Remembering this morning, that when my sweet Noah was a newborn and in the Special Care nursery with and IV in his head and a feeding tube down his nose, we had to be very careful to not overstimulate him or his vitals would change, for the worse. His breathing coordination would become confused, his heart rate would change. Calm and steady holding, no rocking, not too much talking. Just sit and hold him, they would tell me. You don't need to talk or even move. Just sit and hold him. Things change and lessons are learned during times like these. Sometimes maybe some of the most important lessons.
