Whoa Eric, you must have been a good boy.

The newest guitar hero!!

Merry Christmas!!

Yes, Jacob is riding the vacuum!? Sometimes we wonder about him. I think he is trying to distract himself from all the gifts he can't open yet.
We hope you all have a great holiday and safe travels wherever you go.
Merry Christmas!
Love, Troy, Tracey, Jacob, Eric & Jack

Wide Awake

Eric was bright eyed tonight so we had to snap some pics. He had his Dr. apt. Friday and doesn't need his oxygen anymore!! He is so happy to be rid of it. No more tape stuck to his chubby little cheeks.

O.K. Back To Sleep

Our tuckered out 8 pound bundle!

We are a little behind on pictures, but we hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!! I know we have plenty to be thankful for here!! Eric is over 7 pounds now and Jacob is talking up a storm. I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner. Thanks Mom for all your help while you were out. We loved having you!!

Jacob just stopped by to say "Hi"

The first thing Jacob does when he wakes up is to find the "Bebe" and sweetly tell him "hi". He is so gentle with him and luckily doesn't touch him!!

Eric is up to 4lbs. 12.1 oz.

Eric came home today!!! I roomed in with him last night at the hospital and he did wonderful. He ate very well and gained some more weight and didn't have a single episode. He came home on a monitor and oxygen. We got home around 5:30 and he has been doing great!! Jacob adores him and does a great job of keeping him awake for his feedings. It is so wonderful to be home again!!

Huge Day for Us!!!

I don't have any pictures to add but I do have amazing news! Eric is out of the NNICU and down to Level 2 Special Care. He could be home as early as the end of next week. He has been solely nursing and bottle feeding the last 4 days and has done great. His feeding tube came out 3 days ago. He is still on his nasal cannula but needs very little oxygen. Eric has really turned the corner. Prayers answered and fingers crossed he will finally get to meet big brother soon. We can't wait to get him home and get settled into a new routine.
