Our boy is 2 months old

Postby cmccaffrey » Wed Apr 04, 2012 04:30 pm

I just thought I would share how much our little guy has grown. He was born at 38 weeks and 2 days and NO preeclampsia... he weighed 6lbs 3oz and now he almost weighs 11lbs!

Looking at him makes me feel so overjoyed because I can see so many of his brother's features in him. You women are so close! Prayers go out to you and your little ones for safe arrivals!

This is a photo from his birth announcement...

Here he is chunking it around...

And here is Noah showing off his smiles...

He is so adorable. Our son reminds me of our first son as well. It makes me both sad and happy at the same time. I am so grateful (as I'm sure you are too!) to have a living child after all that we've been through.
Our first son was born and passed in Feb of 2010. Born at 29 weeks due to HELLP and passed due to NEC. We miss him every day. :~(

Our second son was born at 39 weeks gestation in Nov of 2011. No HELLP or pre-e! Took LDA starting at week 12 and went off of it at week 38!
