Getting closer...

As you can imagine, we are ITCHING to get our two boys side by side. We believe Jackson is beginning to notice the absence of his brother - like he is confused why (when awake) there is no warm body close to him. That will be a pretty momentous occasion - observing what they'll do when laid next to one another.
The timeline is becoming clearer and clearer... at this point, we can expect Thurs, Fri, or Sat to be the big day when Duncan is discharged. That is... IF he hits the mark with relearning the bottle again. This morning we had an appointment with the Occupational Therapist, who experimented a bit with Duncan and a bottle. He did OK... just having a tough time swallowing consistently - he's a little sporadic on that (but sucks BEAUTIFULLY!). So, we are practicing with the bottle 2-3 times a day and the tube feeding takes care of the other feedings. It's a slow process, but we have high hopes he "gets it" before this weekend!
Jackson is enjoying his nightly evening walks. Thanks to Scott's buddies at The Wellington School, we even have the luxury of using our new jogging stroller! I haven't gotten a shot of that yet, but I will include it in the next entry.
For now, here are some other good pics!

Grandpa and Duncan
Duncan's little face, all scrunched up and an oversized hat... looking good, nonetheless!
