So today is Gage's due date, so in honor the day I decided to put pictures on the blog.
This morning Gage wanted to feed more often and be held. I am wondering if he starting a growth spurt. He was more settled in the afternoon. He got a bath today- he is soo cute all bundled in his towel! When he was cold as I was getting him dressed he cried a little- he has saddest sounding cry. He is such a sweet baby. I hardly cries, some days go by without hearing him cry. He looks so much like his dad. I have notice his nose is growing to look more like his dad's, he has the tiniest bit of cleft to his chin like his dad... and he is a sweet heart- just like his dad.
|Gunnar went down to the nursery with Gage and took this picture, came back up to the room to show me- my heart dropped to see him. Standard procedure is to do C-pap for about an hour to see how they do after that- then they gave surfactant then...|
|They put him on the ventilator to be ready to transport to the NICU.|
|Saying good bye. Thankfully the doctor discharged me quickly. Gage left in the afternoon, and I was discharged around 6 pm- though I got off a bit later because I had a panic/anxiety attack... it was a crazy day with no sleep....|
|Sonja brought beautiful tulips to celebrate Gage's birth. Avi was so cute smelling them.|
|A few days later we got to hold him! We had to be very careful- he had an umbilical arterial line in.|
|Avi and Daren- a year apart and almost the same size!|
|Gage in Dad's arms.|
|Getting ready to go home! Sunday, 12 days after being born. He flew through his care and learning to nurse.|
|Night before Gunnar left- Tuesday.|
|Avi's tantrum- I think they are hilarious- she lies down on her stomach and kicks her legs.|
|Avi always wants to hold Gage.|
