He’s here. He’s finally here.
Our little Niklas joined us last Saturday, Nov. 30, on a cold and snowy afternoon. After nine-plus months of waiting to finally meet our little guy, Martin and I couldn’t be more excited to finally meet our baby boy, hold him in our arms and start being our own little family.
We brought him home in a white-knuckle blizzard, with Martin driving ever so carefully over icy roads as we headed back to our cozy home in the hangar. And because we know it will be only a matter of time before this tiny bundle is big enough to start begging to fly the planes in the hangar, we’re savoring these small moments that seem so momentous.
Thanks to all of you who have sent your warm wishes, hopes and blessings our way these past many months as we prepared to welcome Niklas. Your kind thoughts and compassion have meant so much to me and Martin.
I will be blogging in the coming few weeks, though perhaps at a bit slower of a pace. We’ve got plenty to keep us busy! And we have plenty to learn. Not just about diapers and feeding and catching naps where and when we can — but also about just how much our hearts have grown simply from meeting this new little person.
We can’t wait to teach him about the world. And we can’t wait to see what he will show us about how beautiful life is.
