Pictures From Home

Patrice asked if I could post some pictures of the day. They started dressing changes about an hour ago and from upstairs it sounds like it's going pretty well so far. Not sure if Patrice will have a chance to get on here tonight but please continue to pray for Jonah's transition home.

Praise God...what a beautiful sight!

kristen said...

Praise the Lord!! I will stay in prayer for sweet Jonah and your family!

dg darling said...

Yeah!!!! I am so happy for you!!!! I just had a question. I was wondering if being buckled into a car seat or being in a swing and all that makes things worse. How do you help it be less stressful on cute Jonah? I guess I am just curious about the logistics of it all...Anyway, congratulations and the prayers will continue. This time for an easy transition!

Kim from San Antonio, Texas said...

Oh, I am so glad that you were able to post some pictures. I have been thinking about you all day and the pictures look so awesome! I will continue to pray for a smooth transition for both baby and mommy and daddy! Enjoy your baby boy!

I am SO happy for you that Jonah is home. Your son is so beautiful, I check in every day to see how he is doing, and I'm so glad he is home with his terrific parents.

Astrid said...

Praise the Lord! My goodness, he is so beautiful!!! The skin on his face looks great! Congratulation s on your homecoming. Always praying for you guys.

Melinda said...

He looks absolutely wonderful!

Alyson said...

God bless you guys!!! I am beyond thrilled for you!!!

I know what a relief it is to FINALLY bring your little miracle home.... It can also be a little scary, because you are so used to having the doctors and nurses right there to assure you that everything is going well.....I remember how anxious I was to see the nurse the next morning.....I just needed her to tell me that we were all on the right track....

If you ever need anyone to talk to, please feel free e-mail me!!

p.s. Jonah is sooooooo precious!!!

We are still praying for you guys!!

Awesome news. Hope you get some sleep tonight, and don't stay up all night looking at his sweet face.

Continuing to pray that everything goes easy with the transition.

I never knew a family I don't know could grab my heart like you guys. Thank you for continuing to share your amazing story.

langhofflove said...

PRAISE THE LORD! AHH! I am so excited! THanks so much for posting pictures!

Laura said...

I found your site on Cole's foundation and have been following your journey since. I have never posted before but felt led to do so tonight. I am so happy for you that you have your little boy home with you. I can see on your faces how happy you all are. I can remember as a new mom how excited and terrified I was at the same time when we brought our new baby home. I can only imagine that you feel that way as well only on a much larger scale considering Jonah's special needs. I just want you to know that you are and will do a wonderful job because you are his mother and no one can take care of their baby like a mother can. Have faith in God and faith in yourself. You (and your husband) were chosen to be Jonah's parents for a reason - God always knows what he is doing. I pray that God will continue to bless you and your precious family in a mighty way.

WELCOME HOME JONAH
WELCOME HOME BABY BOY!!!!!

I sit here sobbing and called my entire family (all 6) into the living room to watch me cry cause I couldn't talk so I pointed at the computer because I wanted them all to see what we have been praying so hard for. Of course my 11 year old has seen many pictures but the rest of the family is just now joining the picture party.
How wonderful to see YOU MOM and YOU DAD with your beautiful baby boy in YOUR HOME..... CONGRATULATIONS and I will continue to pray for healing.

Psa 106:1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for He is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

What a wonderful answer to prayer!!! We are so happy for your family. We live in Wiston Salem with our baby boy turning 5 months old this week. Our church and family have been praying for strength and healing for Jonah! Thank you for sharing these wonderful pictures. It is always an encouragement to know that God loves us and that He does hear our requests! As the days go on and you care for Jonah please keep these verses in mind:

Jhn 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Hbr 13:5
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Hbr 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

May God give you wisdom and strength as you care for Jonah!

He is so beautiful & GOD is so GOOD!!I love than next to last picture where Jonah is looking directly into his mommy's eyes. I hope the transition went smoothly & the everyone go some sleep last night. I am praying that the visit to the doctor this morning brought more good news.

I will continue to pray for all of you manys times daily (were you up at 4:30 this am) because I woke up & had the 3 of you on my mind, so I just stopped & prayed for you then I went back to sleep.

Jonah is so adorable, I have 2 children myself at almost 25 yr old boy & a 23 girl girl, but I must say Jonah is the most adorable baby I have seen in a long, long time. He looks so sweet & you can tell he is loved.

Take care, get some rest for yourself because Jonah needs a healthy mom & dad to keep up with him.

Love in Christ,

Wanda Wilkinson

Today in chapel with the 3-to-5 year olds, our preschool coordinator showed them pictures of Jonah and told them about his sensitive skin, and how special it is that he is finally home from the hospital. We've been praying for him, and are so thankful that we're seeing pictures of him at his house!

How beautiful is this???? My heart is so overwhelmed! Woo Hoo! My cup just runneth over!!!
Good for you guys. Woo Hoo. Jonah looks more content today than i've ever seen him, give him time, this little boy will settle in like an old blanket in no time flat! He's a trooper and we continue to pray for him and for you both! Robin Shoemaker and the family :)

He's so beautiful! Prayers prayers prayers that things just go up from here!

Laura said...

I am praying for your little guy! I am a car seat technician so I wanted to pass along to you that the insert you have in his infant seat is not safe - you should remove it. Generally, anything that did not come in the car seat box should not be used. Be careful to ensure the chest clip is at armpit height and the harness is snug enough - if you can pinch the webbing together at the collarbone horizontally, it is too loose. If you need to add support around him in the seat, you can only use rolled up receiving blankets - that is the only thing that techs will sign off on. Hope this helps and I hope your little man continues to improve.

The Nicholsons said...

Congratulations!! Jonah is so beautiful and he is so lucky to have such wonderful parents. I hope he continues to improve each day!
