J.R. Smith Holds His Preemie Baby Girl Dakota For The First Time:

Dakota Smith’s Breathing Tube Removed

I’m overjoyed to share this fantastic update with you!

J.R. Smith‘s premature baby girl, Dakota Smith, had her breathing tube removed on Tuesday night.

The NBA baller’s wife, Jewel Smith, shared the exciting news on their blog.

Read an excerpt below.

We arrived outside of Kota Bears room and proceed to walk in, after I sanitized my hands my next step is always straight to peek into her bed and see if she is sheepin (sleeping) or awake pulling at her CPAP continuously attempting to snatch it off.  BAABY BYE!!! when I bent over and looked at my daughters face and seen that she had a Ram Cannula on I almost passed the hell out.  I started jumping up and down laughing and screaming in disbelief.  My aunt Pat told me that I kept spinning in circles, which by the way I do not remember.  A few minutes later Dakota’s primary nurse joined us in her room, she walked in with this huge smile on her face 🙂 I looked at her and said “do you see our baby girl?”  I cannot believe my eyes this is UNREAL!

Jewel also detailed the joy of holding her precious baby girl for the very first time.

I mean I was beyond excited to hold our 2lb 13oz miracle in the palm of my hands for the very first time.  What some mothers get to experience within the first 2 minutes of giving birth I had to wait 78 days but, what I will say is it was worth the wait because those very feelings, emotions and joy that took over my body trumps it all.  I kissed her little cheeks, smelled her neck, gazed into her eyes and just smiled at life…this life…her life that has now become our life! To God Be The Glory…I thank you.

God is so great!

Keep thriving, sweet Dakota!
