Holding Our Little Man

Well, we have some more good news about Eric. Tuesday and Wednesday were the first days that Troy and I finally got to hold him. Troy graciously let me go first and I got to do "Kangaroo Care" (they have you put him inside your shirt, skin to skin, for warmth) for almost 3 hours. It was pure Heaven on Earth!! Eric did so well laying on both of us it was hard to let him go.

They have weened him way down on his ventilator and have almost tripled his feedings now. He will be a chubby little Jacob Jr. in no time (well, maybe not quite that fast, he now weighs 1 lb. 13oz.)!!!
