Quick Update- Meet Baby Wyatt!

Hey all!

So..the last 5 weeks have been bumpy. I went to my doctor's appointment on February 12th and was sent directly to the hospital for preeclampsia. I stayed in the hospital about 3 weeks before they needed to deliver my son via C-section, due to some issues he was having as well. He was born early, at almost 33 weeks. On the day he was born, it was discovered that he had a brain bleed in an ultrasound, which prompted the delivery. Three days after he was born, he had a reservoir put into his head. He is now two weeks born, and doing really well! He is still in the NICU and probably will be for a while, which is hard. I just want him well and at home, but for now he is in the best place for him. However, if you could keep him in your prayers, that would be appreciated. :)

Meet Wyatt James Atticus! We gave him an extra middle name to grow on. :)

Feeling nautical! And I no longer have the feeding tube in my nose, I eat like a big boy now!


  1. What a cutie! Congratulations! That must have been scary, but I'm glad he's doing well. I love the middle name Atticus. Great idea! :) I'll be praying for your family!

    1. Thanks! He is gaining weight like gangbusters, and the eating from a bottle like a champ, which I guess is hard for preemies to do. :)

  2. Thanks for updating us all. We will be praying for him. What a beautiful baby--and I'm so glad he's doing well.

  3. Ah, I'm sorry to hear you and your son have been having a rough time of it - positive thoughts being sent your way!

    Congratulations - Wyatt is beautiful - the name and your boy :-P

  4. Wow! I'm glad you all are doing well despite all the set backs. :) Praying you get home soon. :)

  5. Wyatt James Atticus looks adorable. I will keep you all in my prayers.

  6. My prayers and thoughts are with you, your husband, and baby Wyatt (love his whole name!). It must be difficult times being he is a preemie, but it looks like he is getting awesome care. I hope he gets to come home soon and meet his whole extended family. God bless.


I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
