We had the pleasure of delivering and welcoming Ms. Penelope Sophia on June 16, 2017 via c-section. At the time of the delivery it became quite stressful and hectic so quickly. This was a time in our lives that we wanted to cherish. As happy as we were to finally have her here, the stay became extremely stressful. No one prepares you mentally or emotionally, let alone physically for what would be ahead of you when your child is in NICU. We spent way more time in the hospital than what was originally planned. We didn’t have the best experience with some of the staff. However, I’ll leave that story for another post! We are beyond thankful for our family and their support! It was a fresh of breath air having them around to help ease the stress we felt at that time. This was also the first Father’s Day Lovey experienced. Unfortunately, we were still at the hospital at the time and we were unable to celebrate at home.
Here are a few photos taken by Lovey and myself that captures our short, yet long stay in the hospital.
