I thought we would have to wait a little longer. But I was wrong thankfully! Today I finally got to hold little Mason. It was worth the wait too. I can’t believe I waited this long! I have been missing out by not holding this sweet little boy until now!!
I didn’t plan to hold Mason today. My best friend Carly was in town (a surprise) and my aunt Teresa was here too. I was planning to spend some time with them then go back to the hospital tonight to try and hold James again. See, I thought James was the only baby we could hold right now because Mason and Logan are on the jet ventilator still. And we can only get the babies out once a day because getting them out is a huge ordeal and it’s somewhat stressful for the babies. I was talking to Jesse (our awesome nurse practitioner) about the babies and I mentioned that when Mason was ready to get out of his isolette (that’s the medical term for their beds) that I really wanted to hold him. No one knew that I hadn’t held Mason still. So Jesse made it happen right then! Obviously Jesse is my favorite person ever today.
Mason was so sweet! He laid on my chest and was almost perfectly still and content. Me too! He opened his eyes and looked around for a while at first. Then he went to sleep. I could hold him forever! Like with James and Logan, I didn’t want to give him back! I can’t wait til they get bigger and I can hold them whenever I want! These are going to be three spoiled babies!!
