34 weeks and 1 day

34 weeks and 1 day. Ready or Not...
August 3, 2013...Baby Moses made his debut!

While everything isn't "ideal" we are madly in love and super excited that he's here. 
He is to teeny tiny& super cute. He's already as good a snuggler as his brothers and makes faces that remind me of his daddy. He's a feisty little guy...pulling at all the wires, lifting his head, and rolling around in his incubator. {I'm not surprised, he was non stop movement during the pregnancy.} I can't get enough of our scheduled "cuddle sessions".

It has been an emotional few days. 
Our baby can't be with me, our boys are at home without me & I miss my hubs. There is nothing that can be done to change any of it. The situation "is what it is". But this mama has struggled being separated from all her men...visiting hours just aren't long enough.

Later today I will be headed home & Moses will be staying the NICU for some extra care...for an indefinite amount of time.

I am so excited to be reunited with my guys and back home where I belong...but I hate that I'm leaving our littlest boy behind. 
Consider me Conflicted. 

My heart will be torn in half as I long to be in 2 places at once, constantly. 

Your prayers for strength, endurance, patience and trust...we covet. 

And join us as we rejoice that he is not in danger & only needs some time to let his little body mature. We are blessed that our journey has a relatively close ending in sight. Despite the difficulty of not being together for a little while...

Welcome to the world Moses Snyder Willey! We can't wait to bring you home!
