I woke up to a nurse needing vitals at 5:30.
Immediately I asked when we could go to the NICU.
It was like Christmas morning; the nurses were my parents, making we wait to open my presents until everyone else was awake and ready.
We had to try walking, take out my foley, wait until rounds, and take my meds.
After what seemed like forever, we wheeled back over to the NICU.
I got to do kangaroo cuddling for the first time (aka, skin to skin.)
We loved it.
And I quickly passed out.
My parents both got to be here for Calvin’s birthday.
Their first grandchild!
Calvin’s first article of clothing – a cute little hat.
We quickly stopped needing the nurses help to hold him – Nate’s already a pro
Calvin reaching for his mommy – melts my heart
Calvin is already pretty comfy here in the NICU!
