A Mom Meets Her Boy

A Magical Moment....

No words are necessary!
A Very Proud and Thankful Mom and Dad

Today has been a good day...I am so tired but so happy that as I go to sleep tonight, Grayson is sleeping in the NICU with no IV's, no tubes...drinking from a bottle and even has his hair combed.

And guess who just came from spending several hours with him.... I even got to rock him tonight......even talked to him about our first visit to meet Mickey. Rocking babies just happens to be one of my most very favorite things IN THE WORLD to do.

But the special part of today was Grayson and his Mom. Though Dana probably left the hospital a little early from a C-Section and was in a lot of pain, nothing was going to keep her another day from her boy. You can see the reunion in the pictures. I can't seem to write about it without the tears pouring...so I will just let the pictures speak for me. She was the first one to rock him ....I will post some of those pictures tomorrow. We all encouraged her to go home and rest and not come back to the hospital tonight. We live very close to the hospital the baby is in,(Greg and Dana live 45 minutes away)so I went back and stayed with him tonight. What a sweet privilege. I feel like Dana will be much stronger tomorrow and can spend more time holding him. He is a little jaundice, but when that is better this boy is heading home and that may be in the next 3 or 4 days. What a miracle.

The NICU nurses are THE BEST...I cannot say enough good things about them. Tonight our family goes to sleep so thankful to God for healing our little man....and with much gratitude to each of you for praying.
I have fallen madly in love with this little guy...
Grayson looks so much like Greg's baby pictures

Good night sweet Grayson ...Looks like he has had his hair styled.

Oh Teresa, that is wonderful news. I'm sure that seeing Grayson was just the medicine that dana needed. Nothing like a little baby therapy to get you through the day. Grayson is such a handsome little guy. You get some much deserved rest and keep those pictures coming.

Beautiful....Simply Beautiful! I can't imagine how many happy tears were cried today when his mommy entered that hospital room. I'm sure that he was the most beautiful thing she had ever laid eyes on and couldn't have been more thankful for the gift she had been given to love.

Many many blessings!

Teresa, you stopped by my blog a couple weeks ago..I'm just getting time to read yours and wow - I will be praying for your family. Having had 2 crash c-sections and terrible reactions to anesthesia I can so empathize with Dana. My heart aches for the pain she is going through physically and trying to keep it together to be there for Grayson. I will be praying for Grayson, Dana & your whole family. He's blessed to have a grandma like you! Blessings...
