Flashback Friday - First Glimpse



Besides being quickly wheeled by after my c-section, this is a picture of the first time I remember going down the OB hall to visit Jack. My first, up close glimpse of him. I was feeling well enough to be out of my room and comfortable enough to go in the wheel chair. A couple things that stick out to me in this picture: 1) how swollen I was from pre-eclampsia fluid retention, and 2) the little blanket on my chest, tucked down into my hospital gown. I was sleeping with that little blanket and then leaving it with Jack so he could at least have my scent with him.

And of course, I notice how tiny Jack was. Wow.
Pin It!

I can't believe how tiny he was. So sweet. Such a miracle.

The tissue box in your lap stands out to me....what a special/heartwrenching moment. :)

How wonderful that you have a photo of that moment....although I know it must have been difficult.

What a wonderful moment! And that's a neat idea about the blanket.
