Day 3 in NICU...



I get to hold my baby girl for the first time today. 1 o'clock can't get here soon enough. Thank you all for your prayers and sweet comments. A is continuing to do well with each passing day. I promise to write more when we're home and things have settled down a bit. For now, pictures will have to do. :)

Love,

She is just precious. I am a friend of Amber Patterson and want to say congrats!!! I had my daughter at 35 weeks as well. We spent a week in the NICU as well. It is hard, but you will be thankful for all the good care and advice when you get home!! Prayers and thoughts with you.

I cried when I read what you wrote..."I get to hold my baby girl for the first time today"!
I don't know you but I just love you from reading your blog...you are such an uplifting person and always find the best in every situation!
My husband and I adopted our daughter 21 years ago and I wish I could live that day over and over because it was the happiest day of our lives. We feel so blessed!
Love and prayers from Wisconsin

Awwww I love how she's sleeping with her little hand balled up into a fist. Total sweetness.

Hope you're recovering and feeling well.

God is so Good!! Jill, I worked with your cousin April B and she told me about you last year. We actually went to the same fertility clinic and I have seen you several times but was always too shy to say anything. But I have been following your blog since early 2008. Our 1st invitro worked and we delivered twin boys in August, but we lost one a few days later. People often tell me how much of an inspiration I am to them but I cannot help but to laugh and tell them how my blog got started (it was you) and how you've inspired me to go on. I have even talked about you on my own blog. You have been a true inspiration to me. Congratulations sister! You deserve this.

She is lovely, and I hope that you were able to hold her all day long. I can't wait to read your story, and I hope that you and she get to come home soon. Even more, I hope that you and Baby A are doing well, getting strong and loving life. It's a wonderful time and I hope you are enjoying it to it's fullest. {{hugs}}
