Jonas singing....and a Baby Rich update

 When Amy and Logan invited me to lunch on Friday I thought I would just take my own car and meet them there. But then the selfish side of me came out and I called and asked if they would pick me up. I thought it would be fun to ride in their car. So glad I did, or I would have missed this!

Every time I hear him trying to sing, "I've learned to live half a life." he makes me laugh. 
One thing is certain, this little boy does not live half a life. He embraces it all.



Baby Rich is 3 days old now, and already up to 5 lbs, up from his birth weight of 4'11". I've had full term babies who took much longer than this to get their birth weight back. Karen was released from the hospital yesterday and it was very hard going home without her baby. They go to the hospital 3xs a day which means they spend about 3 hours a day in the car since the hospital is about 25 minutes from their home. I'm so grateful to Karen's mom for being with them right now!

This was hilarious! We got such a kick out of it. Also, the observations about Grandpa's house. Toys? Cookies? They've got that down right. Loved hearing about Baby Rich's progress. Does he have to reach a certain weight before he can be released? Love, Dad and Susan

PS. I cried like crazy when I had to leave my slightly preemie baby in the hospital. But the initial leaving was the worst. I was there every day, and the time passed pretty quickly till we got him home. Happiest day ever!

Glad the baby is doing well. do you know when he will come home?

Grandma Honey said...

They were told Rich will be in the hospital for 1-4 weeks. So not sure. I think they usually like to keep early babies til near their due date, so for Rich that would be Sept. 2nd...of course we are hoping he will be home long before that.

That video is darling! I love that he can talk about things around him and get right back to the song!
I hope Baby Rich comes home soon. That is so hard but what a blessing he's getting healthy!
