Yesterday I had the privilege of meeting this little miracle.
Born April 8th at 8:42
7lbs 11 oz 19 inches
Walker was diagnosed with a heart condition while in the womb and his parents have known that he will need surgery.
After his birth the doctors met and decided the surgery will happen this Tuesday 4/15 at 8am.
Can you all please join me in praying for Walker and his family! Pray that the surgery will go smoothly and that the heart will be fully repaired and that Walker’s journey will somehow impact the lives of those around him for a Kingdom purpose.
Here are some photos of my time with Walker and his family in the NICU yesterday.
Mommy got to give him a bottle while I was there.. This is her burping him. He grunted the whole time like “Give me that milk back mommy!”
I loved seeing his little mouth and eyes open
Big brother (just as handsome as little brother)I hear is being quite protective of baby Walker. This is mommy’s Facebook post yesterday:
“Nurse comes in to take Walker’s vitals and Riley starts watching her. Riley: That’s my brother, leave him alone.”
Nurse: I am just checking him out.
Riley: You makin him cry!!
Everyone kind of snickers.
Riley: put hims shirt on! He cold!
Sweet boy is already watching out for baby brother”
haha. that just cracked me up! Ive known Riley since he was 3 months old! I can’t believe it!
Look at that (those) sweet faces!!
The giraffe is a print mom had made to frame in Walker’s giraffe themed room when they get home from the hospital. All of his visitors are putting thumb prints on it and signing it, including the nurses. Such a great idea!
Mommy & Daddy made a heart out of their prints <3
Momma got to hold Walker for some pictures while I was there. His stats went up from all that lovin’! Of course they did!
The love just overflows!!
Of course big brother has to help out with the paci. Such a great big helper!
My favorite pictures of the day.. Riley lovin’ on Walker <3
