All Smiles

Today was a day of ALL smiles!!!! We got to have Mommy and Daddy time. I actually got to hold him for a couple of hours. It has been a little while since we had this type of bonding. All our wonderful nurses (Julie, Susannah, Anna, & Sarah) came in to join us with songs (Justin Bieber mostly...thanks Anna!!!) and dancing (Anna you Anna!!!). He gave all smiles to all of his nurses, but Mommy only got the "smirk," LOL. But you know what...I will take my smirk and roll with it. Jordan also got a chance to wear his beautiful hospital gown donated to us by the Sisters by Heart Foundation. Check him out....

Well, on another note, Jordan reached his feeding goal today of 29 cc and he will have an oil dietary supplement added tomorrow so that he can get off of his lipid meds. He also recieved the last of his anibiotics today at 4pm from his sternum procedure. So no meds going through IV's, everything he gets now is through his g-tube.

We also had a funny incident that occured today. I think the nurses could tell I'm a tad bit rusty when it came to calming my baby. Jordan was sleepy and irritated, daddy and I tried to get him swaddled and bundled but nothing was working. Honestly, I am still afaid to tend to him sometimes becuase he is a little more fragile than any other baby. Daddy had to step in and finish, then Julie made the final touches to keep him cozy. He fell asleep right after. Guess I better get over this fear REALLY soon because Jordan should be home sometime in March. Yay!!!!

I also want to take this moment to thank my partner, my friend, my EVERYTHING...Brian. Talk about a WONDERFUL father. He has been my rock that helps me get through this tough time and I honestly don't know what I would do without him. He's there whenever I want to talk or go spend extra time with Jordan whenever possible. He makes sure our Eldest son (Brian Jr.) is taken care of when unexpected things come up. He's just been there and I love him so much. So happy that I have these three wonderful men in my life.
