The first picture is Patrick, 7 weeks old, his weight is 1560 grams and the second picture is from 2 weeks ago, he is now just over 5 months and his weight is 4500 gram!
I wrote about Patrick in our Blog from October 24, 2010 (120 gram in 5 days) and in our Blog of November 21, 2010, where we had a 2kg. party for Patrick.
Patrick is the second from triplets, his brother and sister are both twice his size! The mother could not handle the three of them, so Patrick came to live with us for a while. It took 1 month to get him above the 2 kg. but after that he was gaining, steadily. He is still smaller than his brother and sister, but he is a temperamentful child. His mother came to pick him today, she was so happy to see him healthy and smiling. The mother has in total 9 children, it is good that there are some hands at home to help with those three babies. It was for us a joy to hand him back to his family, we hope and pray that Patrick will do well at home. I am sure his brothers and sisters will love him, he is such a cute and handsome little fellow!
On this picture you see Patrick in the middle.
