FC: Graham William | December 29, 2011
1: Nine long months passed by as we waited for your arrival. You have been greatly loved and much anticipated. Daddy and I went to the hospital on December 28th at 9:00 p.m. to be induced. We could hardly wait to meet you, our baby boy. You could hardly wait to meet us apparently! Around 12:00 a.m., my labor started naturally and after a fast and furious two hour labor you were born at 2:23 a.m.! | Blessings
2: Celebrate Life | This is a moment we will never forget! | It's as if time stood still the moment you were born and we saw your beautiful face. A flood of pure joy!
3: I will praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14
4: You are a little miracle. Words can not express the thankfulness we have for our "Baby Graham"!
6: 8 pounds and 14 ounces of pure joy 21 and a half inches of celebration
7: B a b y
8: Joy | Daddy's boy........Mommy's joy!
10: So many firsts, and we are amazed at the wonder of this new little life!
12: Love | Elijah, Samuel, and Eden are so thrilled to have a baby brother. They love you so much!
13: The love of our family..... | ....Is life's biggest blessing!
14: Aunt Lori (pregnant with Cullie) and Nana Bruce | Grandaddy Bruce,, Daddy, and Graham: Three generations of Bruces | Papa Hutchins was sick so he caught a nap rather than spread germs. | Cousin Ryleigh and Aunt Jana (Uncle Dwayne came after work but some how we missed getting a picture.)
15: Family | Memaw Willie Mae Bruce giving some words of wisdom. | Uncle Bert and cousin McKinley | Marme Hutchins and Aunt Rachel | Marme and Aunt Rachel were in the room for your birth. Aunt Rachel was in charge of taking pictures but got sick from nervousness. My friend, Christi Cross was there to take over.
17: Your arrival was such an amazing event. We treasure every memory. We enjoyed you birth with family and many friends. We spent 4 days in the hospital. We were anxiously awaiting the time when we could take you home, but had to stay the extra day. Your blood work came back "questionable" for infection due to group B strep, so the doctors wanted to start you on some strong antibiotics. Daddy and I were so concerned about our sweet baby Graham, but spent time in prayer and trusted God for your health. What a relief when your test results were good! In fact, we spent your first New Year's d Eve celebrating in our hospital room. Not much of a party, but we knew it was going to be a great year ahead!
18: We could hardly wait to get you home! Papa, and Marme had been staying home with Elijah, Samuel, and Eden...and they all could hardly wait for us to get home. They had decorated the house for your arrival and it was a wonderful, freezing cold day! | So sweet from head to toe!
19: Home | Your nursery was in our room. Mommy and Daddy wanted you close by and there was a big cozy chair for snuggling. We love you so much, you're the perfect addition to our family!
