He is here!

Well, it is probably time for me to post that Micah Jay Nelson is finally here!! On February 16th at 7:55am Micah came into the world at a whopping 10lbs 9oz and 20.5 inches long! We give all the glory to God for Micah’s safe and healthy arrival. We look forward to seeing him grow and become all God wants him to be.

Out of all of my pregnancies this one was the winner for being the most “DONE” at the end! To say I was “over it” would be an extreme understatement! I am pretty sure the fact that he was so big contributed greatly to my discomfort. ;)

Getting ready to go to the hospital… (the only reason I am smiling is because I know the end is near.)

DSC_0360 The past 12 days have been obviously an adjustment ( who needs sleep? right?)… but I think we will do quite well as a family of five.


Micah has made it very clear… that he likes being close to his mommy. ;)


Micah’s sisters are so excited to have a baby brother.DSC_0446

He has a very proud daddy.



Getting ready to leave the hospital on the 19th…





Needless to say we are in love, smitten with those chubby cheeks and bursting with pride.

    I have my calendar marked to call you this week - I knew you would need a couple weeks to settle in and heal from the surgery etc.

    We were at Biola last night and I kept thinking .. they are right here - Right HERE! :o)

    Congratulations, Mom of both sexes!

    Now you and Josh will have to learn to do "zone" parenting as tag-teaming is out the window. Josh will probalby draw a schemata for day trips! ;o)
