    I just keep staring at that photo, marveling at how absolutely beautiful your sweet boy is. Welcome to the world of being a Boy Mom. He is so blessed to have you all hand selected to be his family. Can’t wait to see and hear more. Hope you’re recovering well. Enjoy your hospital “retreat” and solo time with him! Congratulations to ALL of you. xxoo
