Visitors...



Ezra has had some wonderful visits from his grandparents and brother and sister. Anne was in town to help us out right after Ezra was born and so of course she was able to come and visit him in the hospital. Right after her my mom came out and then my dad came out for the weekend. We are so thankful for all the help we have been receiving during this time.


Tucker and Tilly LOVE to visit their "Baby Ezra" in the hospital. Tucker is always asking if he can pet Ezra. So cute. Tilly wants to visit all the other babies here in the hospital as well. The kids are always praying for Ezra that he will get better and come home soon. I like how excited they get when they do get to come and visit their brother. Seeing Ezra has made it more real for Tucker and Tilly, so I think they are handling mommy and daddy being away so much a little bit better. Granted it is still hard on them but not AS much.

Beau has been staying the night here with Ezra so that the little guy knows that we are always here. I don't really know how much sleep Beau gets at the hospital but he doesn't care. Beau, would rather go with out sleep then have Ezra be alone. Thank you Beau for being such an amazing father.
p.s. I would stay but Beau insists I go home to "recover". I think he just likes his special bonding time with Ezra. Which is fine...I'm okay with that.

Good grief girl. Looking at all of those pictures of little Ezra in the ICU hits just a tad bit close to home for me. There's no way I can look at those sweet little pictures and not BAWL. The feedings, tubes, worrying. I admire your attitude and strength. That is wonderful that Beau stays with him at night so you can go home and recharge. It's the tough times like these where you will find your greatest blessings and recognize your inner strength. YOU ARE LOVED! Keep the updates coming as I know there are many concerned friends and family members.

I love that Tucker wants to pet Ezra. That is the cutest thing ever! I'm so glad to see that you've had grandparents out to help.

I can't wait to hear what Dr. Whittington has to say. Poor little Ezra, with all those IVs and such. . .what a rough start to life. He'll be an incredibly strong and special boy for sure after all he's gone through.

Jordan and Josh are very worried for "Tucker's Baby" and bless him to feel better in every prayer.

Sarah, so glad that Whittington is coming!! Hooray for prayer! Little Ez is looking awfully tied up, but I am so happy that you can hold him while he eats his bottles...or I mean nurses from the bottle...whatever. I love the pics of Ez with all the family members. So precious. And I am grateful you have Beau too...I am so proud of both of you. And don't think we didn't notice that you managed to get yourself into one of the pics of Ez and Daddy...:) We love you guys and keep praying for your little man. Kiss him for me and Rob.
