Baby Fritz with Grandma Fran
It's always the best of days when a new baby comes home, but it's especially poignant when a preemie comes home. Here's our newest family member--little Fritz--on Friday. I had not held him in the NICU, so to be able to hold him was sheer heaven, even though it was only a moment. At this time he is still only 35 weeks old--wouldn't be full term for another five weeks. But, he's healthy and already well over 5 lbs. Let's hear it for Fritz--and for his 18 month old brother Henry who has a lot of adjusting to do.
Speaking of Henry, he is enchanted with spiders so I brought this plastic web and spider with lights for him to enjoy during Halloween. He'll go trick or treating as Bob the Builder because he also loves construction equipment--even more than spiders.
