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!!!!

It's Great To Be King!!!!

Today is a very important day for our family. Our cousin Michelle is being admitted into the hospital for a scheduled induction - it's only a matter of hours now before they meet their son!!!

We're all waiting anxiously by the phone for the news. I'm just as excited to find out his name! There's a contest stemming from the royal baby shower and a prize still waiting to be claimed.

Speaking of royal baby shower - when Nathan was born the nurses in the NICU referred to him as "Prince Nathan," but after today, that title will no longer befit him. Why?

I've joked since Michelle's baby shower, that was literally a royally themed event for Prince Hickok, that Nathan will no longer be able to claim this title once the newest addition comes along.
Nathan now becomes KING!!!

Historically, in a royal family the line of succession goes to the oldest legitimate boy in the family - in this extended family that is now Nathan! This is the crown his Great-Aunt Kathy gave to him at the royal event.

That picture is a riot-- he looks so proud of himself! We are anxiously awaiting news of the prince as well. We can't wait to hear about the newest cousin!
