Pictures!

Sorry it took so long to get pictures posted. It's been a bit busy around here. The picture above is just after he was born. I got to hold him for about 2 minutes before they took him to the NICU. I haven't gotten to hold him since, but I can touch him and kiss him all I want to.

The cute hat was knitted by my sister Shavonne. It's the only thing he has on right now, but he's on a warmer, so he's just fine.

His cleft lip is very minor compared to what it could have been. It is just his lip, not his pallet, and it doesn't hamper his sucking action at all. In fact, he LOVES his binkie! It gives me great hope that when I'm able to hold him and breastfeed him, he won't have any problems.
Kimble is getting moved over to the Children's Hospital in an hour or so. He will have more tests to decide when his surgery is, and what direction the doctor's will go. I am doing wonderful. I have the strength I need to be by him and love him. Thank you for all your prayers!! I'll continue to update everyday.
