OK, so the nurse today asked if I wanted to try and put Levi to breast during his morning tube feeding. Duh! The little guy's still got alot of learning and growing to do to get really good at it, but he managed to latch on pretty well twice and was VERY interested! He got wide awake and was smacking his lips and rooting like a pro! We're hoping to try for at least one feeding each day (while still getting the tube feeding, since he's only getting a few drops from the breast) until he starts to get a little bigger and better at it. : I remember the first time each of my girls nursed too, but this was just sheer bliss!

OK, so today he actually got a great latch and nursed for real! He was hilarious because I could tell when he started to get milk because his eyes would get wide and he'd look very very surprised for a moment, then start going at it again. Ha ha ha.
