Last week we met this handsome little fellow, our new nephew, Ezra. He decided to make an early appearance (even earlier than his scheduled pre-term c-section), and gave us all a little scare. However, Ezra and his Mom and Dad are home now and everyone is doing well...not to mention he is just about the sweetest thing I've ever seen. Just look at Avery holding his little hand...she is completely obsessed with her new cousin.
Little Ezra, you should know that your Mom and Dad are two of the most amazing people I have ever known. I am also blessed to call your Mom my sister. She is beautiful and funny, strong and smart, loving and kind. You are one lucky little guy. Last Tuesday began as any ordinary, cloudy March morning. But your birth made it extraordinary. That morning you made my sister's heart whole. It's hard to imagine anyone wanting a baby more than your Mom and Dad wanted you. You will be loved beyond measure (and probably spoiled a little bit, too). It's an honor to welcome you to our family.
