the light at the end of the tunnel...

big sister holds layton for the first time!
i like to be wrapped up like a burrito!
i'm in a big bed, now!
little brother, meet big brother!
this was him, staring up at his big brother!

we are finally seeing it! layton was moved to the imcu~which is the intermediate care unit~today. he's lost all his tubes and wires except the ones monitoring his blood pressure, pulse ox, and respiration. he is looking so good and the surgeon told cory today that he will probably go home in a few days! i just finished feeding and burping him....two things that a mother takes for granted after awhile...but for me, it was heaven! he is starting to really act like a newborn baby...wants to be held a particular way and let's you know his disapproval otherwise. but even his crying sounds wonderful to me! i can't wait to take him home!!!! 

i've posted a few pictures for you...thanks again for all your support!

Such great news about Layton. He's doing great, and the pictures are so sweet. All precious moments.

LOL at Mac holding the deer head!

He is looking great, and how exciting to be in a new big bed with less wires!! I'm so happy he's progressing well. We'll keep our fingers crossed he is home with you guys before the end of the week for sure! We are so happy the day is coming soon!! :)
