At exactly 21 weeks old (147 days, for those who are counting...) and just over 8 pounds (!) we got to take his leads off for one final time and leave our security blanket and face the world. It is the end of our NICU journey, but just the beginning of what only can become a wonderful life for Andrew.
|Final snuggle in room 202|
|Taking off his leads|
|Going home outfit - made with love.|
That's for sure.
(Do you see a dimple here?!?)
|Thank you for everything...|
|Free at last!|
|Ready for the car ride!|
|Welcome home, Andrew|
Welcome home, son. We're so very glad you are here, and so proud of you!
