A Year Ago Today

A year ago today, December 10th 2008, we brought home our son. After spending 8 long days and nights up in Portland at Legacy Emanuel Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), we were given the OK to bring Teagan home. I remember feeling overwhelmed, as do most parents I'm sure when they bring home their baby for the first time. We at leased we somewhat lucky in a way because Teagan was already on a schedule, eating every 3 hours. It was a little nerve racking to then have to get into our car and drive 2 hours home from Portland and have it timed just right. Mind you we had left our home in a hurry since my water had suddenly broke 6 weeks early. I couldn't think of what the house was going to be like when we arrived. As we pulled into our driveway, there was my dad, he had been up at the house and had turned the lights and the heat on for us. Thanks Dad! Here are some photos from a year ago today....

Here is James with Teagan in his car seat, inside this wooden shopping cart lookin' thing, that the stroll the babies out of the NICU with. Strange huh.

We stopped by this beautiful Christmas tree for a quick photo.

Getting put into the car for the first time.

Goodbye Hospital!

First car ride home!

Look how tiny Teagan was!
This was the first time in his bedroom bassinet, next to our bed.

We are having so much fun being parents. It is one of the hardest, yet rewarding jobs there are. We are in love with this little boy of ours and enjoy watching him grown, learn and smile every day.
We love you Teagan!

  1. Hey, very nice! It's amazing how much he's grown. I never saw the box thing he got to ride in at the hospital, so it's fun to see that!
