Mauricio just got to change RJ's diaper for the first time. It may have been the first time I've seen my husband smile in over a week! We are so thankful to the NICU nurses for giving us the chance to feel like parents, if even just for a second.
Also, I still can't get over just how small our little guy is. It's hard to really grasp his size from a photo, so here's a pic of his diaper next to an iPhone. Even with such a small diaper, it still has to be folded to fit his tiny body!

Kelly, thank you for sharing your journey. My heart has ached since learning of the birth. Being the mother of a preemie myselfI completely relate to your anxiety and emotions. I had H.E.L.L.P syndrome, which is an advance type of preclampsia.I will continue to hold your family in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you again for sharing.
