Gator-boy began life 5 weeks early weighing 5lbs and 5oz, he was 16 1/2 inches long.
moments after birth
off the ventilator, still with a feeding tube
Mommy and me in the NICU trying to learn to eat and stay warm.
Mommy's taking my temperature in the NICU
Mommy's holding my hand.. see my pants?? That was so they could strap me in the car seat while still on the monitors for 2 hours for a "car seat study" to make sure I'd survive the ride home.
I failed 2 car seat studies that day and ended up going home in not A) the convertible carseat that brother had used OR B) the infant "bucket" seat Mommy ran out and bought that day just to be able to get her boy home ....., but rather I got to ride in a CAR BED for the first 2 months of my life, and Mommy had a garage full of carseats there for awhile.
This is a carbed. (this is NOT me and Mommy, I was much smaller than that in my carbed)
Here I am finally home and in my bassonet. Mommy musta stole all my covers for the pic cuz she never let me go without being bundled up.
Here I am at my Birthday party, all grown up....a big 3 years old!!
And, I got this cool idea from another March baby.....
