If you haven't heard...

I had a baby! Elliott Aaron arrived just over 7 weeks early on November 26th. He's a peanut, weighing in at just 3lbs 4oz at birth, but he's doing fantastic! We have a bit of road to go in the NICU before we're able to take him home, so the husband and I are living at a Fisher House for the next few weeks while the little guy gains weight and works on feeding. 

Posts will probably be sporadic, though I am still reading a bit and have a few guest posts set-up and ready to go. I'm sure you all understand that looking at this face:

is way more fun than blogging! See you soon!

Congratulations to Elliott and his mum and dad.

He looks like a big, strong boy to me and I'm sure he'll be ready to come home soon.

Having had a son arrive 13 weeks early myself, I wish you every best wish for your NICU experience. It isn't always fun, but in my experience the staff are amazing and they do so much for our precious babies.

Take care of yourself as well as Elliott and should you want to talk to another preemie mum, you're welcome to drop me a note at rocaliaATgmailDOTcom.

Congrats! My son was almost six weeks early and was also small. Today at 17, he's 6'3" and on the football and basketball teams. Elliott will be strong and healthy and surrounded by love!
