Jet's First Bottle

I've been blessed to be able to have some pretty good success pumping my milk/colostrum since Jet was born. I've been sending it over with David and on Wednesday evening (post surgery) the nurse fed him his first bottle of "mommy's special milk." hehe. It's so precious! This is my favorite movie in the world now. :) It should win awards.

Since the video he has been eating pretty good (but he is still groggy from his medicine which slows him down some). I am leaving the hospital today and going to see and hopefully hold my baby boy (on his tummy still of course). David brought his camera and camcorder so we are set to capture every moment! We are so excited! Even more blessings - the doctor just called and Jet's second head ultrasound showed no additional swelling - the ventricles are still stable! Of course they will be still be watching him and it can still happen but we are SO happy to hear he is stable. His incision is healing nicely as well and he is sleeping soundly. Going to see him soon! Praise God. :)

I have tears in my eyes watching this video. Jet is so precious! I can't wait for you to hold your baby boy. Thank you for all the updates:-)

Hi! I just found your blog through Laura LaQuaglia's blog (we went to highschool together). Upon looking through your posts, I realized that I know you! Didn't you do TOSS at Kennesaw Elementary with me (Mrs. Hadley)??? Holy cow, it's a small world! You were just dating a special someone back then if I recall correctly. Is it the same guy you are married to? Congratulations on your new little guy! He is so precious! I'm so happy that he is doing well.
I see that you are teaching 1st grade now too. Good for you! How long and where?
If you are interested, my family also has a blog.

He's a champ at eating!! I seriously cried my eyes out watching this brought back so many memories! Enjoy these moments, (as hard as it may be in the NICU) they go by so fast!

Jet is amazing! Congratulations to you both. Get as much rest as possible and know that you have a lot of people praying for you. And, professionally, I must say that is some pretty good video.

Jet is so beautiful and such a strong little fighter. He certainly showed that bottle who was the boss! The Mansfield family from Kell is holding you close in our thoughts and prayers.

Oh that was so great! Thanks so much for sharing it. That constant beeping and noisiness will help him to be a good sleeper when he gets home. Those hiccups were so sweet!
