We got kicked out of our hospital’s NICU (once you outgrow size 1 diapers you are forced to graduate) and landed in the pediatric ward.

I miss the coziness and attentive care of our little NICU, but one perk about the pediatric ward is…

They are a little less strict about sibling visits.

Guess who got to finally meet his little brother??

After 3 long months…Checking to make sure his brother has all ten toes.Β  This is important.This little guy has found his new best friend.

  7. Loved this sweet post! The Happy Buddy’s excitement is priceless! Praying for you all in the pediatric ward and for the Happy Baby to keep growing!

  8. Brings a smile to my heart and face, I am so happy for you. What a precious time. Of course, I could not write this without saying it brings back memories for me, of the first time Josiah met Jonathan, at the hospital he was ever so much as happy as Happy Buddy, then when he got home, his first reaction was one of “what is that baby doing in my house”. He got used to him real fast and was glad for a brother to have around and play with him. Still looking forward to meeting the Happy Baby in person. I get to kiss those cheeks off. :)
