Little Caleb is doing better but he will have to be in the NICU at least until the end of the week. He removed his feeding tube yesterday (stubborn already) so the nurse tried him with a bottle and he did pretty good. I think later on they tried the bottle again and he was sucking on it so hard that his breathing rate and heart rate got wonky again. So back in with the feeding tube (which he was not happy about).

Here’s a pic of him wearing a hat that I made him and being warmed by a blanket I made his brother.

Now Caleb needs his own blanket! I’ve been waiting for the perfect pattern and I have found it! I will give more info once I figure out what yarn I can use that won’t break the bank.

And as for knitting, I’ve been working on the entrelac scarf when I can! Geoff is in Chicago all week so I’ve turned off his Netflix queue. Now all the movies coming into the house are mine all mine. My ass has a date with the couch tonight and knitting will ensue! Tonight’s Netflix feature will be Season 1 of The L Word.

    Aww, isn’t he precious in that little hat? I’m glad to hear he’s better and asserting his wants (and unwants), but sorry to hear he still has to stick it out in NICU. Happy vibes to get him home soon!
