at the beginning of 2009, we thought differently about August.
it seemed so far away. and i envisioned being the worried father-to-be, bag packed and placed strategically by the door. responding to my wife’s every twinge with great anticipation.
well, it didn’t turn out exactly that way. while most of the past twelve weeks has been about worrying, it’s now being replaced by anticipation – we are in a countdown until Justin can come home.
Carrie has been staying up at Dartmouth for the past two weeks, working all day, every day, on getting him to be able to nurse. he’s also gotten consistently better with Oxygen – they only give him any if he needs it while eating.
and as of this writing, his weight is up to 2,915 grams, or six pounds, seven ounces (almost 1/2 stone, to our friends in England). all this of course is rambling, the pictures speak for his progress far better than i could.
