I'm going to be an Aunt!

Wish me luck! Just got the call my sisters water broke! Oh boyyyy! I'm waiting for my aunt to come pick me up, I'm a nervous wreck!!

She's 35 weeks! And it's a boy!!! 

I can't wait to see him! Smiley Very Happy

 

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Yeah!!!!  That is awesome news. 

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Good to hear!  Glad he is doing well.

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Hi arielaaaaaaaa- that is good news, hard for a Mom to go home without their baby, my mom was home for about 2+ weeks before my older bros, twins, were able to come home.

A close acquaintance just had another grandchild, also a preemie, 5 Lbs 1 oz at birth then in NICU and down to 4 lbs 8 oz - she's now doing better and just over 5 lbs at 1 month old and all is well. Hope that is encouraging to you and your family. They all have their own little journeys. I'll keep my prayers going. So happy for all of you. If you could see me right now you'd see a smile on my face and little hearts coming out of my eyes,

Glad to know this is a well needed addition to your family as you mentioned in a previous note. Very glad you finally got to hold him, wasn't it wonderful? Yeah. You'll have tons of fun with him. So try to rest up and save your energy for when he comes home.  Smiley Happy

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Yes It was extremely hard for her to come home without him! I hope when we go to check on him today he's still eating good and he's been weaned off a little more! 

It was wonderful holding him! It's just a little hard to make sure all the wires connected to him don't get tangled. 

Thank you so much for all your kind words! They do help!

Here is another picture i got to take of him. He's got a little feeding tube in his nose, but he doesn't need it anymore, he's eating good! I will most likely have more photos today since they told us we could bring him some clothes!

 

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Ohhh....sooooo sweet.  Those cubby cheeks and all that hair!  Arielaaaaaa he is just so adorable!  

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

What an angel. Congrats to your sister and her new family!

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

awwwwwwwww ! sorry but I want to pinch his face gently haha Smiley Happy. Too too cute.

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Aww what a gorgeous baby! Congrats on being an aunt! Smiley Very Happy

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Look at that hair!! He is super cute Smiley Happy

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

omg! congrats!!!so beautifull

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Thanks everyone! He is just precious! I would reply to you all individually but that might take AWHILE!!! He is doing AWESOME! It looks like Friday he might be coming home! Tonight he should be weaned off the IV completely! And then the car seat test, and then the 12-24 hours monitoring him and he's good to go! I have a picture with his eyes open, he looks all mad! I'll post it when i get more time! 

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Hi arielaaaaaaaa - It's so wonderful to hear good news, hoping by the time you read this he'll be off the tube. Love that picture, just looks like he cut himself the first time he shaved, that's all. Glad you feel the prayers and well wishes. It's scary holding a tiny baby, all the wires and things had to make you super nervous, hoping they will be a thing of the past soon. I think he'll be saying TGIF, I finally get to go home! Smiley Happy

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Great news, He is going home Tomorrow. Last night they took the feeding tube out! Smiley Very Happy He's been eating great!

He's completely weaned off the IV, They should have done the Car seat test already, and he is good to go tomorrow! I can't wait till morning, I'm so ready for him to be home! 

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

arielaaaaaaa, you are so totally going to be the Best Aunt in the World!  I can just see it now!  Smiley Very Happy  Congratulations!  He looks scrumptious like all babies should! 

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Aww Thanks! I'm going to try! Smiley Tongue

I know i'm never going to be able to tell him No!!!

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

arielaaaaaaa - Awesome news! Becoming an Aunt is one of the best things that's ever happened to me, certain will be one of the real Biggies in your life too. I'm so sure you'll be a wonderful Aunt, relish it. You might also want to write things down, you think you'll remember it all but for every 1 thing you remember there are many more you'll forget, I never thought that would happen but It's a sad truth, I so wish I'd kept a little journal. It'll be so different from his parents 'journal' It will be all yours and will  be from your perspective and experiences. Then you'll get to share it all with him when he's grown. He'll so love and appreciate that you kept that journal of your own. Just a suggestion though. Hope his mom is feeling well. You know you're in my prayers. So excited for you. Smiley Happy

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Oh it definitely the best thing thats EVER happened to me! 

I'm actually making him a scrapbook, so we can all look back on it when he's older. I plan on writing little notes in it for him! The only page i have done so far is his ultrasound pictures. I was about to start the Baby shower pages but he came right after we got the pictures. 

My sister is doing good, she was up walking around later that day after having him! 

Thank you for your prayers!! Smiley Very Happy

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

That is awesome. I made ABC mini books for my BFF's 2 girls. All she had to do was add the pictures to each page.  I wrote a letter to each of them as the last page of the books. 

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

Aw that's so nice! I definitely wanted to do something special for him, so i figured a scrapbook would be a great way to express my creativity! 

I'm definitely going to write a little letter on the first page for him! 

Re: I'm going to be an Aunt!

He's Home! Smiley Very Happy

I'm so glad! And relieved!!!!

His little Newborn pictures came out so freaking adorable!!! 

If anyone wants to see them i will post them when they are up online.
