Total Basset Case: One Month

Oct 17, 2016

One Month

The past 4 weeks have been the fastest and slowest of our entire lives.
Clearly this whole experience has been the ultimate surprise but if you would have told us 31 days ago this is where we would be today, I would have laughed in your face.  
The amount of emotions, smiles, tears, fears and whole new world of knowledge we've experienced in the last month has been unreal. 
That being said, we are so happy Little Mister is here and makes us smile multiple times a day.  
I mean, he's super cute so that counts for something ;)
In one month 
-we've gone from pregnant to having a baby
-Little Mister has grown from 3lbs 5.6oz to 5lbs 1oz (!!)
-started nursing
-started taking a bottle
 -learned a WHOLE lot about NICU life and have a whole new appreciation for doctors and nurses
-been showered with immense amounts of love, support, meals and more from our friends than we could have ever imagined
-discovered preemie clothes are not the easiest thing to find (but can be done! post on that soon!)
-learned how to give a bath in a small pink hospital bucket
-learned what all the beeps and boops and noises within the NICU mean
 -enjoying celebrating milestones no matter how big or small
 and much, much MORE

He is so cute and seems so alert too! I'm sure NICU life is hard and definitely not what you expected, but it sounds like you are making the most of the experience. Good job Mama!

Love him!!! He is so precious!! Do you have an ETA on when little Mister will be able to go home? Do they want him to be a certain weight first?
It looks like he's doing a great job growing and eating!! :)
