Hello Everyone!!
I know I haven't been the best as posting photos of our new baby...but there is a reason!
We have had quite the couple weeks, Brevinn's start into the world was a bit shaky!!
It started Monday Sept. 15th, when I wasn't feeling him move inside me. We went to the hospital at night around 8:30 and they ran some tests and within 2 hours the signs were not looking good so our doctor stated we needed to do a C-section right away.
At 12:04am on Tuesday the 16th Brevinn Greg was born.

He had a rough first day at Bristol hospital, there was a lapse in his breathing around 7pm so that night they rushed him over to UCONN health center ICU.
Since then he hasn't had any other episodes, thank the Lord. However, he was in the ICU for almost two weeks while they finished all of their tests and continue to ween him off of the IVs.
He is home now; he came home Saturday!!!! We are so excited to be home and relaxing with eachother!

Everything has been completely positive so we have every reason to believe he will progress and have no major medical issues!!

Thank you for all the prayers!! Brevinn has been definitely blessed with all those who care about him, and its showing because his health has progressed wonderfully!!

He is our little miracle and we can't get enough of him!

Day 1- at Bristol Hospitol

It breaks my heart to look at these photographs again, this was such a scary time in our lives. But Brevinn was soooo good through all of the tests and blood being drawn! He really was a trooper!

Day 2-At Uconn

Day 3-At Uconn after a nice warm sponge bath!!!

One of my all time favorites!!!! Irresistible!!! He is definitely photogenic; takes after daddy!!!

FINALLY HOME after 1 week and 4 days at UCONN!

Rockin Grandma and Grandpa came to visit and were here the day he came home!!! How wonderful!!!
