Umm…More Kurt and Maria (With many pictures)

The grandparents left today after a monumental visit in which they mostly worked in Third World conditions (our house) for no wages.  Grandma Marlo stayed for a month, and Grandpa Bob for a week, and together they were a dish washing, laundry doing, house and car maintaining, Kurt feeding/dressing/exercising/amusing dynamic duo.  They are already missed.

Anyway, I owe you a few more pictures of the Wonderbun.  Today we got the go ahead to feed her as much as she wants, and she rewarded us by having a short episode of very slow heart rate.  Apparently this ("bradycardia" is the word) is very common in preemies, and happens most often on an extra full tummy.  Maria's been a bit of a rock star in that she hasn't been pulling stuff like this very often.  She came out of it right away, and there's no need to worry, although I was briefly freaked beyond all reason.

I present Maria Niehaus, with and without feeding tube…

And Kurt Niehaus, the world's most miserable child…

Kurt is especially miserable in the presence of Grandpa Bob, who apparently just needs to sit there with a neutral expression to get my child's complete adoration. Like so:
