I got to hold miss Avery today.
She is SOOOOOOOO little! She’s down to 4lbs 6oz, but she’s off of her feeding tube AND off of her IV. That means we can just hold her. I can’t believe how gorgeous she is… how perfectly tiny. I remarked to her mom that really, she could still be inside – isn’t it incredible to be holding her when she’s small enough to still be in a belly?
It’s hard to hold something that small, and that beautiful, and not cry. It’s hard to not feel every wonderful emotion.
Her mom said, “You know, I’ve never really had a thing for babies before. I’ve never been one of those girls that really wanted to hold every baby they saw. But I can’t get enough of her, I just stare at her! Even when she’s sleeping. I guess I’m just head over heels in love.”
So incredible. The tiniest pinky you’ve ever seen, and mommy and daddy are wrapped so tightly around it.
7 more days until she goes home.
How does a person become MORE tidy, if they are habitually messy? Is it possible?
