Welcome Home Apollo! [New Pictures!!!]

Post by nalukaikamahine » Fri Feb 22, 2013 4:09 pm

Apollo and I got home about an hour ago, he's already had his first feeding. Eating well and he seems content. I'm thinking he's closer to 3 weeks old than 4, but age is just a number, right?

Any idea what color he's going to be?

Here he is during his first meal in his new home.



Ugh. I'd really like to add pictures!!! Why won't it let me?

Yay!!! It's a great feeling bringing home your new baby isn't it? Congratulations!

Look forward to hearing more about Apollo and seeing pics when you can post them :)

I know the feeling I look forward to seeing him! How are things going? Is he settling in well? Feeding well? How are you coping?

It's actually going really well. I just added a heating pad under his tub, my heat lamp isn't keeping the temp high enough and he was burning too much energy keeping warm, and I don't want to end up with slow crop :( But, we remedied that situation quickly!

He wasn't eating very well, but I remind myself that this whole hand feeding thing is new to him too, and since he's so young his feed response isn't so great yet. Plus, my dumb butt read the directions wrong and the formula was too cold, so he wasn't interested....funny what a difference just a few degrees make. He ate like a champ tonight, just a little over 10ml, which is about 10% of his body weight

It's awesome, exhausting work but I'm loving every single second of it. Having a baby that's 100% dependent on you for everything is a heady responsibility, but one that I don't take lightly.

I feel like a new mom, I imagine this is what it feels like to have an infant child! Second guessing everything, worrying about cold, worrying if he's eating enough, if he's content, happy, warm? I haven't slept very well since he's been home, every time I fall asleep I have nightmares that Apollo is starving to death and here I was sleeping peacefully! :roll:

But, at the end of the day, he's eating, pooping, sleeping, playing so I'm content :)

Just a few more days and I can add pictures! I can't wait! lol

Here's a quick video of Apollo playing with his food [he had already eaten his fill] and doing some cool birdie yoga moves!

7w2d Today :)

And boy is Apollo in a MOOD! He's acting like a sullen teenager; refusing to step up, attacking the dogs, ignoring commands and attacking his fruit like it owes him money!

Apollo is such a cutey. I'm enjoying the picture progression.

Teenage angst is such a joy!
