another update....

Kaden continues to grow!! He now weighs 3 lbs 8 ozs.  He is on cpap and looking so cute and big these days...Here are some pictures from the last couple of days!

This is my beanie that keeps me company in my incubator.  I am wearing a little outfit my grandma fife and aunt lari gave me.  I am on cpap in this picture and taking a nice nap!
This is a picture of my back.  This is the scar from the incision made from my PDA heart surgery.  It is healing really well!
My mom was holding me the other day and I held her hand for about an hour!  I threw a huge fit when my mom put me back in bed....I just love being held!
I couldn't get this picture to turn....this is my dad holding me like a big boy!  I love him sooo much!!
One of my primary nurses named Heather tried giving me a bottle today....I only drank 3 cc's...It is not easy for me to drink a bottle when I am on cpap and my cleft...I dropped my heart rate but I will learn soon enough!
Mom and my nurse let me hang out with no diaper today for a little bit and I was just sooo cozy! I am finally putting a little chub on my bum!
Don't I look soo cozy!!??


  1. aww jacquie you guys have been so blessed. i just want to snuggle that little guy. i can't imagine how difficutl it is not to be able to hold him all the time :( but soon he'll be home with you!

  2. As soon as I saw that picture of him holding your finger I started crying! What a sweet little boy. I am so happy this little miracle baby is getting stronger each day! It makes me really emotional to think my baby is just 4oz. smaller than him and still inside my belly. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. We all have so much to be grateful for.

  3. Jacquie, He is absolutely amazing. He is just packing on the weight. YEAH! You guys have truly been blessed with such an amazing fighter. I would love to come to your baby shower so I am going to have my mom give your mom my address. I love you all and pray for you daily

  4. It is so wonderful to see him getting more chubby. I am so happy for you, he is such a MIRACLE. What a wonderful blessing being a mother is.

  5. Jacquie, He is adorable! I don't know how you handle all of this. You are one strong lady! I pray often that he progresses soon and you get to take him home. You guys are awesome!
