It's all the little things that matter to a preemie mom. I got to change his diaper tonight for the first time. I was also able to do his mouth care and clean it out and take his temperature. I know these are all things all mommies get to do, but when you aren't even allowed to hold your brand new baby and have to look at him through a glass window everytime you want to bond with your baby, its hard to realize your a mommy until things like this happen. I was so happy.
The nurse and RT waited to do "touch time" until Chris and I were there and we were able to bring Nana Trina and my best friend Valorie. They were so excited to see him without his "Oakleys" on and see his little face. His facial features are so tiny and he hasn't grown into his face yet, but give it some time, he is going to be a true heart breaker. Well we all already think he is.
