Grandma and Dandad Visit

My parents were visiting the week after Christmas. We were SO blessed by them being here and we even had the awesome privilege of them being here when we brought Liam home from the hospital!

Grandma made us some meals to freeze and eat later and Dandad played with David while his world was being transformed before his eyes.

Here are some highlights...

They had so much fun playing with David and holding Liam. The boys love their Grandma and Dandad so much!


Yesterday was our first day without daddy :( Bill took the rest of last week off so we were able to hang out as a family. We had a WONDERFUL vacation and were all sad when he went back to work!

David is doing great with his new brother. He wants to know where Liam is at all times and loves giving him kisses. Bill and I keep talking about this summer and how much fun the boys will have together!

Liam is doing great also. He's sleeping from about 9PM-7 or 8 in the morning, getting up once to eat and going right back to sleep. It's such a blessing that he didn't get stuck on the 3 hour NICU schedule. He's eating well and only needs to be supplemented with a bottle every once in awhile.

NICU Pictures

Our newest addition spent 7 days in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Ironically, so did his big brother. Liam, just like David, had trouble keeping his blood sugar up. He was on an IV of glucose until he could hold his own. Here are some pictures of our little wonder during his hospital stay:

Liam had his 10 day check-up on Monday. His doctor said he is doing VERY well and should be treated like a regular 2 week old! Meaning, to us, we don't have to wake him every 4 hours at night to feed him! He slept 5 hours the first night before needing to eat and 6 hours last night! I will be just fine with getting up once at night!

He is laying in my arms right now and is just as sweet as can be!

We are home.

Grandma and Dandad left yesterday :( So sad. But we will see them again at the end of March... unless they want to come visit again before that!! :)

More updates will come, but this momma needs to go to bed.

For now ... check out these brothers who are quickly becoming best friends.
