It’s hard to believe that 6 weeks have passed since Spencer came home from the NICU. Since it’s been 6 weeks, that means his quarantine is officially over! So last week we went out to celebrate Spencer’s new freedom by taking to Smash Burger and then to see my parents.
Sometimes it seems like Spencer really just wants to stretch out his arms and legs and grow, so this weekend, while Joy was folding some laundry, I laid him on Joy’s pillow and sat next to him (so he couldn’t roll off). He was very content to just lay there and look at the window.
When his pacifier fell out of his mouth, I picked it up and started tickling his upper lip with it and got just the cutest smile!
The past six weeks have really flown by. Sure, there’s been a few sleepless nights and sometimes you wonder what in the world it’s going to take to make him stop crying, but it’s all worth it to have our son healthy and home with us.
