Morning update (Thursday 12/25)

Just a quick update this morning. We're planning on going in to the NICU in shifts today. The big news is that the nurses have been trying to bottle-feed Max when possible (sometimes he's too sleepy to try to eat). So far the results have been pretty encouraging. Max isn't swallowing everything, but he's not choking on it either. He seems to be getting some milk into his stomach, but is mostly just spitting it out. He put on another 90 grams of weight last night (so for the past few nights that's 100+, 100+, 0, 90+). Head circumference unchanged at 36.0 cm.
