Our Lil' Trooper

Chad has been taking over all of our blogging the last few days and I must say he's done a great job at keeping all y'all caught up on everything going on in our life right now.

It's hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that this is our life now. I never imagined that we would be the couple hoovering over an incubator in the NICU. The thought never crossed my mind that our baby wouldn't be coming home with us when I was released from the hospital. I never thought we would have to get permission to hold our baby. And today when we went to the hospital cafeteria for lunch I realized that this was going to be the first of many meals that we would be having at the hospital, as we wait for our precious little one to become strong enough to come home with us.
Everyday we see Logan he seems to be bigger, and stronger, and doing so much better than the day before. They removed another tube today! His blood pressure is steady enough that he no longer needs an internal monitor for it. We were also told that his jaundice is almost completely cured and he will no longer need to "sunbathe" under the special lights wearing his "fast shades" for the majority of his day anymore. He's now eating mama's milk which we are all hoping will help make some substantial improvements in his progress. But all in all we are so proud of our little guy. He's such a trooper! And he is absolutely adorable...ask anyone. ;)
The tender mercies have not stopped since the beginning of the first contractions. We've had angels watching over us and our Father in Heaven has protected our little family in so many ways. We are continually in awe over the many miracles we have witnessed in the past 5 days. And we thank all of you for your constant prayers in our behalf.


  1. tears... I musts be hormonal because some of us are still pregnant!!! so sweet and we just love you guys and can't wait to meet him. Just think next year we will both be celebrating one year birthdays within a week of each other.

  2. Such a tender post! Love it, love you, and love Logan! He is so beautiful, and he is so sweet. I loved watching him calm down when he heard his momma! And I love that top pic, so sweet of you guys! It really is crazy though that all this happened. When I envisioned him coming into this world I didn't envision this for you at all. But it is amazing to see the tender mercies and the blessings through out. The boys and I pray for him and you every day.
