Baby Nash is here....

After three weeks of strict bedrest in the hospital, little Nash was finally born! He is breathing on his own and is doing great. He weighs about four and a half pounds and is almost 18 inches long. He has been catching on to everything so fast and is getting stronger every day.

The second we saw him, there was an instant connection and confirmation that he was waiting for us to bring him into our family. We can't describe the joy and completeness we feel. He is so sweet and being around him brings us so much peace. What a sweet little guy we're blessed with along with Abram, Nolan and Tate.

Thank you to all of you that prayed on Nash's behalf. We completely recognize the power of prayer in his well being, and hope to repay the kindness that so many have shown us. It has truly been life changing.

Bright eyed n' bushy tailed

His little hands
The first time we got to hold him. Only Teeny knows the joy she feels here.
Tummy time.
Little perfect toes.
Again, thank you to everyone that has kept us in their prayers, offered us help, or just wanted to help. It means the world to us to know that so many people, many that we don't know that well, have our family in their thoughts.
