"I love you baby..."

"...and if it's quite alright, I need you baby"

To be fair: it sounds a pleasant enough song. But Mum had clearly got it into her head and sang it to me. And sang it to me. And then she and Dad sang it as a duet. Honestly. You'd think I had nothing better to do.

"You're just too good to be true..."

So today I've been mainly alseep. I thought about waking up when Dad gave me a cuddle but then I literally couldn't be bothered. I have also restarted my desat habit - well it would have been unreasonable to expect me to give it up in just one day. I sometimes just forget to breathe and other times I strain so hard I go quite red in the face. Everyone expects me to poo after this, for some reason. They're obsessed with my poo.
That said, I'm still on 10 hours on nasal cannulae and 2 hours on CPAP. My blood gases were pretty good today.

"Can't take my eyes off you."

"You'd be like heaven to touch..."

I know some of you love numbers - so other numbers include 34 weeks old today(!) - only 6 weeks to go until I'm cooked! I was born 53 days ago. I now weigh 1.975kgs which is 4lbs 5oz. My blog has been read in 31 countries and in every continent (except Antarctica), a total of 34,000 times.

"I wanna hold you so much."

I shall try hard to reward your interest in me by learning new skills. At the moment it's mainly sleeping, digesting, waving my arms about and filling nappies. I'm still practising the smile/wind thing.

"At long last love has arrived..."

2 mins of just breathing air!!
"And I thank God I'm alive."

Love to all,
