Kangaroo Care

Since Sharon has had this bacteria, we've had to wear gloves, gowns and masks, which means that I haven't been able to do Kangaroo Care with her. Kangaroo Care is skin to skin cuddling with the baby and mom. I got to do it twice before the gowns, but haven't been able to do it since. Sharon's doctor recently got the approval for us to do Kangaroo Care again, and I am so excited! We did it on Saturday, and it was so wonderful! She is so soft and warm, and fits so well down the front of my shirt, just like a little joey. Maybe we'll start calling her Shari Jo =). Here's a picture of the new Grandma with Sharon!

Hey you guys, that is so cool "kangaroo care" I like that name. Shari jo looks so good. Ammon told me today that Shari is past the 3 lb. mark "Super". Give her a little hug for me. Our Prayers are with you.
Love to all Mom W.
