Receiving Blankets and Burp Cloths

Most of the baby flannel has been made into some soft and cozy receiving blankets and colorful burp cloths for that special baby of mine. I was told tonight that they are already being used and enjoyed.


Bear is quite pleased with the receiving blankets.


Matching burp cloths.


I still have  not gotten to hold my beautiful grandson — the neo-natal unit started  restricting visits  to only parents  because there are so many cases of swine flu in our community. My patience is being stetched big time — when I finally get to hold him I may never put him down.  I am very grateful for digital cameras — at least I am able to see pictures when I can’t visit. I may have to get a part time job just to pay for all the pictures I am printing : )

Late Friday night he was moved to a different hospital. This means that he no longer is in intensive care —  he just needs to remain stable and get his weight up. He had his first real bath just before the big move and he is wearing his own clothes now. This other hospital doesn’t have the same restriction because of the swine flu so if all goes well hubby and I are going to visit this evening and I will finally get to hold and cuddle my first grandson — I’ll keep you posted.
