Kangaroo Care

Well, after keeping you all in suspense for days, I looked at the pictures and realized they don't really show you much. That said, I've so enjoyed cuddling up with Elise for the past three nights in a row. The first night I fell asleep and ended up holding her for about an hour and 45 minutes. The second night I held her for about an hour and 15 minutes. Last night I held her for an hour. They say that at least an hour is best so that's what we're working on; we've been so tired that we just did an hour last night so that we could catch some extra sleep.

Our first moments together.

All bundled up for a nice long cuddle.

I was just a little excited.

She's so precious.

Mommy and daughter both sleeping soundly.

How wonderful are those moments. I vividly remember then when my babies were in the NICU. I loved, loved, loved those moments. I am praying for you and your family
