During our nightly prayer of "Now I Lay Me Down to Rest" followed by "God bless...", Evan would end with "and sweet Baby Calvin that's in mommy's tummy". God has blessed him, indeed. He is doing really well. God has blessed all of us.
Grandma Linda and Grandpa Ray showed up in time for my time to try nursing. Since the nurse was going to take Calvin out of the warming unit (not sure what it is called - too tired to pay attention), they both got to hold him for a minute. This is a sign of how well he's doing.
He is sucking his thumb! Nursing went well for about a minute - improvement since this morning!
Thank you for the flowers Mike and Sarah! The nurse liked them. They make my room colorful.
Grandma Jo Jo and Grandpa Wayne took Evan shopping at the hospital gift shop. Evan picked this ceramic bird out for me. Grandma reported he said something similar to "I love Mom". It was a highlight to see him. I miss Nolan, too!
