This is my husband Gabe holding our newborn baby boy Thomas right after he was born. Gabe was the first person to hold him. Thomas's birth mom had a c-section, so they brought him out to us about 5 minutes he was born. We went up to the nursery with him, and they handed him to Gabe. Before this he was terrified of babies and didn't want to hold them for fear of breaking them, but not with his little boy! Happiest day of our lives.
Day 11 is a picture that makes me sad
This is my dad and brother. This picture was taken 2 weeks after my mom passed away, and we were in Hawaii. My dad had been planning a "farewell" trip with my mom to Hawaii, but she didnt' make it. We decided that the three of us, our now family, would make the trip instead. It wasn't the most fun trip, but I am glad we did it. This is probably the first picture of our "family" after my mom died.
