Flashback Friday - I Gotta Wear Shades

It's time to resurrect Flashback Friday... with a twist.

From here on out, I'll be posting a flashback picture of Jack. But it won't be just any picture. The criteria I'm setting for myself are as follows: it must be a picture from his 119 day NICU stay.  Truthfully, I haven't really looked through Jack's NICU picture files in quite a long time, so this will be neat.

 Without further ado:

Here's Jack, rockin' some pretty sweet shades to protect his eyes from the jaundice lamp. This picture was taken during the first week of his life. I've always thought it was pretty cute.
Pin It!

They are amazing. Ours were plain old boring white ones which kept on falling off.

Felix's health visitor came for the first time today and she talked about whether we would like to meet parents for support. I mentioned that I read blogs which help us and keep us positive. She didn't know what a blog was, so I showed her yours. Yours was the first premature baby blog I read and looking at Jack and his handsome smile always kept us positive.

The health visitor said "Wow, that truly is a miracle baby".

Thanks for sharing all your stories and inspiring others.

We had the same shades. I have an idea for you since you are so great at photography anyway. It would be awesome to do comparison photos along with your flashback Fridays. Like a picture of jack wearing shades now! That would be really cute. I'm going to have to try to locate our tiny shades.

You have the most amazing pictures. We could never get this close to Samuel in his early days or he would have episodes. In fact, he would have an episode if we even looked in the direction of his isolette!!! Love this so much and the one of him holding your finger.
