2 Months

It seems like so much longer than two months, and also shorter is some ways. The days go by quickly waking up early, pumping, going to work, visiting Emma in the NICU, and then pumping some more. The time we get to spend with her is never enough, she is such a sweet girl. She is more awake and alert now, and has been moved from the isolette to an open crib, and we're practicing breastfeeding once a day. Her current weight is 4 lbs 11 oz and she just keeps going up! I love watching her grow and change.

what a cutie:)

"um excuse me, can I go home now?"

Open crib!

Dad is a pro diaper changer

Bath time is still our favorite, yesterday when we were changing her diaper (just prior to her bath) she was crying and putting up a fuss, but as soon as her toes touched the warm water she calmed right down. She gets super relaxed and I think her favorite part is having her hair washed and combed.

Best day ever

Tender little fingers

She's doing well with taking a bottle as well as with breastfeeding, we love working with the lactation consultant, occupational therapist, and physical therapist. We are surrounded by nurses who are kind and supportive and encourage us in helping Emma learn how to eat.

On Monday I got to spend the whole day with Emma, it was so wonderful to be there for so long. Before I left I changed her diaper, took her temperature and helped the nurse get her feeding started. I held her and snuggled her and she opened her big eyes and just stared at me. When she was placed back in her crib she furrowed her little eyebrows at me as if to say "where do you think you're going?" It just about broke my heart, so I came back over to her crib and put one hand on her head and one on her belly and looked into those beautiful eyes and explained that I had to go and pick up her daddy from work but that her nurse would take care of her until I could come back the next day. Leaving her there is always the hardest part of my day, but coming back to see her is the very best! Being a mother to such a sweet, smart, tender little human is just the best.

This is my favorite face

  1. Thank you for sharing such precious moments. She a beautiful girl!


    When the subject of Christianity has been debated the majority has never been right.

    The majority of first century Jews rejected Jesus as the messiah.---The majority has never been right.

    John 4:25, 26 The woman said to Him. "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things."
    26 Jesus said to her. "I who speak to you am He."(NKJV)

    The majority of world rejects Jesus as the only Savior.---The majority has never been right.

    Acts 4:10-12 ...the name of Jesus Christ.....12 "Nor is there no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."(NKJV)

    The majority of those who claim to be Christians believe the false doctrine of original sin. They believe that because Adam and Eve sinned that all men are guilty of spiritual sin at birth. They believe in inherited sin.---The majority has never been right.

    Ezekiel 18:20 "The soul that sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. (NKJV)

    No man has inherited the guilt of Adam. Men will face spiritual death because of their own sins.

    Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned---(NKJV)

    Death spread to all men because all men have sinned.

    The majority of those who claim Jesus as Savior believe that modes of water baptism are sprinkling and pouring---The majority has never been right.

    Mark 16:16 Whoever trusts and is immersed will be saved; whoever does not trust will be condemned. (Complete Jewish Bible)
    Mark 16:16 He who has believed, and has been immersed, will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (The Better Version of the New Testament by Chester Estes)

    There are no translations that translate Mark 16:16 as such, "He who believes and has been sprinkled or poured shall be saved."---The majority has never been right.

    The majority of Baptist believe that water baptism is not essential to the forgiveness of sins and that once you are saved you can never be lost---The majority of Baptists have never been right.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)
    Galatians have fallen from grace.(NKJV)

    The majority of those who claim to be Christian believe that their church denomination is the final authority when it comes to faith and practice of the Christian faith---The majority has never been right.

    The word of God found in the Bible and the Bible alone is not only the final authority, but the only authority for mankind.


    Matthew 7:13-14 "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.(NKJV)

    If the majority were always right there would be many who find life eternal, however---The majority has never been right.

    Luke 13:23-24 Then one said to Him, "Lord, are there few who are saved?" And He said to them, 24 "Strive to enter the narrow gate for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.(NKJV)
