LENNON JAY NILSSON
What a long time its been! I have been meaning to post about this miraculous day for a while now. First...what a cute name...Lennon! I love it and love him. He is beautiful...truly. He was the second he came out. I have to thank Rach and B for letting me be a part of this beautiful experience. I have been there twice myself with my own 2 kids...but to see it from a whole new perspective, it was amazing. To see my little sister have her first baby, and if I ever would have imagined I would witness B become a dad back in the good ol' high school days, well, words can't express! I don't mean to get all mushy, but you can't leave out the fact that God was in that room handing us the most precious gift this world can offer, and He was felt. Some of the pictures posted are of Rachel and B when they first set eyes on their newborn, and the pictures speak for themselves. The emotions, just typing about it now makes me cry, were so intense and special. The instant love was incredibly alive in both their eyes. I couldn't keep my own cheeks dry! Every time I look at Lennon, it feels like someone is sucking the air out of my chest. He is precious. The feeling that a new life brings is wonderful, and I'm really really really fighting a battle within...how bad do I want one! Soon enough, but anyway, it was really something and I will cherish that experience forever. Thanks again Rach for letting me in on your miracle, it was so...speechless.
