the eric update – day 14: a late night massage from mama and holding hands!

day 14: a late night massage from mama

kris decides to give eric a late night massage to celebrate his 2nd week birthday. the massage helps keep his thin skin from drying out under the heat lamps.

day 14: holding hands

during the massage, eric decides he really just wants to hold kris’ hand.

it’s amazing to see him actively search out her finger, grasp it tighly and resist her pulling her hand away.

day 14: bruised foot

i’m on a self imposed massage hiatus, as you can see the results of what happened the last time i gave him a massage.

yes. i bruised my premature son’s foot because i rubbed it too hard. the lesson is that you don’t have to rub very hard at all to bruise a micropreem, which makes giving a massage more difficult than it might seem.
