I (only) get 30 minutes visitation with him per day…

The hospital is doing a wonderful job but of course it’s all very strange…

I hold and kiss and talk for 29 1/2 minutes > Amazed with each little movement and gesture and noise and stretch…

So far, always zonked out when i’m there in the afternoon and seems so very happy and content.

Momma & baby might come home tomorrow? or maybe the next day, regardless, it’s the best 30 minutes ever… I can hardly wait to see him every time and then miss him so I make these little “trading cards” to remember these early days.

His face is constantly changing of course and i’m already getting confused about how many days since arrival (i keep track by which shirt i’m wearing)

Are you collecting a full set? #io

Whatcha think?
