Mama woke up before the sun with Sam.  Something just felt different, and she hoped that meant you.   She waited.  Sam watched the Wheels on the Bus Movie.  She waited some more.  Daddy and Grandma woke up.  Mama decided it was time to go to the hospital.  We called the doctor and Daddy helped her get in the car.  We stopped at CVS to buy some snacks and batteries.  It was kind of chilly and very rainy outside.

When we got to the hospital things moved kind of slow.  And then Mommy could tell that you were getting closer.  And then the doctor decided that you needed to be born right away.  And so you were.  And we were so excited.  You have changed our lives, Nata boy.  We treasure each day that we get to see your smile, and hear your laugh, and watch you grow.  We are so proud of the boy you are becoming!

    Beautiful words for a special little boy. What a joy to have been able to spend some time with him, and his family, not so long ago. We love you Nata and wish for you God’s blessings now and forever.
