We made it through the night! Honestly, it was so peaceful compared to the NICU. Finn hasn’t known silence, or soft sounds since he was born, and as a result he slept like a baby. We had a crisis at about 1:30am when we witnessed how strong his neck is. As he’s prone, he was turning his head into the bed and sleeping face down…freaked us out! Of course we slept at the opposite end of the bed near his “newborn napper” and woke up every hour to check on him. He, however, only woke up once to feed. We’ll continue to work on head positioning tonight.

Great Gram and Gramps Eitreim came to meet Finn this morning and lulled him to sleep in their arms. Such a sweet time with family.

We are grateful.
