Beautiful Boy!!




Well, today was the day we have been waiting for. We got to meet our beautiful baby boy today. Nathaniel is just a love! He has come a long way from the tiny little preemie he was. He is now over six pounds and has some very chubby cheeks!! Holding him was heaven and having to leave him was, well, you know.

We signed all the paperwork and Nathaniel is officially our child. What a Christmas gift! He has one additional surgery next week and then hopefully he will be able to come home shortly afterward. He is a strong little one and he has done so well! The next week or so will be busy with going back and forth to the hospital and such. But, it is all worth it! We can hardly wait for the day that we get to bring him home!
