a precious, little gift, all bundled up . . .
I had forgotten so many things . . . the smell of their skin . . . one could just drink it in . . .
the silly little grumpy faces . . .
the adorable little breaths . . . tiny fingers & toes . . .
as difficult as the last 39 weeks might have been, as well as the heartbreaks before that . . . well this moment, it was all worth it :) I couldn't have asked for anything more & I feel so blessed to have this little man in my life :)
In survival mode right now . . . little sleep & a big brother named Ryan needing LOTS of time & reassurance from mommy. I didn't realize how difficult the transition might be for him - being the center of my world for the past 4 years he is trying really hard to be a great big brother but I think it is tough for him & he is a very sensitive kid. Working on tackling (and treasuring) each day as it comes . . . thank you all for your constant support, warm wishes, and prayers!!! Be back soon - promise :)
