He's Home

Going Home Outfit

Leaving the NICU

Saying good bye to his nurses


First feeding at home

In his swing

Nicholas made it home! It has been an exciting day and so far so good. He spent 163 days in the hospital and gained 9 pounds and grew 7 inches. We have done 2 feedings and already had to change his outfit because he sit up. He loves his swing. The animals have been good. Jasper watches him and is curious but very gentle. Bella has already given him tons of kisses on his feet. She is a little hyper right now but hopefully she gets used to him soon. Sydney, Zorro and Zoe are not very interested. Our monitor went off once because his lead came off but he has been fine. We have our first appointment with the pediatrician tomorrow morning.


  1. YAY!!! I am happy to hear he is home.

  2. Welcome to the world of cul de sacs and animals.

  3. What wonderful news! So glad Nicholas' homecoming turned out to be a positive experience for everyone - animals included. Love to all.

  4. John and I are so happy Nicholas is finally home! We are glad the animals have welcomed him and that things are going well.

  5. I am so happy for all of you! Tears of joy are flowing now! Kisses to Baby Nicholas!

  6. Greetings from CA! I'm so happy for you guys!!! Nicholas looks so sweet in his swing. I hope you have a good first night with him.

  7. Welcome home Nicholas!! I hope you all enjoy the first night without too many alarms.

  8. I'm so happy for all of you. Now the joys of parenthood really kick in! I hope you'll keep us posted on Nicholas' progress now that he's home. I've been following his story all along.
    Congratulations -
