Mommy Changed My Diaper for the First Time!!

Today was super special for me. I got to change Sid's diaper for the first time. It's crazy how something as mundane as changing a diaper was such a big deal for me. It was the most wonderful experience of my life. I got to take his temperature (a perfect 98.2 degrees) too. The nurse warned me that he wasn't going to like getting his temp taken and that he would squirm. But mommy to the rescue...he didn't even flinch. It was like he knew that I was his mom and that I would never do anything to hurt him. He was so calm. Even when I changed his diaper and wiped his tiny butt clean...not a squirm. He really loves his mommy.

Sid had to be put back on the ventilator today; his little body was just too tired to breathe on his own along with trying to grow. It's ok though because now he can focus all this energy on getting stronger. This time on the ventilator shouldn't last long. Since he was born 8 days ago, he's only had to be on it 3 times, and each time was only for a few hours. So we have confidence this won't last long.

He's still not eating mommy's breast milk yet, but that's ok too. We found out this morning that his belly is getting better each day and he may be able to start back on milk tomorrow. Cross your fingers!

My boy is definitely a little angel. He's got the sweetest face that I've ever seen. In this picture, you'll see that he wasn't too happy with mommy cause she let too much light into his incubator. This is Sid making his "you're making me angry" face. I love this little guy.


  1. looks like we're going 2 need some head measurements 4 a custom pair of oakleys. we need 2 keep the pictures coming but can't have our little angel squinting. lots of thoughts & prayers coming ur way with great-grandma sandberg spearheading the way. lots of love

  2. He is so precious! I hope you are able to pump your milk and all is going well with that! Brewers yeast supplements, Guinness and a tea called Mama's Milk have helped me beef up my supply.
