Meet the Newest Fons Boys!

On Wednesday afternoon, August 26th, while I was on hospital bed rest, my water broke and I went into pre-term labor at 25 weeks and 3 days.  A short time later, by emergency C-Section, Wyatt Andrew and Jackson Christopher were welcomed into this world.  Wyatt weighs 1 lb. 8 oz. and was born at 5:12 pm.  Jackson (Jack) weighs 2 lb. and was born at 5:14 pm.  They are both in the Neonatal ICU and are stable on ventilators.  We are overjoyed by our blessings, and we are prayerful that the boys continue to fight and grow until it is time for them to join us at home.  Until then, Noah is being groomed for the “big brother” role – we think he’s going to be great!  Here are some of the first pictures of the newest Fons boys:

Sleepy Time

Noah has always been a crib sleeper.  When he started going to school last month, we weren’t sure how he would adapt to taking naps on a mat in a room full of other kids.  It sounds like some days are better than others (daily report card one day read: “NO NAP”).  These pictures were taken shortly after he started going to school at the end of July.  He was really wiped out from the day – he grabbed his blanket, lovey and took over Pacey’s pillow.

The blog is back!

I’ve been really lazy about updating Noah’s blog lately since I have been on bed rest.  Now that I’m confined to a hospital room, I’ve been asked more than a few times “what else do you have to do?”  So, here we go…We’re back!  I have a lot of older pictures to post, but I wanted to start with my favorites.  Yesterday, Greg and Papa Joe brought Noah for a visit.  On other days, Noah has been more interested in roaming the hospital halls than sticking around with boring old mom.  Grandma Linda had a brilliant idea to keep him in the room with us – new toys that will stay here with us in the hospital.  It worked!  We had a great visit!
