Today feels like Thanksgiving and Christmas, all rolled into one

6 years ago

 

I can think of no better way to say how thankful and excited I am that Hannah and Eric got to hold their precious baby boy in their arms for the very first time today!

And today, for the first time, the little guy got to wear something besides a diaper.

Considering that Clay is 26 days old, these insignificant-sounding victories take on a whole new meaning. 

Talk about delayed gratification! I can only imagine how the parents must have felt, when I cried tears of joy myself after hearing about it on the phone.

The nurses took some pictures, and I can’t wait to see them. 

The first couple weeks of baby Clay’s life were so uncertain, but as he continues to improve, that time is beginning to seem like a bad dream now—and that puts me in the holiday spirit for sure!
