Baby Report

Mason is doing great. He got to eat for the first time last night. And he is tolerating breast milk just fine. Today they got to turn him over on his back. He has been on his stomach the whole time. So now I can actually see him, and look at his little toes and legs. I have decided that he looks like my grandfather. He, my granddad, is 6'8" and weighs like 2 pounds. He also has long curly toes. And Mason looks just like that. It's very funny. He's so long and skinny and has these crazy long toes that curl. Neither Madi or Kyle had toes like that.

It's just so nice to see him doing so well. The doctor will come in about 11a.m. and assess him and I am anxious to hear what he has to say, or what he thinks. They should start decreasing the O2 soon.

My night at home was restless. The fun part about labor is getting to bring your baby home. But I am really am doing okay. I am just so relieved to see him doing good, and I know there is end in sight. Thanks for all your prayers.

I'm glad he's doing good. I can't wait to see him!! I remember when Jadon was in NICU, it was so sad to see him just laying there. I can't imagine what you have gone through. Call if you need me!

I know it must have been so hard for you not to bring him home, but he's in the best place he can be right now, getting big and strong and soon you'll get to bring him home and start having a "normal" life again :) Love ya.

I'm so glad he's eating! I remember when we first had Darby we had this great nurse who calmed me during a panicked moment and told me if a baby is eating there is so very little to worry about. So YAY for eating!!! Looking forward to hearing you're taking Mason home!!!
