Kangaroo Loving and Diaper Changes
Well today was a very surprising day!
My sister Robin and her husband Scott came in town and were able to visit with sweet Liam. My other brother in law Brian came to visit Liam for the first time as well.
Since we had so many visitors we went in shifts and I let Clint and Robin go visit Liam first while I went to pump (that's a whole other story...breast feeding). Well turns out that this new breast feeding mommy forgot a pump part so I wasn't able to pump at the hospital.
I went back to the waiting room with my brother in laws while Robin came out and told me to go in next. This wasn't our "schedule" so I of course thought something was wrong because that's what mothers do...worry and freak out!
Well it was a GOOD surprise! I walk in and Clint has Liam up against his chest. What! I didn't know we were starting kangaroo care today! I got so excited when it was my turn to hold precious Liam skin to skin for the first time.
It didn't last very long because his oxygen was dropping (they think he was just over stimulated) but the few minutes I had were priceless. I can't wait to hold him again.
Also, during my failed attempt to pump at the hospital Clint had the pleasure of changing not one but TWO diapers! He even got peed on...teehee. I have to admit I'm a bit jealous, even of the part about being peed on!
