Thank YOU

Friday, March 30, 2012

I thought I would take some time to say thank you to all of my friends, family, and fellow bloggers. The comments from people who do and don't know me on my blog have been so uplifting. Those of you who read my blog and give me advice and encouraging words will never know how much your comments mean to me. I have not been able to reciprocate yet but I pray that when you are going through something like this in the future that I am able to support you in the way that you have supported me. Your kindness and thoughtfulness does not go unnoticed! 

Below are some photos that were taken the day of and after Blair was born. I can not believe how selfless our friends and family are to have helped us so much. I look forward to the day when I can return the favor!

is your baby pretty? yes or no? HA. priorities of a 1st grader...

i picked my favorite ones

i wanted to share this sweet photo yesterday but couldn't upload it. great grandma and B. she helped us get an amazing king sized bed so we could put our old queen in the guest room for visitors.
 Yesterday B had her first "high risk" doctor's appointment for her follow up in the NICU. She now weighs 6 pounds 12 ounces which is good because she went home weighing 6.3. I guess nursing is working! Everything else the doctor looked at looked good so she does not have anymore high risk appointments. Yay! That's my girl! 

After her appointment I nursed B in the waiting room and chatted with another NICU mom. Her daughter was a twin born at 27 weeks. The other twin passed away and she had to be in the hospital in San Diego (she lives in Riverside) for two weeks. AND her baby was in NICU for 2 months! AND her baby weighed only one pound when born. AND she already has a three year old. Can you imagine? She had to commute to see her NICU baby and she had to spend all that time in the hospital alone. Made me feel like I had it easy with B in the NICU for ten days. 

Today my mom and I are going to get pedicures. B is coming along for the ride and I hope she behaves! This will probably be the least relaxing pedicure I ever get but I'm still looking forward to it! B can officially ride in her car seat without an adult in the back seat (I'm free!). So I plan on getting one of those mirrors that allow me to spy on her while driving. Any suggestions to good ones to purchase? 

Continued prayers for our sleep at night. B isn't a naughty baby at all but still keeps me awake in the middle of the night because she's got her days and nights mixed up I think. Next week M will start to give her one bottle a day (of breast milk) so I have to start pumping again once a day. Pray that this transition goes well. And finally please pray for M. He's got a lot on his plate with work, finalizing new house stuff and figuring out renting our old house, having time for baby, and having time for himself to relax. Pray for him to have patience, energy, and the ability to prioritize things that need to get done vs. things that can wait. Thanks you guys! Have a great weekend!
