James and I began this blog at the very beginning of our pregnancy with Wyatt to share and update our new adventures as we became pregnant and start the new season of parenthood. Sixteen weeks into pregnancy, I had to go into surgery to ensure our son would not come too early and shortly after, we found out Wyatt has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This is our humble attempt at being transparent and hopefully sharing the joys and love of Christ through this roller coaster ride we're on. And now to share even more with the new miracle on the way.

Feeding Camp Days 25 & 26

To kill time around here, especially on a Saturday morning, we do lots and lots of walking around the building.  Riding elevators up and down is especially fun.... pushing the buttons to make the doors open and close is even better!!!

We had a good weekend.  Wyatt continued to take in a higher volume of food.  Not as high as Friday but still a pretty good amount.  PTL!  

Waiting patiently for the door to open!

We have four full days left and Friday we will probably have breakfast and will hopefully be home for lunch!  That's my hope.  I haven't actually gotten word on that but from what I've seen with other families leaving, that's how it works.  

Wyatt also loves to go into the chapel and look at all the pretty windows.  

But FOUR days to get down to business folks!  He's doing great but we are praying for continued high volume eating as well eating skills building!  I'm praying for good rest for Wyatt and myself both.  He's not slept great the past couple of nights and lack of sleep effects eating.  And when I'm tired, I'm not at the top of my game for feeding him.  

running full speed at mom.

I got to go home for the night last night while James stayed with Wyatt.  It was a much needed break and rest.  I still had some work to do.  James and a couple friends painted Wyatt's room Friday night.  So thankful that his room is not stark white anymore.  We kept it the same color it was in the old house.  It's still awkwardly arranged of course, only because of the furniture we keep in there.  But I think I finally found a decent arrangement last night while moving it all back into the room.  

We also walk around to look for friends! 

I got to see the office in person as well.  It's looking so good.  I am so excited for it to be finished and for James to have a place to work.  :-)  

Chewing on cars. 

Okay, so here we go.  The final leg of the race.  Again, we ask for all your prayers for our little guy and we are SOOOOO thankful to everyone that is following our story and praying with us.  So thankful!  

A late night pano of Wyatt's freshly painted room.  The twin bed on the floor is missing it's white comforter and frame/headboard.  I think I finally found one that will work and match the crib! :-) 

James sent me this today,  He was pretty tired but refused to stop playing.  lol.

Fell asleep in my arms again!  He is one tired kiddo!
Those red bumps on his face are from him chewing on EVERYTHING and his skin having lots and lots of moisture (drool).  We are trying to keep it as dry as we can.   

OH yeah... Wyatt's vomiting has been minimal!  PTL!!
