A Little Update

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

After two loooong days of being away from Ronin, I finally got discharged and my husband and I headed straight down to San Diego Children's Hospital to be with him for the week.

The day we got the okay to take Ronin home!

Max holding his brother for the first time. This melts my heart beyond words. He is being such a good big brother! He helps me get diapers and has been adjusting so well to our new family member.

I am usually pretty open and honest on my blog, but after putting some thought into the part two post that I mentioned here I decided some things are meant to stay private and just between my husband and I. After writing the post I realized I don't want to have to relive all the emotions that I went through and I want to focus on the now, which is amazing and I could not be happier with my family of 4.

Ronin is doing so great and has already gained 6 ounces since birth! He is currently a super healthy 10 pound 5 ounce little chunker and I am completely in love.

I am so happy for you, Lindsay. :) What a precious little family you have. They are perfect. I love your desire to keep some things between you and your family and everyone will completely respect you for it. That's how it should be. :)

So thankful all are doing well, and everyone is home. That is what is important! Not all the details in-between. Praising God Ronin's blood sugared stabilized, and all is well. Enjoy your time with you sweet addition. Big Brother seems to adore him already.

I'm glad you are keeping those moments to yourself. It's hard not to want to share everything, since the blogging world is just so wonderful, but I think you are doing the right thing. I am very happy that Ronin is doing so well. And how about that sweet brother he has. Oh, those two are just adorable--starting of a beautiful friendship.

Congratulations! Beautiful photos!

You have a beautiful family! I have tried writing out what I felt when my son had to stay a short while in the NICU and haven't ever found a way to truly express it. But, it doesn't truly matter anymore, does it? He's home now and your family is wonderful!

natasha {schue love} said...

Congratulations momma! He really is the sweetest...so glad he's home safely with you!

S T E P H A N I E L E A N N said...

Congratulations Lindsay! So glad you all are well. Your boys together is the cutest! :)

Briana said...

So wonderful. Glad all is well. And I totally feel you on not sharing... I did share Alice's birth story (with an emergency c-section) and it was SO hard for me to write... and I still can't read it even 12 weeks later. Maybe you write it down for yourself so that you and your family have the memory? I know I'll look forward to sharing the emotion with Alice when she gets older.

Again... congrats!

Vera @ Cozy Little Cabin said...

He is beautiful. . . thanks for sharing the fabulous photos

Mindy said...

Awwww, I bet it feels good to be home. Your little critter weighs almost as much as Little Laney does at 4 months!!! lol
Looking forward to watching him grow on the ol' blog. Hope the eating, sleeping, changing schedule isn't running you too ragged. It slows down before you realize it - I promise. :o) And then you'll be wishing he was a newborn again. These past four months have FLOWN!!!!
Congratulations girlie.

colleen said...

he is seriously one of the most perfect looking newborns i've ever seen - and i'm so glad he's better and home now. hope you had a great day with your boys!

Pink Ronnie said...

Oh my, he is SO beautiful Lindsay. Seriously beautiful.
Ronnie xo

Rachael said...

Awww, a little 'chunker' huh? What a gorgeous family. :) I'm glad you're all together. I didn't know you lived in SD too! What a teensy world!

mafi said...

Ronin is so beautiful. Wishing him all the happiness and health.

Mariana said...

Lovely photos!!
And the last one... Too cute!!
Two beautiful boys! :)

The Popes said...

Good for you and I'm SO happy for you!

I write a lot about my kids adoption stories and the emotion that has gone with it. Part of me does wonder if I'm telling too much of what's meant to be only their story to tell. For me it's a hard balance because I want to draw awareness and excitement for foster care and adoption but I don't want to expose them too much either. Tricky stuff!

He's totally gorgeous and I can't wait to see him grow!

Phanit from Considerations said...

Lindsay said...

Skye said...

Awww....the brother pic is so touching. What ever the journey it took to get there I am just happy for your family's sake that Ronin is home & healthy. Enjoy!

Anna @ IHOD said...

Lindsay,
Just teared up reading your story. I don't think I would have been able to read part two even if you had wrote it. Just thinking about being apart from your new babe...
I am so happy he is now home with you. He is perfect. Utter cuteness and adorableness. God is good. Sending a little prayer of thanksgiving that you all are together and happy:)
Anna

Jennifer said...

Just read your blog. I love it and I am so happy to see that the baby is home. =) Cheers to that and your beautiful family!

Shug in Boots said...

Congrats, girl! I haven't been on blogger in weeks, so I missed all of this until now. But, I am SO GLAD everything turned out okay. WHAT a terrifying hell to live through. But, God is good! Congrats again! :)

Tonia L said...

I totally understand that you want to keep some of that story to yourself. Focus on that beautiful baby of yours and your darling Max! They are both too sweet for words.

Katie said...

I just stumbled on your blog through one of my followers. My husband started our family blog the day my son surprised us, and decided to enter this world at 27 wks. He spent 81 days in the NICU, and I shared the entire roller coaster of our journey with so many friends and family via our blog.
2yrs later I still post anecdotes about my busy growing boy! Quite frankly some days I do wonder if we decided to share too much from his time in the hospital. I guess some days it was just easier than having to talk to so many people about our experience.
Hold onto those memories and enjoy your two amazing little boys!
