Prayers Please

Tomorrow we go to the Minneapolis Children's Hospital for tests for Simeon's kidneys.
I'm actually looking forward to getting out of the house, this mama is used to going places!!
We are hoping to find out when surgery will be.
He's still so little.
We are thinking he's about 6 lbs now.
He's still in the Newborn size diapers and clothes, which are big on him.
He's such a little honey.
He has a dimple on his left cheek, like me, and another dimple on the same cheek, by his mouth,
like Ballerina Rosie.
He loves to hold my finger while feeding him
 and he's so gentle always with his hands up by his face constantly.
He loves his cheeks kissed constantly, and this mama loves to kiss him constantly.

We are Baptizing him tonite.
Since we cannot take him out in the public, for fear of germs and sickness which can lead to
RSV, with his mouth and nose open to the air, we just cannot risk it.
We wanted him Baptized before any surgeries or even procedures like tomorrow will bring.
Our Deacon is coming tonite to Baptize him.
It's the quickest planned thing ever, Papa Murphy's pizza, a cake from Sam's Club 
and many blessings coming his way.

It's a special day. 

Thank you for all your prayers, they are precious and appreciated so much!

  21. Oh I love how you describe your little honey's sweetness! Thank you for the smile you just brought to my face. I know it must be tough to stay put...This mama is used to going places too so I can imagine your bittersweet cabin fever. The good Lord knows what He's doing when he tires us out so we are forced to stay put...and in your case keep them protected too:)

    Prayers for a wonderful appt (still praying for a miracle healing!) and a safe trip to the Cities.

    Such a beautiful picture of you two. Love the dimples, like his beautiful Mama.

    How amazing I sent his baptism gift this week :)

    Love and prayers!

  29. Chiming in late here, but know you all have been in our prayers. We had one of the "quicky" baptisms for our second child who was born with a heart defect and needed surgery. Not wanting to take her out, the priest was amazing. God bless Simeon on his special day and God bless you and your family as you continue to parent this little baby in such an awesome way. Through His grace alone can we carry through each day in times like this. God bless!

  30. Jamie and Family,
    First off, CONGRATULATIONS on your new little baby BOY!! I haven't checked your blog in a while and have been wondering if you have had the baby. I was delighted to see that you HAD had the baby and it was a BOY! Tom and Jedi must be pumped to have the numbers closer to even in the family :-) So happy to read that Simeon doesn't need surgery, that is wonderful!! I would love to bring you a meal to make one night in your home less hectic. Let me know when would be a good time. You little boy is absolutely precious. I love the picture that goes along with this post. The love between the two of you is very evident. Congratulations again!! your neighbor, Sarah.
