Baby Rhonda at 2 weeks, in her Sunday Best~

Baby Rhonda at 2 weeks, in her Sunday Best~

Tiny One is 2 weeks old! She is now tipping the scales at 3 lbs, 5 ounces, and has graduated to Preemie formula through her feeding tube. Pretty soon she’ll be on regular formula and then the bottle~

The nurses dressed her Sunday for her visit with Mommy and Daddy. CJ said there was a nice little surprise in the incubator with Baby Girl, a miniature baby ripple afghan, no bigger than a hand towel, all done in pastels.

Mommy says her tummy is feeling much better, only a small amount of discomfort. She was able to drive the car by herself on Friday, then she and Ryan spent the entire weekend running around, doing errands, taking care of the apartments and other fun stuff. She sounds good, and hopes to be speaking with her Therapist in the next few days, to sort her New Mommy Feelings.

She’s doing great, is still on BP meds. for a while longer, but definitely feels  an emptiness without her baby now.

    Hello all, it’s CJ. Bear with me I’m going to cry the whole typing time. How can someone be so happy about the greatest miracle in life to happen to ME and then get these dang feelings bringing me down too? No worries I have a wonderful therapist, but ultimately it should only be bringing my sweet Rhonda home that I feel is going to help me the most. She has moved up in formula and in diapers, so weighs 3.6 oz. They say they don’t usually disappoint in having to actually wait as long as her due date to come home but they don’t get hopes up. But I can tell, I could tell she was going to be early even though I’d never been thru it before. As most of you know, my mom lives 5 hours away but I must say she is doing her very best to be there for me. We talk almost every day and she can calm me down at tough moments. We are so close. I will see her very soon and she will be able to see my baby girl. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. It has to be all these that have made Rhonda as well as she is and she is going to be.

    Lots of love to all!

    *HUG* congrats on the little cutie.. I know a lot of people who make things for preemies.. I used to make TONS of booties for them around here too.. and I’ve even made hospital gowns for a 1.5 pound preemie (open in front so they’d have full access)

    She’s a doll even with the tubes. I feel bad for her mommy, it has to be hard to not have her baby with her all the time.

    I am glad to hear that both mommy and Rhonda are doing better.

    Oh isn’t she sweet! I cannot believe she only weighs that amount, I cannot picture such a tiny baby. I hope she grows strong and healthy.

    OH how beautiful baby Rhonda is. I am sorry I missed this event earlier. It brought back memories for me thinking about how hard it is to leave your baby in the Nicu while they are fattening up and learning to breath. I cried a lot missing them.
    Preemies have a way of catching up so quickly. This will all be a faded memory someday.
    Best wishes to Mommy and a hug from me to her. I know some of what she feels.
