I hung out with Reed all day yesterday while my parents watched Braden. I learned about all of his rules for when he comes home and about his medicines. That is a post within itself! I found a new function on my camera that will only highlight one color and turn everything else black and white so I have been playing around with it. Here is Mr. Reed with his sock hand. He will be wearing this all the time it seems like since he loves his tube! Ryan and I went to dinner by ourselves last night for his birthday then he came and had some time with Reed. Look at little Reed just staring at his daddy!

Notice the sock on his right hand. Reed loves to pull his feeding tube out of his nose!

Look how greasy Reed's hair is in this picture. I gave him a sponge bath and you will notice in later pictures that his hair is now fuzzy. Thanks Rebekah for the mobile you let us borrow. The boys love it! They both just sat in the bed and stared at it for a long time.
They won't take their eyes off the mobile to look at their mom!
Poor Braden just has to go and go! He will be so glad when brother gets home so he won't have to get in the car every day! We are still working on Reed feeding. He has reflux so they started him on some different medicine for this. Dr. Dodd said that this will get better with time and some patience. He will come home with that tube in his nose to help with his feedings. One positive to this is that I will not have to feed him at night and just hook him up to a pump:-) I wonder if I could get one of those for Braden!!! Just kidding!
Here is one of Reed's previous nurses, Deidre. She is hilarious and acts like she is on a constant caffeine kick. We miss her since we have been moved to the 6th floor. Ryan and I have to learn to listen to Reed's stomach to make sure the tube is in the right place. I feel like we could both be nurses when this is all said and done with! Braden loves his Rainforest bouncer. He will just talk to himself and sit in this for a hour straight! Hopefully Reed will love this too when he comes home. Reed is ready to come home!!!!! Hopefully it will not be too much longer...maybe another week.

I cannot forget about posting pictures of Braden!!! He is getting so big. I think he may weight more than Reed now since Reed lost some weight at the end of last week.
"I know that the nurses love Reed but they haven't seen me yet!" "I have big cheeks just like my brother"
"Reed may have big eyes, but I have beautiful light blue eyes!"
" Alright mom, I am done with this photo shoot!"
