All fresh and clean after a good sponge bath! I can't have a real bath yet, that cord is still hanging on my belly button!!


Daddy and Mommy thought it would be funny to bring me home from the hospital in Mom's suitcase!


All ready to leave the hospital and go to my new home!


Me again ready to go in my new Harley slippers that Daddy had to have me wear home.
I look pretty good with that teddy bear!


I think Teddy is going

to be my best friend!


Mommy and me at the hospital. I love cuddling with Mom!


Here's me at the hospital. I did not like that big mean IV in my hand!


Daddy and me sleeping together at the hospital! Daddy is a great pillow!


This is me in the NICU. I had to have all sorts of tubes and cords hooked up to me. But it was OK as long as I had my little star pillow and mom and dad to hold me lots!


Still in the NICU.
Mom was never far away!


I really didn't like that oxygen tube in my nose. My favorite thing to do was pull it out so the nurses had to put it back in again!


Daddy feeding me in the hospital.


Here's me being held by Aunt Sam. She makes me smile, I love her very much!

So ends the first installment.
