Our beautiful little miracle baby arrived on August 4th.
6lbs 9oz, 20 inches long.
He has beaten all the odds, and astounded all the doctors. The big NICU stay we anticipated didn't happen. No ventilator, no feeding tubes. Just a light bed-at home-to combat jaundice. A light bed is so very very doable!
We have been blown away with how amazingly perfect the past few days have been. To have planned to leave your baby for weeks in critical condition, and end up bringing him home instead is astounding.
I'll get around to details and what's likely to come and all that.
But right now, I am totally and completely absorbed in the little miracle that is resting in my arms.
