Happy 4 Months old!

Joey is 4 months old now:)

Stats

Weight: 11 pounds 12 oz

Height: about 22 1/2"

He loves to blow bubbles, chew on his hands and all his monkey toys!  He is also smiling a lot more but only when smiled at first.

Eating
He is eating about 1/3 of his feed by bottle.  Some days are better than others.  Feeding him using the feeding pump really seems to hurt/bother him and he does much better when we do bolus feeds (feeding quickly using gravity)

Sleeping
Some night he sleeps 3-4 hours at a time; other nights only 20-30 minutes at a time(seriously)

Skin
Is looking better, but like eating that changes from day to day.  The bandages are actually causing more blisters, but not wrapping him is hard because even the smallest amount of friction causes the top layer of his skin to peel off:(  It's a double edge sword sometimes with EBS- DM.

The girls and I took some new pictures of Joey today but Grace "misplaced" my camera so I don't have any 4 month old pictures of Joey, but here is some from last week when he was 3 3/4 months:)
