Hello everyone! He's had another great week and he's doing so well that we were able to give him his first bath last night. Truthfully we mostly assisted while the nurse showed us what to do for next time, but it was a magical moment. Not only because it was his first one, but we got to hold him like a regular baby for the first time. This picture is me awkwardly holding him while trying to keep him under the heat lamp, and to keep his oxygen tube from putting tension on his neck.
This is the best news of the day (seems I'm thinking that just about every time you post, Lonogg!)
What an awesome family you have. I look forward to these updates every week. I’m so glad to hear continuing good news. I bet you all had a good time on that shopping spree, you and your wife probably really needed that!
I love these updates. He’s lucky to have you both as such wonderful parents!
YAY!!! I freaking love these updates! This is so awesome OP! Tell momma we’re all rooting for you guys!! He’s so perfect!!
I really love your updates. I admire your positivity and mental strength. So glad your little man is doing well.
That's fantastic news about his eyes! It's pretty crazy what they can overcome.
Happy to see how excited you are. Congratulations!
I mainly just lurk daddit but I always look forward to your updates. I wish nothing but the best for you and your family. Due to covid restrictions I couldn’t be in the surgery room for my wife’s c section a couple of weeks ago, and had to wait a week before I could see and hold my son. That 1 week felt so long so I can’t imagine how strong you guys have had to be. You’ll appreciate your time with him so much more and you’ll bond in no time. Best of luck to you all! Looking forward to the next update 🙂
YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE HOLDING 10 POUNDS OF CUT ONIONS!
He’s two whole handfuls now! ❤️
A bath! Held him! 2.5lbs! So happy for you guys to hear this progress - looking forward to the pic of him at home!
Yeeeeeeeah! Bath time is the best time. Can't wait for you to enjoy it at home.
Man I can’t imagine how long and hard this road has been. You are an inspiration.
Man, I just saw this post and went back and read your whole saga. What a ride. He's looking great!! My daughter was born at 26 weeks (incidentally, she her birthday is in January, but her due date was 4/15) and it was *terrifying*. I have never felt more helpless. I hope your son continues to grow stronger and your life can resume.
We’re quite helpless at times but never underestimate the cumulative power of your presence and love as the medical staff do their thing! What they take care of in the natural, you’re taking care of in the supernatural!!!!
He's looking great! My son was born at 2lbs 13oz...he looks so similar. Way to go Idaho.
Yeeeeeeeeeeeeah. Good job with that bath dad. Happy birthday mom.
It was two years ago I was where you are bro. I have vivid flashbacks of the kangaroo time, holding my boy just so, to prevent the cpap from losing pressure. Now I hold him just so he doesn’t let go of the railing as he climbs down off the deck to go up his play set for a slide.
He looks amazing and so strong!
Seeing you hold him warms my heart
Beautiful! Our first spent a few months in the NICU. Such a strange memory. The 2.5lb mark is a great achievement
So awesome to see! Congrats!
So glad things are going so well!! Keep the updates coming. Love seeing the progress your little guy is making. So happy for all of you!
go little fighter!
You probably won’t believe this, but there will come a time when you look back at this picture and will hardly believe he was ever so little.
Hurray for another great week! Love seeing these updates. :)
Your little fighter grew up so much since the first picture you posted! It's great!!!!
These posts have becomw a big part of my week. I am very happy for your family.
So happy to see and read this. Awesome news!
This is so amazing. I love seeing your updates and how well y'all are doing.
Been following all along; this picture warms my heart!!
So good! He is looking fantastic- you guys are being so strong
They're putting on some chonk now, hooray! I'm glad your little one is getting better and stronger by the day 💗💗💗🎉
Good job, Dad.
What a doll! He’s looking so healthy. You must be a proud papa.
We’re still all rooting for you little dude! I’m so glad to hear he’s making great progress!
Squeeze the smol bebe 🥺🥺
Look at that miracle in your hands! Happy birthday to Mom! All 3 of you stay strong and keep up the hard work ❤️
Fantastic update! Every milestone and every "routine" function you can participate in is so important both for child and parent. Hoping the good news continues.
So tiny <3
Happy Early First Father's Day to you!
We're all cheering for you.
Incredible news! The smile in your eyes is worth the world. I’m so proud of your perseverance. Please tell your wife how awesome she is too. HAPPY Birthday! Your son is quite the amazing dude already he will have quite the birth story. 🤗☮️💟🙏🙌
What a precious tiny little human.
These updates are one of the highlights of my week! Is it possible to find out where you guys registered? I desperately want to send something!
Hi law_mom, we always look forward to your comments. I'll talk to my wife and see what she thinks. In general, we've felt that there are other people that need things more than us, and it feels wrong to allow people to buy them for us. However, I think my wife and I will both agree that we want to tell our son that his aunty law mom got him something. I'll get back to you soon, and thank you so much!
How is your mom a baby? What’s going on here?
I love seeing your updates OP, both my hubby and myself are so glad that things are progressing so well for your little bub! Lots of love from Canada
I can’t wait for update 1000 when he is learning to ride a bike.
Look at him! He is really growing big! So happy for you, your wife and the little guy!
I don't know you man but I wish the best to your family. You will get through this challenge.
So tiny! Mine were 10 lbs when born, the concept blows my mind. Not to worry though, your little one will be there soon!
My wife’s birthday was yesterday also! Wishing you the best and looking forward to more positive updates.
Great news and growing strong! Keep going little fighter! ❤️
Thank you for the update! Yay for a good week!
Thank you so much for sharing! These stories are super inspirational and definitely give us something to look forward to.
Wow he’s looking great! ❤️ I’m so happy for you and your family!
