I am happy!

I am happy that I got to meet Gus. I’m happy that I got to see his precious smile and his flirtatious ways. I’m happy that I was able to capture very expressive moments with my camera so I can continue to share Gus with others. I’m happy that we got to bring him home where he could interact with his siblings in a normal atmosphere. I’m happy that he would wiggle to get out of the arms of whoever was holding him when he saw me come in the room. I’m happy when I remember his fascination with a new plaything. I’m happy when I think about the special kind of communication we had since he was deaf. I’m happy when I think about how much he loved to get his central line dressing changed because of the smell of the chloraprep. I’m happy because he was such a complete joy to take care of and I’m so happy that he is mine!

Jenny... Gus is beautiful. I'm glad you got so many pictures of him (tho sometimes it feels like not enough, huh?).. and I'm glad you share him with others.

We lost a baby at 36 weeks (stillborn).. she was my husbands first baby (Jordan Riley)... So hard.

Happy Birthday to Gus.. Happy birth day to you Momma.
