He's Gaining Weight!!

Yay Sid! He's finally gained back his lost weight...he's back up to 1lb 8oz! I can't tell you all how excited that makes Jeremy and I. He's also eating and digesting all the breast milk that they are giving him.

Today I got to see Sidney get a bath -- well, a sponge bath really. The minute they took that diaper off the little stinker started peeing all over the place. He felt the freedom of the open air. lol. It was so cute. He's so tiny that the nurse used a soft bristled toothbrush to brush his hair! Adorable.

I also had the privilege of holding Sidney for a few minutes. Didn't get to hold him close, but at least I got to hold him in my hands. It was so special. He looked up at me with his beautiful eyes and I just knew that he realized that I was his mommy. He even got comfortable enough that he started to drift off to sleep in my hands. What a moment. I'll never forget today...


  1. It was sooooo amazing to watch my first grandchild get a bath. It was a moment that I will hold in my heart forever. It is a shame for those who are unable to see Sidney because his photos and videos do not do him justice……..he is absolutely beautiful!!!

  2. So cute about the open air part, haha. So glad you could hold your little man in your hands.

  3. this just melts my heart. Jessie and Jeremy, your baby is amazing and you inspire me as parents:) hugs and love from Michigan.

  4. Sidney, our first grandchild, is a beautiful little guy. We where there for the first week of his life but sadly we had to return too soon to Pennsylvania. We are overjoyed that he is now gaining weight, eating and bonding with his mom and dad. We feel sad that we can't share all these milestones in person but we do share in all the joy and happiness from a distance. We send all our love to Sidney, Jessica and Jeremy every day and can't wait until we will be able visit again.
