My Little Burrito

Our little baby burrito with the hiccups!

Since Grey loves to pull out his nasal canula, his nurse decided to roll him up like a burrito on Saturday to restrict his arm/hand movement. This is the first time that he has been swaddled. He didn’t get upset but we weren’t sure if he liked being a burrito. He had a really funny look on his face… almost saying “where the heck are my arms?” Matthew was filming and I was hoping he got some footage of the crunch face. Grey was definitely furrowing his brows and looking confused. Needless to say, I could not stop laughing. He is so cute!

We didn’t gain any weight this weekend but we are going to go up on his calorie intake. So the breast milk will continue to be fortified and hopefully Grey will gain a few ounces this week. Greyson and I enjoyed some kangaroo care this weekend and we shared a special moment when Matthew mentioned that he hadn’t kissed Grey. He gave him the sweetest gentlest kiss. When you wait 45 days to kiss your baby it’s safe to say you appreciate the small things in life.

Oh and some good news to share. Greyson had another echogram on Friday and the results were normal… meaning no PDA at this time. So the ductus arteriosus has closed! Now, I asked the nurse how likely it is for the ductus to open back up and she said “very unlikely.” I couldn’t be happier with these results.

Thank you all so much for thinking of Greyson and keeping him in your prayers.
