I'm seven weeks old today! Last night was also weighing night: I'm now 1.54kg, which is about 3 pounds and 6 ounces (although Mum is convinced that it's more like 3 pounds 7 ounces). My new weight means that milk intake has been raised to 25ml every two hours. Mum is pleased because she's running out of freezer space to keep all the milk she's made so far (the storage situation is so bad that Mum had to eat a whole tub of ice-cream at the weekend in a desperate bid to make some more space). My new intake is slightly more than she generates in the same period, so I should start to catch her up from here on in.

The Doctors are pleased with my breathing, and I've been allowed to progress to two hours on, ten hours off the evil breathing machine. I'm enjoying the freedom. I've also been given a dummy to help me figure out the "find the food" game, but I've yet to see the point of it all. Mum seems determined to make me learn though.

Awww - that was such a nice thing your mum did for you, eating all that ice-cream! That's motherly love for ya! And you - has anyone told you that you are such a babe! (as for the dummy, some babies just don't take to them! My eldest was surgically attached to his but my youngest wouldn't entertain them)
Well, what can I say? I go away for a few days, come back and you've grown, moved to new accommodation, acquired a new wardrobe, changed diet and seem to be well in control of the fight with the breathing machine. I'd be knackered going through half of that.

Wonderful to hear you're doing so well.

All my love as always

nice one will! keep growing!

Hello big boy!

Ice cream necessity for living! Honestly, you are changing daily now and having been away for 3 days feel like I've missed you doing so much - love the new cot - definitely going up in the world - water bed!!!! Glad to see you're almost off the evil breathing machine and doing so well!
Keep up the good work!
great stripey hat - TRinny and Suzanna would love it - seven dwarves meets wee willy winkie - very sweet!
Hello William.. we're all keeping an eye on your progress in the Alderley Edge camp - I think half the village now visit you're web site!!!! Keep up the good work growing and eating.. that bed you're in looks fantastic!!!!
We're checking up everyday so get rid of that nasty breathing machine and get home soon - with lots of love from the Brierleys (and probably half of Alderley Edge too!!!) xx
Hi Will

Love the hat and the new cot! I quite fancy the idea of a warm water bed to sleep on.

I've just printed out all of your blog to show your great-great auntie Doris who can't imagine how small you were - so will's sords is about to hit St Albans too!

Keep on eating and growing

Love Metty and Michael XX
