Yesterday was a glorious day! Happy Mother's Day!

I took this picture of mom doing TKM on Jimmie during my last visit to see him at the hospital on Friday. I had to share that dimple.

Driving Home

Jimmie is happy to be going home!

Home Sweet Home.

Jimmie's room- a work in progress.

Grandma Kathy cooking- YUM!

Grandpa Rod holding Jimmie for the first time.

Grandpa and Grandma Gravitt love that boy!

Kathy holding Jimmie.

Jimmie loves being at home. He is eating better than he ever has before. Rachael only slept 1 hour for worry that he would pull his oxygen cannula out in the night. Pray for her to work out details like that so she can rest in peace.

What a victorious Mother's Day it is for Rachael. Thank you Father!

    ....How precious are the pictures and videos of our little guy. We are so happy that Rodney and Kathy can finally rejoice in holding a grandchild. The mercies of the Lord are new everyday and He will keep blessing Justin and Rachael with peace and joy...Love you lots!! Uncle Greg and Aunt Maria

  9. i am so so so happy for you guys! and, rachael, you will literally drive yourself crazy worrying about the cannula. i just got to the point where i was like, if she pulls it off, i will put it back in when i feed her, most of the time she pulls it out to where it is just sitting on her lip, so rest assured he will still be getting some air, it just won't be right in his nose..still better than nothing! hopefully he won't be on it too long. Maddy has had it for almost 6 weeks now, and you get used to it! i am so glad that you can finally start your lives with Jimmie at home! Praise GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. How wonderful! Sing His praises!

  11. RACHEL, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!! You sure got the best gift ever!!!Jimmie is adorable, I love the video, to see Jimmie in action-how fun!!!Enjoy your little man and please make/post more videos and pics!
    Misha and family...

  12. That video is cute. Love when they start sucking on their hands when they're hungry. Praying still!

    Welcome home!

  13. happy mothers day!!!
    It is so wonderful to see Jimmie at home. I am sure things will settle soon and you will get a mommy jimmie routine. Just enjoy every moment. I am sure he loved the fresh air and sunlight, if nothing else that will help his little spirits! I cant wait to see him and squeeze the little baby juices out of him (but I will...wait)
    We love ya, and rejoice with you
    Natalie and the boys!
