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!!!!

Mommy's First Week Back at Work

Well, what can I say? It's hard to be in the office wondering how Nathan is doing - is he eating ok, is he feeling ok, and I hope he's not getting sick.

Yesterday was my first official day back at the office and Nathan had a rough day at his Aunt Kathy's house. He was fussy, crying a lot and not eating well. We think he had a little stomach issue (like many of us these days) because when I picked him up after work he pooped twice and then was back to his happy little self. I can't tell you all what it means to me to know that Nathan is being cared for by people who love him. It's difficult to imagine him with strangers at such a young age and it made coming back to the office easier.

I have to share this with you all because its too funny -- My sister takes Emily to story time each Monday at the library and this week Nathan came along. And, as they were on their way home Nathan began crying. At which point, Emily started to cry because Nathan's cries were hurting her ears. My poor sister had to drive home with both kids crying! Well, if this episode did anything it cemented her decision that one child is enough for their family!

Pray next week is better for them!

Today, Nathan is with Nonnie and is doing much better. He had a visit from his Great-Aunt Sandy and Rosa. I'm sure they all had a great time. I wish I had been there to take pictures.

I hope that work goes well-- I know how hard it is to go back and be away from your baby! At least you know that he is in good hands and that he is very loved!
