Our little guy has graduated!! As of today Clayton has a new team of nurse practitioners because he is doing so well! He is up to 2 pounds 6 1/2 ounces. He is now taking just breast milk and doesn't have to be on the supplemental nutrition. He is still in his little incubator, but they turned off the temperature controls because he has been able to regulate his own temp. He wore his first little outfit, a blue robe yesterday. Grandpa W called it a kimono! :) Clayton is loving his kangaroo time (skin to skin) with mom and dad. He had a fit last night when mom had to put him back in his bed. He has also been giving us plenty of practice at changing some diapers. Last night Justin was holding him and he decided he would poop right out the side of his diaper and on to Justin's hand! I think Jaxson is feeding him some of these ideas! Clayton celebrated his 1 week birthday yesterday and I can't believe how big he has gotten already. The picture above was early in the week so we will get a new one up so everyone can see how much he has filled out.
Justin and I can't thank everyone enough for all the help, calls, thoughts and prayers. We are so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family. Clayton can't wait to meet everyone!
