These are some pics of Carter's stay in the NICU.

He had jaundice so he had to stay under the blue light for a few days. He looks like a little space man with the goggles :o)
This was so hard for me because he could only be out for 30 minutes every 3 hours to eat. And all I wanted to do was just hold him. It was awful just sitting there and not being able to just scoop him up and snuggle him.
After the jaundice level went down he was able to come out from under the blue light. Then they used the blue "blanket". It was a little pad that they put under his clothes. This was the first day he got to wear actual clothes! Ty said he looked like a Glo Worm!!
This is the chair that we spent a lot of time in.....just waiting to bring him home!!

Ty was feeding him....then Carter was only eating around 10-20 CC- Not even a whole ounce! Now he's eating between 3-4 ounces. He has come such a long way from when he was in the NICU.
