more photos from home

Jonah looked so cute (and hilarious) with his arms sticking straight out, I could barely get him hooked in because I was laughing so hard.


Jonah's first construction delay. No worries. He was only screaming bloody murder in the back seat. By all means, put up your stupid "slow" sign.
Deac and Jonah meet for the first time. Deac has been basically indifferent to Jonah, although every time I talk in my baby voice, Deac comes over thinking I'm talking to him. Poor thing. I'm sure he'll soon realize he's no longer top dog.

Jonah on drugs (did not really have the sedation effect we were hoping for last night, as you can see). Mommy without make-up (a luxury these days).


Tummy time with dad.

OH MY GOODNESS!! Can he get any cuter? Im so glad to see you are getting out with him. I hate it when the babies are screaming in the car. Your in the middle of trafic and there isnt much you can do. So stressful. Im so happy he is home and doing so well.

Renata said...

Honestly that post gave me quite the laugh. (especially the sedation effect pic) Jonah is so cute and i'm glad Deacon isn't to jealous. Hope the adjustment is going well. =)

Patrice, he is so beautiful! Numerous times throughout the day thoughts of Jonah flow into my mind. I have been praying for a smooth transition as well as for peace for everyone. Not to mention healing for Sweet Boy. I keep telling God, the doctors may say words like "no cure", but you don't know such words, Father, you can even raise the dead! Thank you for sharing those pictues. He is perfect.
Love,
Erin in VA

drea said...

He is SOO...cute. Thanks for the updates. I do have a quesiton, if you ever read this comment. You said once, there are varying degrees of EB, to what degree is his and will these blisters heal up and stop poping up? Or is it ongoing?

You are in our prayers, I know that Jesus is the ultimate healer, and we will pray that he does just that!

Blessings, young mommy, enjoy your time with your son, he is so beautiful.

Heather said...
