Landmark day!

I intended the title of the blog to refer to what we were seeing "Outside the Incubator" but that title took on new life late this afternoon. At about 4:00 pm we were at the U when our nurse asked if Julie would like to hold him!

The simple answer was "yes" and the following was what transpired, the first time Mom and Baby met, outside the incubator.

The other great news of the day is that after this video was taken, she was able to change his diaper. He was back in the incubation unit for this portion of the day, but seeing that was something special as well.

His diapers are very, very small, and she still had to fold the top portion down to fit his little body. He didn't fuss at all and was loving Mom helping him.

She changed his diaper, trust me, there are many more photos of such and after that he fell asleep and we were on our way, smiling!

Thank you all for your comments, prayers, and well wishes. We are doing well at present and will be posting again tomorrow.

Goodnight all!

  1. Congrats to both of you. Julie, I do not know you as well as I know tommy, but in order to put of with that guy you must be strong. Being a recent parent myself, I an deeply moved by your courage and strength. Life is chuckin some clubs so i guess we better get our helmets on. These are the moments we look back on in our lives and wonder how we ever did it. I am so proud of you both. call if you need anything, or just someone to talk to.

    Love you both

  2. I am so excited for both of you. I can share with everyone that I got to see the smiles at dinner after their wonderful day. Tom said this was the best day of his life and Julie said she knows she is a mom now! Thank you God for always holding us in the palm of your hands.
