Baby Blues

Bob and I were in the NICU earlier, and Bobby opened his eyes a few times! This has made my day! You have no idea what it's like to see your baby do something simple like that! He was really fussy this morning, and of course with my hormones, I was a mess. If he cries, I cry.

Anyhow, he is doing much better this afternoon. He has opened his baby blue's a couple of times. And, his oxygen level was in the low 40's.

I'm up in the room now resting, and snacking. I have to come up every couple of hours to pump. We'll report more later!

Thanks for the sweet comments and prayers.

i am catching up on blog reading due to Mini K being in the hospital and didn't realize your son had been born. We are veterans of the NICU and trust me your little one will teach you what it means to be strong and brave. Those babies are amazing...3 years later and ours is stilla fighter. Your nerves might get frazzled but love them and TAKE CARE of YOURSELF so you have strength for them. I wil keep your family in my prayers!

that's great to see such progress already. jennifer you are so sweet and such a good mom already. thank you for keeping us updated. before you know it you'll be home and holding little bobby in your arms every second. You'll soon wonder why you ever thought you'd need, a swing, bouncer, front pack... because all you want to do is hold him. that's how i was anyway.

Dave and I wanted to send our congratulations! I was quite shocked to get Bob's email that Bobby had already been born. I was like, "is it June already??" We know that your little one is going to be strong and back in your arms before long! You guys are doing great! Can't wait to meet him! Love totty and dave
