Best day..ever!!

So many emotions today. Everything was so positive today with my visit. First of all, Cora has already checked one thing off her to-do list for going home!! She no longer has her PICC line!! Little baby unicorn is on nothing but breastmilk!! She still gets a little calories added, but this is fantastic news!! Only a few more goals to meet!! She’s on 14ml of breastmilk, her max is 17, so she is doing really well there too!! Today I changed my first diaper!! Thankfully, she was easy on me and she didn’t poop!! 😂😂😂 And then, for the greatest thing that happened today, I was able to hold her for the first time. The nurse put her on me for the first time and an overwhelming feeling came over me. And I cried, well more of a whimper because I wanted to be so gentle with her, and I felt whole. I felt like everything in the world had stopped at that moment for us. It’s a feeling I can’t describe. We got to have skin to skin time for 2 and 1/2 hours, which at one point I was at such peace, that we dozed off together. It was a beautiful moment. And at that moment, everything felt right in the world.
