What a Champ!

Asa is home! Can you believe it?

From Shannon: "Before Asa was born - 7 weeks premature - the Neonatologist told us that he would spend an absolute minimum of 3 weeks in the hospital but 4-5 weeks would be more accurate as a minimum. We'd then go from there. Just over 3 weeks old - still 3 1/2 weeks before he should be here - Asa is well enough to go home! He's now 4 lbs 4 oz and 16 inches (a gain of 1 lb 3 oz and almost an inch in length). He's on no medication. As the weather here is cold/rainy/windy, we will only be leaving the house to go to doctor appointments. That's okay with us. The past 5 weeks is a blur."

Here are some adorable pictures of Asa, first on his way home (in his special car seat... he's not big enough for a regular one yet!) and then home with Mommy & Daddy. He is absolutely perfect; he actually looks like a little baby doll. Every parent thinks his or her baby is the cutest, but I think Shannon & Eric would be right on this one. He's hands down one of the cutest babies I've seen.
