Congratulations on Becca's arrival!

I'll be praying for her to be ready to go home with you quickly.

I'm so glad you're able to breastfeed! That will certainly help!

Aww, Congratulations. I will be thinking of you and your family and hoping she gets to come home soon.

How wonderful you are able to breastfeed. Ronald McDonald House is so wonderful. My BIL and SIL stayed at one as well when their baby was born at 34 weeks.

Congrats on your baby girl!!! 5lbs 15oz at 33 weeks? Go little Rebecca. Sounds like she's holding her own! It's wonderful you are able to breast feed her, and did I hear you say exclusively? That's amazing, keep up the good work.

And HURRAY for our first baby in the August DDC

Keep us posted, wishing you all a short hospital stay.

Congratulations! Whenever you feel up to telling the whole story of her arrival please do so!

When my brother was little (he has Spina Bifida) we stayed a few times at the Ronald McDonald House. They are wonderful!

Congratulations, mama!! And Welcome, Rebecca Nickole!!
I too am delighted to hear what a nice big girl you had at 33 wks, and it seems like she is doing really well. Keep us updated when you can. the McD house is close to our heart as well. We'll keep you and your family in our thoughts the next time we make a donation How wonderful that you're able to BF while she's in the NICU!!

Speedy recovery to you. Hope you can all be home together soon to enjoy your babymoon!

thanks for stopping in and sharing during what I can imagine must be a busy, exhausting time.

Congrats, first August DDC mama... !!!

The babymoon isn't over! Our long awaited A born 7/18/10, making us laugh and smile every day.

Woo hoo! Welcome beautiful blessing!

Ronald McDonald house is an amazing charity! Our first was in the NICU for 3 weeks, and they were a tremendous help.

Blessings to you and that little one...I pray she grows stronger with each day!
