Early Christmas Present

We had an unintentional early gift this year.
It wasn't supposed to be delivered until next year.
Sometimes early presents are pretty awesome.

After a few days in the NICU he got to come home.

Safe in daddy's hands.

OHHHHH...SO SWEET! NOTHING COULD BE A BETTER GIFT FOR CHRISTMAS THAN A BEAUTIFUL BABY...IN FACT NOTHING HAS EVER BEEN A BETTER GIFT THAN THE LITTLE ONE FROM BETHLEHAM! :D

How beautiful those pictures are! Congratulations!

And thanks so much for commenting on my blog. No -- these are not my original Tammy doll, etc. I get replacements on Ebay. But I'm pretty happy to have them. Funny huh, that having things from our childhood can bring us such pleasure in our 50's! Kinda cool!

Merry Christmas! It grows nearer. You got a lovely gift already! (Can't wait to get grandkids!)

Congratulations!! Adorable little baby for the Christmas Season.

Yesterday in church I sat behind a young mom holding her 3 or 4 month old infant all swaddled in her arms as they told about the Saviors birth. I thought how sweet it would be to have an infant to hold and love at Christmas time.

So glad Kendrix is healthy and doing well! I can't imagine how excited you must be.

Enjoy that little bundle of joy and have a HAPPY week of Christmas!
