Day 9 - 6/2/08 - FIRST TOOTH SIGHTED

Weight: The Miracle Porker weighs 9.5 oz (this is a 1.3 oz increase from Saturday!)

Feedings: Every 4 hours

Eaten in last 24 hrs: Approx 86 ml of KMR

Stimulation: Still making progress. We are crossing fingers that he starts to go on his own sometime this week.

We spotted Dudley's first tooth yesterday afternoon. You have to look really hard to see it but it's there just starting to come in.

As Dudley grows, he is not interested in only sleeping and eating. He is starting to get a little more active in that he doesn't want to be in his box but be held and have his tum rubbed. We had a bit of a rough night last night. After his 11:30 feeding he didn't want to go to sleep even though I tried to explain to him that I DID and that I had to be up in 4 hours to do this all over again. He cried for a little and finally went to sleep. Then we did it all again at 3:30AM, except this time instead of scarfing down his formula as he usually does, he wanted to take his time and then he wanted quality time with me. I finally got him quieted down at 4:15AM. Same thing after the 7:30 feeding and this time I really needed him to settle down because I had to leave him to take Mary Beth to work because her car is going to the shop again (I am sure she will post all about it). Finally, he just gave in and slept.

God help me when I can't contain him in a box anymore...I will never sleep again!

Dear Aunt Helen & Dudley Studley,

Did we hear someone say "pork"? Yumm. We'll be right over.

Mama says that we should write and let Dudley know he's doing great. Mama checks his blog and lets us know how he's coming along. Oh, and Mama also told us not to say anything about how Dudley would make a delicious mid-day snack. So, we'll be good and not mention that. For now.

Aunt Helen, you are the best. Thanks for taking care of the greatest mid-day snack ever, even though it means you will survive on 2.4 hours of sleep for the next month.

Wuv & kisses,

Achilles & Milo
