Quick update: 6 days old

Jack was born at 8:26am on December 1st at 32 weeks 2 days after a very long intense labor starting 5am on November 30th. Vaginally :)

He weighed 5lb 1oz... now on day 6 he weighs 4lb 11oz.

I am in my glory. I never imagined how absolutely phenomenal this would feel.

He is such a strong little boy. He would have turned 33 weeks yesterday... we already moved out of the NICU into the CCN yesterday on his 5th day of life. Miraculously he has needed no breathing assistance at all. He is breastfeeding before every tube feeding now and he is actually getting some. He is the most precious thing in my life. I am completely over in love with him.

I get to room in with him in the CCN so I am here all the time now for every feeding and diaper change ... they let me really take over most of the care here which is so great.

I will hopefully write his birth story soon. Busy busy mommy <3
