Merry Christmas Y'all!

Witten's first Christmas! We spent the holiday at my parent's house in Goochland, VA. My cousins, Jimmie and Carla came to spend the day with us.

Guinness and Pepper can't go a Christmas without their bows.

Making eggnog.

Carla and Jimmie loved seeing Witten.


Santa brought Witten lots of presents.

NICU & Coming Home

Because he came week 34, Witten had to stay in the hospital. This was his home for 9 days in the NICU. Aside from Jaundice, (which I feel almost every baby gets) the doctors wanted him to gain a certain amount of weight before he could leave.

Visiting with Daddy.

Our first overnight with Witten. We got to stay in the hospital and have him in the room with us. It was lots of fun, great trial run. We saw that sleep was a thing of the past.

We get to bring Witten home!

The carrier is so BIG!

Home sweet home
