Ever since our little grandson, Andrew, came home from the hospital after 132 days in the NICU, we had been wanting to go see him! He's now a little over six months old and getting cuter by the minute!
After giving the new parents time to settle in with taking care of Andrew's needs, the end of October found us headed to Atlanta to spend a few days with Eric, Sarah, and baby Andrew! What a wonderful and joyful time to finally get to hold Andrew at home and to visit with Eric and Sarah and see how they are managing their little family....even with oxygen tanks, feeding tubes, and the myriad doctors' appointments for Andrew. They are doing a terrific job!
Now I have the fun task of looking through a zillion (well, almost!) pictures of the little cutie and posting photos of each member of the family getting to interact with this little munchkin whom we all absolutely loved getting to know! You'll have to overlook any gushing. :)
Here's sweet Andrew eyeing the dinosaur we brought him from our trip to The Ark and The Creation Museum earlier this summer. I love his little face in this photo: Grampa making funny faces at smiling Andrew: Aunt Hannah gets a turn holding a sleepy Andrew, who is quite attached to his Wubbanub. He was so cute holding onto his little giraffe!Uncle Jonny...ooh, boy, crazy Uncle Jonny! He campaigned daily to make himself Andrew's favorite Uncle, although I think he'll have some competition from the other uncles! And since Granny Deb is writing this update, let's post another photo of Andrew's Granny holding him...sweet! Two sisters together....it was a wonderful few days for them to re-connect. We all miss Sarah so much around here! Even with feeding tubes, beeps from the monitor, and pulling the pole around to whomever was holding him next, Andrew made his way around to everyone with no problem! And finally, a thought from the sweet baby:
Here are Andrew's sweet loving parents...what a joy to be in their home and witness the Lord's blessings on them: Well, too soon it was time to leave and head north to the annual NCFIC conference where we'd spend the next few days. Here, we're on the road headed towards the mountains of Asheville and Black Mountain, NC, where the conference is held each October: Stay tuned for the next post on our time at the NCFIC and the Fear of God Conference.
