Logan is feeling a lot better. He is still a little hoarse but overall he’s doing pretty good. He is smiling again and giggling. I would say overall he still behaves much like a newborn even though he is now 4 months old. He still sleeps 15-18 hours a day, and still needs to eat every hour or two (Yes, even thru the night). He is definitely behind in his physical abilities. He can’t hold his head up for very long and isn’t even remotely close to rolling over, sitting up, or even doing a little push up. It is taking virtually all of his energy to just pump blood thru his body, eat, and breath. He currently weighs 11 pounds which given his circumstances is actually quite good, he is gaining – it is just very slowly.
He is very interested in his hands he is always playing with them.
Logan is also starting to feel uncomfortable. He needs to be constantly soothed. He is in a swing most of the day (a lot of the time he doesn’t even want to be held) and he always needs a pacifier and his blanket. The only people he wants to hold him are his Dad and I because if you don’t hold just right he gets really upset, and actually if he is REALLY upset only I can hold him. Most nights he even sleeps half the night in his swing because if he is laying flat too long he also gets uncomfortable.
We spend most of our time just trying to keep him comfortable.
