Sentimental Friday Find

My Friday Find this week was a little sentimental (and a few days late!). We inherited my brother's old computer Baptism weekend. My laptop went ca put and he got a new one! I was looking at his pictures and came across this album from the first few days of Connor's life. I was just blown away by how small he was (3lb. 12 oz. on the scale!) and the fact that he is now sucking his thumb, giggling, eating carrots and sleeping in his big boy crib in the next room. I still remember just how small he was and what he looked like the first time I saw him. Parts of the day and days after are hazy, but I hope to never forget the first time they put him in my arms.
This is the video that my brother took 27 hours after his arrival, when I FINALLY got to see him and hold him for the first time. I remember being in shock that he was actually here, and blown away by how beautiful he was. I told him how much we loved him and that I was so sorry I couldn't keep him in any longer. I remember Bj snuggling in behind us as we looked at our little family for the first time. I remember how sweet the kiss he gave me on the top of my head was (and how scary that head of hair looked!!) and how nothing in my life had ever felt as right as that moment. My sweet husband and my beautiful baby - my mom and brother all in one place.

Well, just thought I would share that little memory. It was such a sweet one and I couldn't help but get a little emotional when I saw that little video!

Oh Ellen, that was so beautiful!! I am so glad Connor is so healthy now and you and BJ are such great parents! I can't wait to see him when you come in JUly to meet Reagan.
Love,
Nancy
