“A bird in hand is worth more than two in the bush”Old Proverb
Some time last week I was just thinking that we are parents again. I remember when Henry was two weeks old I would wake up around 2 AM with sounds of Amy feeding the baby. Sometimes I hovered around his bassinet making sure he is still breathing.
This time around it is not the case. There is a beautiful baby that the nurses are taking care of and we visit from time to time. I am still protective, but the nurses protect the baby at all cost.
We are rejoicing in every single moment that we would normally take for granted.
Amy got to hold John Lee today! We talked about how it has been two weeks since baby was last in momma’s arms yesterday. Today I stayed behind with Henry and got a text from Amy. It said, “They are planning to let me hold him around 2!” My heart was full of joy.
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Answered prayers!
What more can I say! We are grateful now, and hopeful for the future. We are looking forward to holding John Lee more—He will be hugged and squeezed with love.
