Last night I was sitting in my room (surprise) when there was a knock at the door. The girls opened it and let my mom in who said she 'forgot something' from her earlier visit. I looked up in time to see my sister carrying my nephew in her arms round the corner and I lost it!! I have pined for this little baby boy in my arms. I have waited by my phone every single day for a picture of his sweet little face and I didn't know when I'd be able to make the trip to see him in person and here he was in my little recovery room!! Of course, I started to cry in amazement and disbelief and mostly gratitude. I was overwhelmed that my sister would make the trip with her sweet new baby and that I was home and well and able to be here with this most amazing blessing. Needless to say, I spent the next few hours in utter baby bliss. I'm sharing these pictures in spite of my swollen face and bruised skin and exhausted body because when I look at them right now, what I see is victory. I am alive and life is good.

He is, of course, even more precious in person than in any picture and my sister is even more patient and endearing as a Mommy than I could have bragged about before. I will never forget this amazing visit and can't wait to see him again soon!
