In the middle of the night Amon decided to bring his A-game for eating…and I was over the top joyful. He ate more in the middle of the night than he did all day yesterday. So much, the doctors decided to let him have formula starting at 9 this morning and there was even some talk of us maybe going home this weekend. Knock on wood!!!! Formula is becoming our new best friend.
I’m happy to say we have been puke free the entire day. And his picc line isn’t even hooked up to anything right now. Holla! It was a night of not a lot of sleep, but it was a good night. Here’s video I took this morning of Amon…he gets excited when he sees the tiny bottle come out now. Dang you uncentered video…I will figure you out one day.
This hospital has been amazing and this entire journey has been crazy. I know Amon won’t remember, so I have been documenting the best I can for him with his globe messages and polaroid pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. I cannot wait to tell him about what a fierce little guy he has been. He amazes me.
Some of you asked about what kind of polaroid I have. I have the Fuji Instax…it’s ginormous, but I love it. True love.
And it was 2 months ago today that I landed in Nashville with Amon. What a joy it has been. What a blessing it has been. What a whirlwind it has been.
So thankful he is our son. Oh my goodness…I just could never ever ever accurately describe how grateful we are for this sweet boy.
In some down time at the hospital I have been gearing up for our Random Acts of Kindness in December again. My 30th birthday is coming up soon and it will be my first birthday without Mom so I decided to cram my day full of random acts of kindness too. I’m even going to pull Harper out of school so she can participate with us. I think it will be a grand birthday. Also I would love some new ideas for our Christmas version…I want to change it up some from LAST YEARS LIST. Would love for you to leave a comment with some new ideas. Multiple minds are better than just one.
So that’s it for today. It’s been such an encouraging day. Thank you for praying for us. Thank you for praying for Amon. And Josh and the big wee Kelleys will be here any minute now with Chick-fil-a. Hooray!
