Year of the Pig

Piggy. Seriously, this child at 3 days old (adjusted for prematurity) is eating 24 ounces of 22 calorie breastmilk. I'm unsure how much he gets on top of that with the nursing.

I'm not sure what to do with a child that eats... this is totally new to me. William eats at least double what Margaret did at this same size and age. Yet, his growth is nearly identical to hers. All I can figure is that he is using a lot of extra calories with his screaming.

I hope his eating enthusiasm transfers to solids... how nice would that be?

He is such a cutie! Once home from the NICU Hailey was like William and ate like a pro (almost too much because it aggrevated her reflux)!

He is so cute Lisa and I am sure he is building muscle and growing into a very tall body. How cute can one little piggy get.
