Baby C

I blogged a while back about my friend T (Tam.ara) who had placenta previa. She delivered her baby boy Car.mine at 33w5d after an almost 10 week stay at the hospital. Tam.ara and I had weekly dinners while she was staying nearby at the hospital. It was so great to be able to spend so much time with my pregnancy buddy. 

Tam.ara brought baby Car.mine home about 3 weeks ago. Unfortunately, she lives almost 2 hours away from me. We originally met at yoga for fertility and both would travel to get there. This past weekend W and I drove up to her house for a visit. 

It was so great to see Tam.ara again and to finally be able to snuggle and hold baby Car.mine. I visited him quite a few times while he was in the NICU but was never able to hold him. 

He's so ridiculously adorable! He currently weighs about 4 lbs 13 oz and is such a little peanut. He's nursing and sleeping well, just gaining weight a little slowly. I've never held or changed a baby that tiny before. It made both me and W so excited for our girls to get here. 

Here are some pictures from our visit:

He was so cozy resting against my belly

such a comfy belly and boob to rest against

Look, no hands! Hard to picture there are 2 little ones in my belly right now. 


  1. Aww! What a preemie peanut! I have a soft spot for them :) So glad he is doing well. And I love that last pic!

  2. Cuuute:) I believe you were the most comfortable place for him to rest. Hopefully the girls were not kicking him;)
    You look very beautiful.

  6. He is precious !! The last picture is the cutest thing I've ever seen <3<3

  7. So glad he is home safe and healthy!

  8. I'm so glad he is home and doing well! Amazing that T was able to keep him cooking for another 10 weeks after she initially went into the hospital. That had to be scary for her. I'm just so glad for the happy ending. He really is adorable and looks so comfortable wrapped around your baby belly!
