Getting to know Ezra
Today I got to spend time all alone with Ezra. Blaine is now sick so he is staying away for now (hopefully we can all get over the sickies before Ez comes home). It was incredible spending some snuggle time with him and getting lost in his new baby smell, sounds, and sweetness. I have loved him for so long. I have hoped for him for so long. Today as I held him, I had this overwhelming feeling of love and gratitude wash over me and I felt as if I've always known this baby and that he has always been mine. As I studied his little face and imagined what he'll look like as he grows, I thought about how his tiny body is housing a great, big spirit. He is one perfect little guy. I feel like the luckiest mom in the world to have both Bella and Ezra and I just hope these next few weeks will hurry on by so that our little Ez can come home and we can just be a family together.
Ezra is gaining weight with just his lipids and TPN. He is now at 3 pounds 15 ounces! Yeah. After he hits 4 pounds, he can get out of his isolette and be in a regular crib in the nursery. This will make things easier for taking pictures! The doctor also told me today that Ezra will not start feedings until he poops first so....PRAY FOR POOP! :)
