We had another adventure today. We decided to make our own squash for Gray. We had a few speed bumps with the blender but in the end it was great. I roasted the squash in the oven so we wouldn’t lose any nutrients to boiling it. And then the handy... Continue reading

Today was a huge milestone in our house. Today Gray finally got to try his first taste of solid food. It’s huge not just because he’s growing up but because after 8 months we get to try him on something other than just me. 3 months ago I didn’t know... Continue reading

Self-control and exhaustion do not seem to mix. I started back to work last week, full time, and Gray has been going through a growth spurt, I have not slept much at all. So my self-control for things like ketchup chips has gone out the window. I’ve gotten to the... Continue reading

Gray and I have had quite the breastfeeding journey. With how early he was they had no expectation that he would even know how to suck, especially nurse. I remember the first time they let us try. He was about 2 days old, and since he was doing so well,... Continue reading

Well we made it! After our time at McMaster our goal was to make it to 32 weeks. Now Gray has an immune system and has a lot better chance in the outside world. We saw Dr Newell in Guelph last week, and she shared the goal of 34 weeks... Continue reading

A week ago we woke up in the L&D ICU, wondering if our son would have a January birthday rather than a March one. This week we woke up at home in our own room in our own bed, and very thankful that our son hasn’t arrived. After a week... Continue reading

After a long day at McMaster, we got GREAT news. We’ve been doing the right things, and although we’re not out of the woods, they aren’t concerned about Grayson coming early! PTL My numbers have come back up into an okay range. I am still off work until Gray arrives,... Continue reading

Heather, The best thing you can do is just let her know your there to listen if she ever needs to talk. Don't ever tell her you understand or know how she feels or can imagine to know how she feels. But just be there. Don't make the usual comments that Amber mentioned. And really, don't let everything revolve around it. help her take her mind off it. Thanks for reading. I hope you keep reading, and check out Amber's blog! Jac

While in the NICU our paediatric cardiologist commented that so many people take pregnancy and birth for granted. This has resounded in my head for months and I thought while I was away on vacation I wold take this time to introduce you to the other side of pregnancy and... Continue reading
