God is so good - when Jessica brought Esther's four youngest siblings to visit, they were moving Esther into a new bed and light set up (her biliruben counts keep climbing so they wanted to set her up with two sets of lights), and they allowed all of the children to come in and interact with Esther while I held her!
Here's photos of our time together -
Elizabeth an Daniel get to touch her and talk to her!
She was really making some great eye contact - for a while as in this photo she only had eyes for her mommy...sniff, sniff
My shirt says it all!
Even big sis got to hold and bond with her! Jessica soooo wanted to hold her - she hadn't been able to for even a second yet and it was killing her!
This was just before they left, and Esther was in her new set up.
Our time together with Esther was so precious and she was wide awake and looking around and enjoying time in our arms!Â Praise the Lord for this precious time!
I'm so glad we had this time, as soon after that a new baby with problems came in and I had to leave the nursery and have not been allowed back in as they are going to have to transport that precious little one down to Children's hospital in Seattle. So I'm trying to wait patiently to go back in to be with Esther again.
