Happy Due Date!

Last Tuesday, Feburary 1st was Mr. Boy's Due Date! It's crazy to think we were given the gift of knowing our son 2 and a half months longer than we should have. Gestationally, he is finally a Newborn (40 weeks old) and not a premie anymore! And he weighs in at a whopping 7 lbs 9oz which is up from 4 lbs when he was born. Not bad for a "newborn." 

I asked one of the Neonatologists this morning for the worst-case, best-case scenarios for getting Mr. Boy home. He said about one month best case, and 2 months worst case. They just aren’t sure if he’s got enough intestines and/or stomach to take full feedings of breast milk and that takes time and patience to determine.  Thanks to everyone who participated in our fabulous Baby Shower last Saturday, Mr. Boy's room is finally ready for his arrival whenever that may be! :)

Mr. Boy is doing much better now since surgery. He is still on the nasal canula to assist in breathing and he's still on narcotics for pain, but he is finally looking and acting a little more like the boy we once knew.

Sad face we saw allll last week as he had trouble sleeping and being comfortable. It was a hard week.
Finally able to sit in his bouncy again.
big yawn!


  1. what a stud. Good morning over there!

  2. He's looking so bright eyed! What a handsome little guy. What a little trooper!


  3. His eyes are SO beautiful!!!
