The Newest Neville

The Neville journey as our family grows…

Our first week

Well we have been home a week now and it has been wonderful! Clint had to go back to work on Monday so it was a quick transition from hospital, to home, to home alone with 3 kids. I was a bit nervous about it but everyone has adapted so well. Abbey has been a huge help and she loves being the big sister. Emma has been great too! I thought for sure she would show her little attitude once Mason was home with us but she is learning well how to be a big sister from her big sister. Mason is fabulous! He is sleeping for long stretches at night so we feel like we are getting enough rest. There were even a couple days that I was able to get all 3 kids to nap at the same time! Of course I spent that time sleeping also. I feel very blessed to have such a wonderful and beautiful family!

All clear

Mason had his check up today and he is perfect! He was a little jaundice when we left the hospital but his levels are coming down. No more respiratory issues at all. He is eating well and sleeping well. Thanks again for all the thoughts and prayers over the last week. I guess being the 3rd child, Mason wanted to make a grand arrival with lots of commotion! He succeeded at that!

Home!

Sorry for the delay in updates. We came home Saturday afternoon and spent yesterday adjusting to our newest addition. Mason is doing really well. We go back to the doctor for a check up today. Abbey absolutely adores him! She doesn’t quite understand that she can’t share her meals with him or why he doesn’t walk and play. She would also prefer if he would finish a bottle in about 10 sec and eat every 30 minutes so she can feed him like her baby dolls! It has been such a joy watching her love on her brother. Emma is not as interested as I expected her to be. She will walk by occasionally and pat him on the head but that is about all the interaction she cares for. Mason has been sleeping really well which is a pure blessing to me! I feel great and am surviving my first day home alone with all 3 kids!

I just got back from visiting with our little boy. He looks wonderful and he sounds great! I really expect his labs to come back ok and for him to be able to go home either tomorrow night or Saturday. The neonatologist has not seen him yet today so I will let you know when I hear from him.

Several people have asked about visiting. We love visitors! Unfortunately you would just be coming to see Clint and I (c: because the NICU does not allow visitors but you are more than welcome to stop by. We are just hanging out, taking advantage of the down time to rest and recharge.
