When he's this precious...

I'm pretty sure I'm going to love
this whole motherhood thing!


Connor is still doing really well. He's lost a little weight since birth, but that's to be expected. He's still breathing on his own, and getting stronger every day. Today he even opened both eyes for us. One doctor mentioned to Brian that all we have to do now is fatten him up, and he can go home. He looks a little bit like an old man... lots of skin and wrinkles that he needs to grow into... kind of like our own Benjamin Button. :)

I finally got to hold my little boy today, and words cannot express how amazing that hour was! We'll go back to the NICU tonight to do it again.

Meanwhile, today has been my best day here so far! No fever for me since 11pm last night (knock on wood!), and I've had a lot less pain today. I've been able to get out of bed by myself (which is huge), and my appetite is coming back. Things are looking very promising that I'll be in my own bed by Tuesday night (and back here Wednesday morning to spend time with Connor)!

He is so small!

I am thrilled to hear he is doing well. I have been thinking about you a lot. You are in my prayers. Please take care of that little man - and take care of yourself.

Ethan was born early - not three months early but enough that he had a rough start. We had to leave the hospital without him and he was in the NICU for a while. It is a tough thing - and it breaks your heart. I will be sending lots of prayers your way!

Oh my goodness. I just got caught up on all the details of his arrival. What a scare, I am glad you finally got to hold him. Seeing all these pictures brings back so many memories of when Avery was born. She was 2 lb. 10 oz. I also had a C-section. What a special thing that you got to do Kangaroo care with him. It makes me cry. I will keep little Connor and you all in my prayers too. I have been there and it is a hard time, emotional as heck. You sound so positive about how he is doing, and that is great. I wish you all good health and healing. This will be a Christmas you will never forget.
