Out of the box, briefly

Out of the isolette with Mom

Hooray! Amy got to hold Benjamin tonight! Both parties seemed to enjoy it very much. I was able to give him a kiss on his head. We told him stories about what the rest of outside looks like. His visit out with Amy lasted for a little over 30 minutes. Next time we hope it will be longer and we can switch off.

In other news he is now up to 1/2 oz of milk every 3 hours. Got to fatten the boy up!
