I can’t let go without sharing a picture of my favorite ❤️ Beau was 4 days old here and this was first day we were able to touch him at all. His whole body was smaller than his Daddy’s hand. We hadn’t imagined we’d have a preemie (29 weeks) or couldn’t comprehend how small he’d be (2 lbs. 12 oz.), but we also had no idea how much we would learn or how deeply we would love because of his prematurity. It taught us to treasure EVERY thing... his breathing, swallowing, moving, eating; touching his skin, holding his hand, kissing his head, hearing his cry.
I can’t help but think we have loved deeper because he was premature and I’m so thankful.
Also, we really loved our NICU nurses and doctors and are so grateful for all they did for our family!
