11/11 wishes

Hi my friends. I've missed being here.
With my daily trips to the NICU unit and expressing
milk on a schedule all for Jacob has consumed most of my time.

You can read all the books, hear stories from your friends
or your own mom. Nothing prepares you for motherhood like
actually experiencing yourself.

Though I'm tired and wish Jacob home with us every day.
I'm happy to be a mom and that he is here.

Today is 11/11/11. A day to make wishes and celebrate
all the good you like to come your way. Being on
Veterans' Day, I hope some of that 11 magic goes
to our Vets who deserve it.

Speaking about wishes, Here is one of my deepest wishes
come true: Jacob. He is now 3 pounds and 6 oz.
Most of his wires are gone except his feeding tube.
My little Pumpkin prince is doing so well.

Hi Shell, so glad to hear that Jacob is doing well. yours days must be full running back and forth. I am hoping and wishing all the luck in the world to you and your family. those numbers must be lucky and hoping luck to the veterans. I heard some statistics today about homeless veterans...it was shocking...wishing you all the best, until next time.

Beautiful Shell! Sweet and gorgeous little Jacob! I'm so glad to know that Jacob has graced our presence. Thank you Jacob and Thank you Shell for being his mom. He chose you, and you chose him. I've been away from blogsphere, but today, after meditation, I said, I need to see what Shell is up too.. and I'm so glad I did.

Perfect body, perfect mind, perfect Jacob! No doubt that Jacob is perfect. He is the manifestation of Good - All Good! That's where everyting comes from - God! I see you Jacob strong, healthy, vibrant and keeping your mom chasing after you. Shell, you are such a flower. Miss you girl!

Oh. my. god.

I feel like such a fool! I lost track of your blog and then found it again (I am such a dork!) and I am so glad I did. How amazing is this?!!

Your very own baby and I'm glad that you are both safe even though you've obviously been through a lot and I hope only goodness and healing follows you.

Big Hugs,
