After a bit of a rough past week after several bouts of not being able to hold down his milk, little Samuel is doing much better this week. In fact, I think he might reach back up to his birth weight at his weigh in tonight.
Susannah and Noah were the final "eligible" ones to meet their new brother this week (siblings have to be 3 years old or older to enter the NICU, so Nehemiah and Eliseo will have to wait to meet Samuel until he comes home).
I brought Susannah with me to visit yesterday afternoon and wish I hadn't forgotten the camera. At least I remembered the milk this time. Sunday, before morning church service, we all drove to the hospital to deliver Samuel his milk. As we entered the parking lot, I reached in my bag to get it and realized I'd left it in the refrigerator at home...I can't blame that one on my pregnant brain anymore, so I'll go with lack of sleep :)
Noah came up with me today and I loved watching his face as I placed Samuel in his arms for the first time. I remembered the camera this time :) and our nurse and I took some pictures.
Thank you so much for praying. Each day I wake up and think, "We are one day closer to bringing our little Samuel home". I can't wait to be together as a family again.
