A Few Pictures…

…of the cutest baby ever in honor of his official due date (which was today) and to tide his grandparents through until they can actually meet him!  🙂

Isn’t he the cutest?  And he’s ours to keep–all the legal paperwork and state approvals came through on Tuesday.  Thanks so much, all of you, for your prayers!

We have a few things to finish up here in Colorado, including some visits with Cailina (who we’ve affectionately nicknamed “Mina”–so much friendlier a title than “birthmother”!) and her family.  Please pray for all of us as we say goodbye to eachother!  Our time here in Colorado has flown by, and it’s hard to believe we’re nearing its end.  We plan to fly home to Richmond early next week. 

In the meantime, we continue to enjoy loving on our baby.  He’s pretty easy to snuggle and cuddle!  He’s still very laid back about life, and lets us know his preferences mostly by grunts.  The hardest part so far has been adjusting our sleep schedules–Tim and I are both pretty much running on adrenaline.  But of course, our little Nathan is worth every minute!

    This brings tears to my eyes. How infinitely special it is for you to have Nathan and for him to have you!
