Little Oliver has finally come home after being in the hospital for 12 weeks, he now weighs 5 lbs. 11 ozs. On Wednesday, July 27 th, which was actually his due date, the time had come we have all waited for, his coming home.
They finally got him home around 2 pm that afternoon, he slept the whole time we gathered as a family.
Proud daddy holding Oliver for the first time in his home, so happy all the hospital visits are behind them.
This is my eldest son Justin, he finally got to see and hold Oliver for the first time, he had only seen him through pictures I had taken. He had kepted up with everything going on with him being in the hospital.
Actually Justin just turned 32 years old on Tuesday July 26th. What a great little gift holding his nephew.
I decided we should celebrate with a cake just for Oliver. Actually my husband started cake buying for me when I had Justin, I remember the cake was blue and it said "thanks for the boy" on it. My husband decided this is what it should say on Oliver's cake. Oliver is truly a miracle and a blessing.
Chris is trying to burp Oliver, took his bottle without waking up good, the kid was just out of it. In the background you can see Oliver's other grandmother, Tammy.
No burp yet, just leave me alone, trying to get a little sleep here. Been a long day, Chris said the night before they stayed at the hopital with Oliver in a room, it was so hot, air was not working good and there was a single bed, he tryed to sleep in the chair. And on top of that the little clip on baby monitor kept going off everytime Oliver's breathing got a little rapid. They all had a long night and day.
Wanted to capture a picture of Oliver in his homecoming outfit. Brandi picked out a cute outfit with the tie on it. Love the little booties, looks like sneakers. There is a sneaker story, Brandi loves converse sneakers, has about every color they make. They actually got married in black converse sneakers. Oliver already has a pair of converse sneakers when he gets big enough to wear them.
Here is Katie, Brandi's sister. Katie is due anytime, she is expecting a boy also, his name is going to be Jonah. It will be great that Oliver and Jonah will grow up together.
This is the first time Katie had gotten to see Oliver and hold him. She wanted her and Justin to be the first, since they could not get into the hospital to see Oliver, only the grandparents were on the list, could only have four people. Can't wait to see little Jonah when he is born.
This picture was taken on my anniversary earlier this month, a blessing for me, my two sons. It is so nice that they still turn to each other when they need help, they just live down the road from each other, and now Justin can watch little Oliver grow up and be a part of his life. I am so glad Chris has come to know what it is like to have a son of his own, to watch him grow up and attend all those school award programs, baseball games and finally to see him become a man, what a blessing that will be. I hope everyone has enjoyed seeing little Oliver's homecoming, thank you also for all your support, prayers and emails, they all meant a lot to me over the last 12 weeks. Hugs. Vicky
