A year ago today we welcomed into our family are beautiful baby boy, Levi. He arrived a month early and this turned our world upside down. Still to this day I can not really think about that time without crying. What we thought would just be a long weekend in the hospital turned into a very long month. Countless hours spent sitting next to his bed wishing and hoping we could just hold him that day least of all touch him. As a mother not being able to take care of my sick baby was breaking my heart. I knew that if they would just let me hold him it would make everything better. After a week or so a very sweet night nurse told us that if we came in the NICU at 10pm that night that we would be able to hold him. As I walked up to the hospital that night I felt as if I were going on a first date or something. I was so nervous to hold this little baby that I had been waiting for for so many months. Needless to say I enjoyed every minute. After countless procedures and tests we finally were able to go home. In the months that followed, I have already seen so much happiness he is going to bring to this world. He has brought so much joy to so many people. I am already so proud of him and can not wait to see what great things he will do.
