Seeing as I haven’t made a post on here since before our baby was born, I am glad to see that a few people are still following along on here (hi, Mother!)…. consider this my attempt to get back in the swing of things. As many of you know, we welcomed our little one a couple of months earlier than expected. I can’t say I didn’t see this scenario playing out, but it still managed to put me in a tailspin. The constant worry is starting to wear off and I feel like my shoulders are finally starting to relax. Many thanks to all of you that loved and prayed for us, sent meals, and gifts and just texted or emailed a kind word. I was so very humbled by it! We are all quite smitten (and completely distracted) by our sweet Thaddeus Hale. I could literally sit and stare at and cuddle him all day. He has already grown so much just in the time since these pictures. We are so in awe of what God has blessed us with!!
