He's here!

Remember our new friends,  who stayed here while the mom was in the hospital, trying to keep her 29 week baby from being delivered?

Well... the baby is here (and I got to meet him yesterday!)

His name is Joshua and he was born on April 6, at 1:00 pm, weighing 3.2 pounds (just shy of 32 weeks gestation).    He just couldn't wait to see this big world and meet his Mama!

Though tiny, he is fiesty and was breathing room air on his own and scored very high on his Apgar tests!

He was in the NICU for about five days and is now in the Special Care unit (still pretty sterile and in an incubator most of the time, but a little more laid back than the NICU).

He was snuggled up, sleeping on Amy's chest the whole time yesterday, so I didn't get any pictures, but Amy sent me this one that she had taken in the last few days.   I LOVE it!

Look how tiny he is compared to her hand!

He is soo precious!    It was so wonderful to be able to meet him already!   Amy is such a gem and an honor to know.
