It's been a little over a month since I did an update on Finley.  Since then he has gone from 2lbs 11oz to a whopping 5lbs 4oz!  He was moved out of his isolette into an open crib.  He was extubated and is on a high flow nasal cannula requiring about 50% oxygen.  Last Tuesday he got his first bottle and did pretty well!  He has been taking one bottle a day since then.  We are working on breastfeeding.  He's very eager, it's just a little hard for him to get a good latch because his mouth is so small.  He has even started giving us a few smiles!  Things are going pretty well.  I wish he wasn't requiring so much oxygen support, but I can't complain because things are soooo much better than they were a month ago.  Here are a few pics of how he has grown in the past month.
