I have a lot of catching up to do!! Cayden is adjusting well to being at home. He is now 2.5 weeks old...where has time gone??? Our first week home, he was sleeping 22+ hours a day! He has started to be more alert and has been awake 4-5 hours a day. He never cries...he just grunts! He likes to stay up late and wakes every 4 hours to feed at night. He loves to cuddle with mommy and daddy. Yesterday, he spent some time on his tummy...and loved it! He also found is thumb during this time. He smiles A LOT in his sleep...and this melts my heart everytime. I wonder if him and Braxton are conversing during these happy moments in his sleep??

I know I have mentioned that Cayden was a miracle from the start, but there is so many more miracles to report. He was completely "normal" at the 24 week appt. Doctors were still hesitant on whether or not Cayden would be born with health problems. Cayden scored 10's on his Apgar test right after birth...amazing! We were devastated and nervous when the Dr reported that he failed the hearing screen in both ears while at the hospital...BUT we prayed and prayed over Cayden and yesterday he passed his hearing screen in record time. The clinician stated that she had never had a baby that had failed both ears pass so quickly. The test was supposed to take 2 hours, and it only took 20 minutes!! God is still showing us miracles!

I would love to share every detail of our time with Cayden, but then I would be missing out on cuddle time, so I will update when I can. Jesse and I are so thankful for all of your kind words and prayers.

God Bless,
Jesse, Destiny and Cayden

Cayden Matthew is here!!!!

Cayden arrived at 6:23 on Tuesday evening. He weighed 6lbs 3 oz and is 19 in long. He is more than we ever dreamed of!!! God has answered so many prayers and shown us that miracles still happen! I am still in the hospital and have limited access to a computer, so I will update and post pics just as soon as we get settled at home. We can leave tomorrow mid-morning.

~One small prayer request~
I really want to be a mommy that breastfeeds, but unfortunately, my milk supply is just gone. I had some tuesday evening and yesterday morning, but since have had none. Please pray that in time, Cayden will be nourished via breast.

I promise to update soon...
