    He is early but you know how due dates are they change depending what the doctor had for lunch that day. My DILis so small that my new grandson is getting cramped and wants out

    Because of Luke James deciding to come early the parents are not quite as ready as they want to be.
    SO I bought $98 worth of Diapers Newborn, first month, and some for his big brother (3y/o) who is not quite out of Diapers yet.
    I was going to buy a car seat too but I can only get so much blood out of my turnips

    That would be tough leaving baby there. Praying he'll be home really soon & maybe mom can get a little rest before he is!! A healthy mommy is just as important!!!

    Glad you head a good visit! Get some rest now.

    You probably escaped Minot just in time; we lived in North Dakota for two years and it wasn't just the cold, but the wind!
