A written update will soon follow. for now, sticks!

Loki has a new posed smile, which is squinting the eyes and pushing the jaw forward. (Here is his old pose.)

See what I mean?

The southern Netherlands celebrates Carnaval, several festive days right before Lent. We live just a bit into this southern, Catholic area. Nurse Margaret from California made him this wonderful outfit:

Hi Kat! It's Rhea from alta bates nicu! I just wanted to say hello and that Loki has grown into such a beautiful boy! I love the pictures of him, especially the Carnaval ones, and that cute little smile he has going on!
Sending good vibes to your family from California!

About Loki Sky

Loki Sky is a special little man. He was a very early micropreemie, weighing only 610 grams (1 lb, 5 oz) after 24 weeks, 3 days gestation, born to an American Father and a Dutch Mother in Berkeley, California on October 18, 2008.

On January 11, 2009, while still in the hospital NICU, his one kidney stopped working. It was repaired after three surgeries. After spending time in three hospitals in three cities, Loki came home on February 17. He struggled with eating, and then stopped in July, leading to 8 days in the hospital, a failure-to-thrive diagnosis, and a NG feeding tube. On October 10, a minor surgery installed a G feeding tube. Another procedure replaced it with a new one, and then again with a Mic-Key button in Jan. 2010.

In August 2010, he and his parents moved to the Netherlands.
