to talk to that knows what you are going through, please feel free to email me at oujennifer78@hotmail.com. Congrats on your little boy coming home!

It was so good to see such "Normal" pictures of Truman. They look so much like recent ones of Ethan--except Ethan's smile is crooked!! It's so exciting to see Truman almost sitting up. I'm amazed at the transformation in Ben and Jason as dads. "Uncle" Ben had no clue how to even talk to our grandkids and now he's wearing a shirt that says "got pupu". I'm so proud of both of them--and of course you moms, too.

Love and Prayers,
Sue Hammons
