Exciting news!!

Alan and I arrived at the hospital today for Sebastian’s 9am feeding, prepared to spend the day with him before going home for yet another night. The great thing about getting to the hospital at 9am is it means the pediatricians for the NICU and ISCU (infant special care unit) are making their rounds, so […]

Nap time with Daddy

My daddy has been working hard all week, and we haven’t had much time together. Kathleen, the nice nurse that took care of me yesterday and today told my Mommy about a zer0-gravity chair that they have in the NICU that is great for naps! After my Mommy fed me this afternoon, Daddy and I […]

Breast is best…

Now that I am off of my oxygen, Mommy breast feds me when she is at the hospital visiting with me (usually 3-4 feedings) I am catching on like a champ and its really great snuggle time! AND I can now regulate my own temperature so I have been upgraded to a bed without a […]

Snow and Skin to Skin

It’s been such an exciting few days! The doctors said I didn’t need my central lines anymore, so my belly button finally gets to heal (the cord was removed when I was just a day old!) Aside from not having to additional wires attached to me, I also get to have skin to skin contact […]

Snuggles with Mommy and Daddy

A quick post… Mommy is up late due to her breast pumping schedule and wanted to share these pictures. When Mommy and Daddy went to see my doctor in the NICU tonight, the nice nurse watching me asked if they wanted to hold me! It was my first time getting baby snuggles! I got to […]

Sebastian Has Arrived!

Birth story to come soon, we’ve been awake for nearly 50 hours, minus a few sporadic naps… Editing this post to add the brief birth annoucement email Alan sent out on January […]

Headed to the hospital

after 4 hours in L&D last night with hard but non progressing contractions, we came home, got some “sleep” and now are headed back in! YAY! More to follow…. ps Morphine + cat/cow is great for back labor, that and the Fabulous Holly Hochstadt! Thank you HOLLY!!! XOXO

Not enough room at the inn…

I got a call from the charge nurse at L&D, they had 6 mama’s come in tonight, all in active labor, which means folks like me with medical inductions have to wait. I’ve chatted with the midwives and I am supposed to call tomorrow morning at 6am. They should be able to reschedule me for […]

Winding down

Only one more Centering session left! Here is our group, minus Elaina and Josh, who had their baby boy, Isaac just 12 minutes before our class started today! We will have to photoshop their picture in somehow! We are all counting the days until we meet our little ones, there are probably some unofficial polls […]

Waiting on Sebastian

Well, we are somewhere between 37 and 38 weeks pregnant, depending on a.) who you ask b.) the method for determining said due date and c.) science. Of course, Sebastian could make his debut at any time now, and we are very excited! We are glad he wasn’t a Christmas baby, but he could still […]
