Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

33 Weeks and Only Weeks Away!!!

Danny and I visited our specialist this morning and the baby has gained weight -- weighing in at 4.1 lbs but has dropped down to the 10th percentile from the 15th two weeks ago.

So, what does this mean? It means that the specialist has taken me out of work as of today. She really didn't give me a choice this time. She said at this point I want you home eating and sitting on the couch. No shopping - nothing. We have to continue monitoring his weight to make sure it doesn't drop any lower. I'll do whatever I need to to make sure he's healthy.

For those of you that know me -- you know I'm not a television watcher -- so, I'll be doing a lot of reading. Read any good books lately? Please pass along any suggestions.

Now, for a little better news - we got to see his hair this morning!!!! His little peach fuzz! However, he decided to not cooperate for pictures -- we were only able to get one of half his face. The picture is cute because he has his hand turned up on his forehead like he is stressed out! It's so funny. Then when she tried to get another one he put his hand in front of his face - like, "talk to the hand mom" and then the little turkey turned his back on us!!!!! We weren't able to see his face for the rest of the visit.

My next visit is this afternoon to the regular OB for the non-stress test and appointment. I am also happy to report that Nathan has turned and is in position! So, no C-section at this point.

Thanks for keeping up to date on Nathan's progress. I happen to think he may be joining us before his scheduled arrival - call it a gut feeling.

Take Care and Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
We love you
Kandi & Danny
