Well, not outta NICU, but Connors out of the isolet. Just gotta get the rest of the wires/tubes off & we'll be home free.

...but we got a whole day of holding/feeding baby & found a corner where we could get some pics without bothering any of the other NICU babies;

OOooooooohhhh! What a good looking little man you've got there, acara. I would say he's well worth all the drama and trouble and worry it took to get him here! I hope it's smooth sailing from now on out.

Oh! Look at that, looks to me like he already has the beginnings of a green thumb for growing sfgs, just like his proud papa! But you're forbidden from calling him "sprout" as a nickname - might be cute now, but he'd hate it when he's a teenager.

He is very beautiful Acara. Don't worry about losing out on spoiling time. Kids are resiliant, they catch up on spoiling very fast!

from NICU to tanning beds

Post  acara on 7/9/2011, 8:00 pm

Well Connor got out of NICU and is down in the nursery. He's got a bit of jaundice, so they've got him under the lights for a few days to get the bilirubin levels taken care of .... but fairly minor (to us), in the whole scope of things.

However, I did take the opportunity to change his crib nametag to "Connor v2.0, wireless edition", in honor of him getting all the tubes/lines taken out Very Happy

Acara and Mrs...

...such a a beautiful new baby son! Thank God for his birth and both Mama and baby's health...all things considered, it's all good news!

I appreciate that you let us "walk" with y'all in this complicated pregnancy, and now we get to share in your joy! I really believe in the power of prayer, and that it has made a wonderful difference!

May God continue to strengthen your family, and soon you'll all be at home together, growing literally and figuratively...and in the garden... Very Happy!

Take good care...of each other!

Acara, your sense of humor reminds me of my dad's! He was also the one who wore Hawiian print shirts, shorts, straw hat, and black socks with sandles when we went to Six Flags and places like that, my brother and I thought it was cool even then!

Yay! What a beautiful and healthy looking baby! Nice and plump. That's how we like them. Now fertilize him and watch him grow. Smile

MM (Mommy's Mix) : Lots of milk, lots of sleep, lots of diapers, lots of carrying him around, and he ought to shoot right up.

When the last granddaughter was born, they had her in the incubator for several days. We dubbed it the Chicken Nugget warmer (in honor of McDonalds). Glad to hear the baby is doing well and the father pulled through as well.

Unfortunately, he's still in the chicken nugget warmer, which really stinks because they discharged mama, so we have to commute 60 miles for every feeding.

Life is currently 3-hour circles of pump-drive-feed, around the clock.

Little munchkin has gotta get better soon, as mom and dad have completely lost their minds & have deteriorated to playing with Connors things, while waiting to make the drive for the next scheduled feeding.

Please get well little man ....... your mama and daddy REALLY need you Very Happy



..... and daddy is having waaayyy too much fun with the shark bath towel

Note to Connor: Buy oil stock. Seriously, we do so hope you have him home with you very soon, and not just because of the gas used. He needs holding...you need holding him. Win--Win. Our heartfelt prayers are with you all. Nonna
