Another Weigh In

Hey everyone just wanted to let you know what Porter weighs this week. I took him in yesterday and he weighs 5 pounds 8 ounces. He gained 5 ounces in a week! I was very happy about that. I think my days of him sleeping all the time are over. He is acting more and more like a newborn. His latest thing is at nights he likes to stay up late and when I try to lay him down when he does go to sleep he wakes up. The only way he will sleep is on my chest! I have been sleeping the recliner with him on me. At least he will sleep for a few hours this way. Hopefully before long he will sleep better in his bed. This morning he peed all over my arm. I have been doing so good with that, but he got me today. Things are great! Have a good day!

Another Weigh In

Ronni and Carlie took Porter to his weekly weigh-in at the Doc's office and he is now tipping the scales at 5 pounds and 3 ounces. We are glad to see he is gaining weight well enough. Ronni promised she would take pictures tonight and get them watch out for those.

I called in sick today so I could rest and get rid of this very mean cold I managed to let take me down. It's been a rough one for sure...but considering I only get one a year, they are all rough.

Off to get us some dinner.

Porter in some new pictures!

Here are some comparisons of Porter! These first 2 pictures were taken with my good friend Ali's baby Hannah. Her baby is 5 weeks older than Porter (but full term) we couldn't believe the difference in holding them. It was funny to see how much smaller Porter was. Hannah was so cute! I have gotten use to Porter and his size, it was kind of weird holding a bigger baby. We had a good time with them!

We layed Porter down by one of Carlie's doll's. He is still smaller than the doll. It just shows his size. When I took him home he weighed 4 pounds 10 ounces and then yesterday I took him to get weighed again and he was 4 pounds 13 1/2 ounces. I was so glad he had gained some weight! I take him in once a week to get him weighed so I will let you all know his weight. Enjoy the pictures!

Pictures of kids!

Here are some pictures that I took this morning with the kids. Carlie was so excited to hold Porter and did a really good job. She sat and held him for a while. They are my 2 little helpers. They love helping and help me out so much already. We will take some more soon. (hopefully some family pictures of all of us) Have a good day.

Carlie, Porter, and Maci
This is my favorite cause Carlie looks so scared to be holding Porter.

Porter is home!

I wanted to let everyone know that we are home!!!!! I am SO happy to have left the hospital and to be able to take Porter with me! I can't get over how little he is. When we took the monitors off of him and I could hold him it was so nice. He is so fun to hold. He curls his legs up and looks like a little ball of baby. I take him to his pediatrician tomorrow for a check up. I will have to take him there probably once a week to get him weighed and see how he is doing, but I would do that any day over him having to stay at the hospital. He weighs 4 pounds 10 ounces, down 3 ounces from when he was born. All the doctors and nurses can't believe he is already leaving. They kept telling us that this isn't normal. He is our miracle baby, Im so grateful that he has done as well as he has. He is a strong and healthy boy. Carlie and Maci went to my sister Niki's house down in Las Vegas on Sunday and they are coming home tomorrow. I called Carlie and told her I would be home with Porter when they get home and she was excited. It will be so nice to have all my kids home together and not have to be running back and forth to the hospital. Thanks to all of you who have prayed for us and been there. It's truly a miracle Porter is home. Life is so precious, you never know what is going to happen. I have learned to be grateful for all that I have. I have a wonderful husband who has been so good through all of this, my kids who are all healthy and strong. I have the best family! For the power of prayer and for my husband who was able to give a priesthood blessing to me and to Porter when he was born. Things are going to work out fine. I am so happy for that. We will keep adding pictures and updates on Porter. Thanks again to all of you.
