Day Twenty-two.

Elliot now weighs 7 lbs 5 oz!
I can't believe it! He's gaining weight at an incredible rate, especially considering the fact that he hasn't had even a DROP of milk his entire life. I'm thinking he's going to be a chunker once he actually starts eating.
He pooped again today. Hopefully, his repogle tube will be removed soon.
In case you've been wondering where all of his hats are, well... apparently Aaron and I create babies with TINY heads. Only a couple of his hats even come close to fitting him... and the rest are just GIGANTIC and fall right off.

One of the (three?) hats that fit Elliot. :) Adorable, huh?!

It's hard to believe how high we are on the list now, especially since we started off in the 500's. We are now holding steady at #27, only two spots away from the first page! Wow! We have new readers every day, and each new reader equals more prayers for Elliot and another person who knows about gastroschisis. I couldn't be happier!
