Mom Stetler, who was such a huge help to us over the last week, headed for home late Thursday afternoon. So, in the evening, we thought it sounded so very therapeutic to go to the lake and take Brett out on the boat. We loaded up the travel system, and diaper bag and headed for the relaxing, peaceful water. It was just what the doctor ordered for two sleep-deprived new parents. The evening was simply gorgeous. A nice warm breeze blew, and we watched a beautiful, breath-taking sunset go over the horizon as we held God's creation of new life in our arms. Funny how everything has taken on a new more meaningful perspective in light of our new little fellow's arrival.
This morning we celebrated the much anticipated passing away of the remnants of the umbilical cord! (It's the small things, people). Well, it's almost bath time....gotta go. Thanks to all of you who have left comments and well-wishes. It is a huge highlight to hear from our friends and relatives, even when we can't always respond.
