This little nugget had a busy week! Shep had his F O U R month appointment (3 weeks adjusted today) and had to get some shots and his rotarix, Shep is weighing in at 7.11 pounds and growing. He is more than ready to come off his oxygen (he is constantly pulling it off himself) but we still have 2 more weeks (although I’m pretty sure he is ready now). OT started coming twice a week to give little man a good stretch and workout. We have become an awesome sleeper and sleep in 5-6 hour stretches at night (thank you Jesus 🙌🏻). We saw the dreaded eye doctor today to check on Shep’s ROP. Still stage 2 but we are now zone 3 which is an improvement 👏🏼 slowly but surely this guy is getting there! #micropreemie#fourmounths#25weeker#really24#tinybutmighty#nicugrad#lifeafternicu#littlemiracle#babybrother#3weeksnew#littlestlittle#shepardjames#hellomay

Announcements make Tuesday's feel like Fridays! •
Last night was Shepard’s first night in his crib and he did AMAZING. This momma on the other hand did not. At first I was really excited to have my room back, to cuddle up in bed and watch my trashy reality shows, but when it came time to crawl into bed I fell apart. I bawled like a baby y’all! When I looked over and didn’t see my baby I was instantly brought back to those NICU days. ((It’s funny how the simplest changes/things can do that)) Those were by far the hardiest most heartbreaking nights filled with tears, worry, loneliness, helplessness and grief. I knew my baby was in great hands, but he wasn’t in mine. For 80 days I yearned for that little boy and those sleepless nights, to be able to snuggle after those last night/early morning feedings. Now that those night feedings are gone and little man has flown the coop to his own room I miss him more than I thought I would. Time is such a thief, love on your babies and enjoy every moment 💙 #babiesdontkeep#micropreemie#lifeafternicu#nicugrad#ourlittlemiracle#mommasboy#25weeker#growinguptoofast#timeslowdown#littlestlittle#forevermybaby
You know when you have a #keeper of a #friend when you spend all day in urgent care and the er with two of your boys and she swoops in to take care of the #littlestlittle by picking him up from school, taking him for a sushi date and shopping for #StPatricksDay fun!! BONUS: I get to enjoy this yummy goodness 🍣 after a very long day!! Yes, the other two boys are fine, just wasn’t a good day for either of them ❤️ #friendsarefamily#loveher#thanksauntietam#pnwlife
Happiest SEVENTH birthday to my handsome kiddo! He’s SO funny and SO annoying at the same time but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Continue to be you, bubba. You’re perfect in every way... other than putting the toilet seat down and putting your shoes where they go but, hey! We’re working on it, right?! Happy birthday, baby!! Love you ♥️ #birthdayboy#Bubby#littlestlittle#babyboy#sevenyearsyoung#priceclan
To my littlest little, my last baby. This pregnancy is so much different than with your big sister. Gone is the excitement of learning what “pregnant” feels like; but instead, I’m cherishing each moment knowing each stage goes by so fast. We usually take belly bump pictures a few days late, but we’ll catch up on pictures when you’re here. There’s no rush though, my baby. ❤️ #littlestlittle#12weekspregnant#ultrasound#mybaby

#lewisdana is 8 months old and loves to eat every single thing in his reach!
Hes a big guy! He held onto the 6-12 month clothes as long as we could. 12-24 month clothes for this guy.
Still just has his two bottom teeth. Hes loud loves playing with his brothers and rolling around the floor! @justingaudett
This right here! How am I suppose to do anything when this cute site was right there! Robin loves her animals and she loves it even more when she has them lay woth her. Of course once I got up so did Madison but Rascal came in and took over! #myheart#animallovers#littlestlittle#naptime
My current situation! She is sprawled out, wrapped up in a blanket on my lap! You would think she would realise she doesn't fit my lap anymore but NOPE. She will call herself up as small as she can and make herself fit! I'm not complaining! #mamasgirl#gettingtobig#almost4#littlestlittle
