I got to HOLD him!!

Our Little Happy Family....our first real photo!
July 8, 2009 Kaden-33 days old

I wanted to post these pictures. It was a big Milestone yesterday...I finally was able to hold my son after 33 days! What an amazing experience. I cried, I laughed, and I was in complete aww...Motherhood. What an amazing calling. I feel so blessed to experience it...I love my son so much. It makes me love my mom so much more...
Rusty called me yesterday from work and said I would like to come down for 12 o'clock cares (change diaper, take temp, reposition him and love on him-they do it every 4 hours) and I was like ok...I will pack us a lunch and we can do that...Well, the Dr. kept telling me now that he is off the jet you can hold him maybe tomorrow and then maybe tomorrow...he had a rough couple of times adjusting. So I didn't really get my hopes up yesterday but when I walked in to the pod Kaden's nurse was so excited to tell me that the Dr. said I could hold him for like 15 minutes...

Well, because Kaden did soooo well while I was holding him they left him on me for like an hour and 10 I wanted to share the pictures!! Rusty got to be there!
PS...Kaden will be having PDA surgery to close his PDA in his heart this afternoon or tomorrow morning so like I always say please keep him in your prayers that all will go well with surgery.
