Okay, I'm finally ready to give everyone an update! Sorry it has been so long. Ezra's been home from the hospital for two weeks now, and we're all doing great! He spent exactly three weeks in the NICU, and we are so happy to have him home.

For your viewing pleasure:


My mom thought I was crazy because I was smiling in between pushing. At that point I was starving and super uncomfortable, so I was really happy to be done with the whole thing.

I gave Ezra a quick kiss before they took him off to the NICU.
(Look how huge my arm is! I was so swollen from being on an IV for so long, I think I gained 10 lbs. in the hospital alone.)

This is how Matt got to see Ezra in the NICU. It's not very fun to watch your child get poked and strapped up to all kinds of equipment.

Ezra's off the ventilator and I got to hold him for the first time.

Daddy holding Ezra for the first time.

He didn't get to wear clothes very often in the hospital, so we always liked to take pictures of him when the nurses dressed him.

Apparently this was some kind of luxury hotel Ezra was staying in; the charge was $600 a night... Thank goodness for Health Insurance.

Mema called this his "party hat" The IV's kept blowing out his little veins, so they tried putting one in his head.

Ezra in his sweet bilirubin mask.

Ezra can sleep in any position.

Finally going home from the hospital!

Yay!

Matt with Ezra wearing his "I LOVE DADDY" pj's.

The boys hanging out.

Dressing up babies is way funner than dressing up dolls!

Ezra loves tummy time!

"All the babes want me."

So, there you go! Someone asked me about his weight and height. When he was born he was HUGE for being almost 6 weeks early. He was 5 lb 13 oz. and 19 inches long. When we went to the doctors after he got out of the hospital he weighed 7 lb 7 oz. and supposedly 21 inches (2 inches is a lot to grow in 3 weeks).

We have lots more photos on our photo gallery. If you're interested in looking at more photos just leave a comment with your email, and I'll send you the link to our gallery.
