Brooks Edmund Ritchie
6 pounds 3 ounces, 17 1/2 inches
Because he was born at only 35 weeks, Brooks earned himself a mandatory trip to the NICU. We've spent the last 10 days here working on taking a bottle and growing stronger. While it breaks my heart to leave him at the hospital each night, I know that 1) he has some pretty amazing nurses taking care of him and 2) there are 2 little boys at home who need some sense of "normal" in their lives as well. We pray that Brooks will be strong enough to come home soon and are so excited for the chaos that lies ahead.
Welcome to our crazy, Mr. Brooks. We love you with all our hearts.
