A Little Something Extra

Quick update

Thanks for the well-wishes, everyone. I'll be checking out of the hospital tomorrow. Unfortunately, Matthew will not be joining me. It appears he might be here another week. The threshold for eating in order to be discharged from the NICU is higher than it is for leaving the regular nursery. He is off oxygen, so now it's just a matter of getting him to take all the calories the doctors want him to take. What a wonderful experience to re-live... not.

This was Nathan as a newborn. Any resemblance to Matthew? I see a bit in the eyes, but not in the mouth. Matthew

Oh my gosh, I hope Matthew comes home soon. Reading this brought back sooo many memories about Owen's ordeal, and then about Micah (who is really freakin cute btw!)-I hope you don't have to go through any of that again!

OMG... what gorgeous children you have. Congratulations on your newest prince Matthew. Just wondering, did you get Micah's glasses from www.specs4us.com? Tiana may be getting a pair herself.
