A mama's hormones are a funny thing. Our little Everett is healthy and happy, with only a mild case of jaundice. (Not uncommon for babies born a little early) But seeing his little naked body laying there under those blue lights, all alone in the nursery - even if he had his luxurious spa goggles on - completely broke my heart. Luckily, the nurses got so tired of having a tearful mama sitting by his nursery cart, they let us take him back to our room. And then last night- take him home with a special lighted blanket for babies with jaundice, called a Bili Blanket.
So happy he's home - our little blue baby. Currently upstairs fast asleep, all lit up like a mini avatar. I've never been so tired. But never so fulfilled. Or so in love.
