Here’s looking at you, babe!

Latest update – Ethen’s weight is currently 1.57kg and he has “graduated” to the special care nursery (SCN). He is off all drips and caffeine (no more coffee addict! haa..). Right now, he only has a feeding tube for milk to flow direct into his tummy and some monitoring devices. His cheeks have also grown rosier and chubbier! And….. for the first time, Daddy and Mummy could carry him as he is no longer in an incubator. 🙂

For most parents, it is beyond describable words when you get to hold your little one for the first time. And the feeling of being able to cuddle your baby only weeks after he is born is packed with emotions which probably not all understand….

It is right to say pictures paint a thousand words. Look at the 3 happy faces! 🙂

  5. Evelyn,
    I’ve been thinking about you and your family and praying for you. Baby Ethen is so incredibly cute and looks so healthy. He truly is a little miracle. I wish I could meet him, but since that is not possible he will definately be in my prayers and your family too. Keep us updated with lots of pictures of the growing miracle baby. I can only imagine the ache you have felt to hold your baby and the overwhelming joy when you were finally able to. What a mix of emotions you must have as you so badly want to bring your baby home and enjoy life together, and yet rejoice and be glad for each step and the miracle that God is doing.
    Praising God with you,
    Becca

    • Hi Becca

      Thank you for the prayers and support. 🙂 You are spot-on on the emotions part. We are praying that Ethen will grow fast and come home with us soon. Will keep updating blog with his photos whenever possible. 🙂

      Hope you are keeping well too. 🙂
      Bless,
      Evelyn
