Baby Paxton

Some of you have been asking how my sister and her new baby have been doing. If you didn't know, my sister Elizabeth had her baby at 25 weeks 6 days gestation, at 2 lbs. 5 oz. He is a fighter and has been getting more and more stable each day. He is now 3 lbs. 2 oz. and taking feedings. He is also on a conventional ventilator now and they are working on weening him off.
Since she has felt comfortable posting about him on her blog, I thought I'd share some of the photos I took on my visit to see her about a month ago.



He is so tiny, the photos don't do it justice. They make him look much bigger than he really is.



He loves being on his tummy the most.

The sweetest thing was when my sister was standing by his isolette and he stretched and reached his little hand up towards her.



It's amazing how his tiny little fingers are so perfect. He already looks just like his daddy and has super blonde hair!

He is a miracle. We are all keeping him in our prayers and hoping that he continues to get bigger and stronger each day.
