Happy 4-month old

Yesterday Roscoe turned 4 months old. It's hard to believe that he's that old, since he weighed 5lb 9oz yesterday. Alisha spent a good portion of yesterday (from 11:30am to 7pm) sitting with him. Today he had a 2oz weight gain (for a total of 5lb 11oz) which I think was brought on by him being able to relax more in the arms of his mommy. His oxygen levels are still improved, hovering around 21-23%.

While Alisha was there with him she took this video of him being amazed at the mobile. His mind is really working in this one.


  1. What a super cutie!!! Do I see some red hair?

  2. He is getting so big! I've been following along with your story and I'm thrilled he's doing so well! I'm not sure if you're looking for stories of other people who had preemies as well, but this blog is very encouraging and might be a useful resource to you guys?

  3. That's super cute!
    I noticed he's not wearing a oxygen mask or the nasal thing in this...does he stay off of it for a little bit each day now or was this just as they were changing it? (Usually it seems like if there isn't one on him, there is one blowing on him from nearby.)

    Grow, Roscoe, grow!

    1. He stays more stable off of the oxygen mask now, so they will usually leave him off for a minute or two while they change to another mask. Right now they aren't really pushing it until they do the heart echo on Monday.
