2 months | 6 pounds

Hugh is 2 months old today! And weighs 6 lbs 1 oz. That’s over triple his birth weight.

They took him off caffeine today, which had been giving him extra energy to keep breathing. Also starting tomorrow (35 weeks), he’ll have a higher threshold that he’ll be required to maintain his oxygen level at. Fingers crossed that he can do it all.

He’s doing better and better with his feedings. His hair is receding from his forehead. And his neck has grown to be the chubbiest part of his body.

Hugh: What about this is funny? Me: I’m laughing because you’re so cute!
