Myles--4 days old

There wasn't much that happened on Myles's 5th day of life, but lack of activity in the NICU is a good thing. All of our immediate family, my parents, my brother and his girlfriend, J's brother, J's mom, J's dad and his wife, came to stay for the weekend. They all took turns talking to and cheering on Myles through the isollette portholes! Here's a great photo that Uncle Jeremy A. took of J's mom and dad admiring Mr. Myles:

Everyone repeatedly told us that Myles was cute and looked just like Josh. I couldn't agree more--Myles was a beautiful, little baby who had his daddy's nose and mouth.

Thank you for sharing your precious little boy with us; I feel honored to be reading along.

I've also been meaning to thank you for a comment you left on my blog - but it seemed so insignificant in light of Myles' birthday, and I didn't want to "interrupt" :)

At any rate, our stories do seem somewhat sadly similar. . . I've tried to read back through most of your posts. The one thing I didn't figure out is if you have any underlying clotting disorders. If you don't mind sharing that, or anything else, sometime, please feel free to comment on my blog or email me at bmarielee at aol dot com.

Thank you again for your beautiful words. ((Hugs))

He's so beautiful, Niki. A little fighter just like his mama. Many hugs to you.
