I'd have been sent to the sale barn. One and done and he weighed 3# and change! But excellent genetics, very docile ;)

He's over 8 pounds now and doing good. He was pretty thin for a while, but as you can see that's no longer a problem.

very sweet, thanks for the update and glad he's doing well. Tell his folks to watch out this fall/winter for RSV (respiratory syncytial (pronounced sin-sish-ul) virus). http://handtohold.org/resources/helpful ... s-to-know/
It's very common in preemies their first winter and can pack a wallop (from experience).

You're welcome! Glad to hear they have a vaccine for it now. Our little guy went into seizures when he got the virus (he had problems regulating his temp when he got sick. He could go from normal to 104.5 in a couple minutes. I didn't sleep much! Just had the thermometer on him around the clock! :lol:

You may be right, but the paternal grandfather has been Papa on the male side of my family for at least 3 generations, so I'd hate to change it now.
