The family made it home yesterday with somewhat mixed emotions - anxious, tired, and excited. We've already called the doctor once because of Kalen's breathing (I've gotten quite good with a flash light and I know now what a booger looks like in a baby's nose and also how to take it out...ahaha), and revisited the lactation nurse since yesterday morning. Everything is of course excellent. Kalen has gained two ounces since yesterday (they hope for one ounce every day - so of course God and Kalen are proving themselves worthy of our praise). Naomi and Kalen are both sleeping now and I thought I'd post yet another picture (I'm sure you guys don't mind). We learned a few soothing techniques before we left the hospital. I'm hoping that the combination of this position (picture above) along with shushing will continue to bode well for me as it is one of Kalen's favorite positions (can you tell?! :) ). Life is absolutely blissful and I can not tell you the amount of pride I feel as I glance over at my son as I write this. I want to thank you all for your prayers - they were all felt and answered in the delivery room. If you get a chance to call or post a note on this blog, please tell Naomi how proud you are of her for her strength and patience during the delivery and as a new mom. I know she will tell you it wasn't her but God, yet we all know that it takes a special woman to be filled by His strength and trust in His mighty plan. I love you all, and may God bless each and everyone of you.
