NICU and Riggins

I am going through my camera today and found these pictures. I don't ever remember Riggins in this bed in the NICU. They must have moved him to a new bed after the kids came and before I went down for the first time to the NICU.

The NICU is a scary place but we were very blessed this time to have a baby that did not look sad with all his wires. The wires seem scary but I have learned after two NICU babies that they wires are a blessing and it is the oxygen that makes you feel sad. I think it also helps when your baby is the biggest baby in the room.

This is the bed I remember.

Riggins spent six days in the NICU and then was allowed to come home. Truly a blessing to spend such a short amount of time for being born three and a half weeks early.
