LOOK MOM, NO WIRES!!!

Yep that's right, today Maxwell...for the first time ever...was off of his monitors! Ok it was only for our about 3 or 4 minutes, but it was major for us! It was incredible! We actually went outside on the balcony of the ICU and Max had an opportunity to breathe fresh air...again for the FIRST time ever! Then we did a quick tour of the ICU and all the nurses oohed and aahed over sweet lil' Max! Everyone is noticing how much bigger and stronger he is looking! He is now 5 pounds, 4 ounces! Of course he still needed oxygen so Anne (our favorite respiratory therapist) followed along with us and I held the mask up to Max's face...and he did great. He actually was asleep in my arms the entire time, but I'm sure he was loving the adventure!
