Brady Nicholaus Long

Sorry for the delay in announcing the birth of our son Brady Nicholaus Long. Our computer broke two days before we headed to the hospital so, needless to say, I have felt very disconnected. I was admitted into the hospital on January 13 to start the induction but my body was just not ready. Little Brady came into the world on January 15, 2009 at 7:05 pm via c-section. He was 6lbs. 6 oz. and 18 1/2 inches long. We have been home since Sunday and are loving every moment with our little miracle. As I have taken time to reflect on our journey to having this little one, I cannot deny what a miracle he is to us and our families. My medical history is long and challenging at best and to now hold our precious son seems like a dream. He is the sweetest boy, very even tempered. I am so grateful for all the tender mercies of my Savior and for his watchful eye over Brady and I. We just feel so blessed and are enjoying each moment with him. Here are some pictures - ENJOY!
