You are truly a miracle. Your life is so treasured by your family. You were so wanted and hoped for.
Who will you be? Who will you look like? What features will you possess that look like your big brother's, if any at all? We already think you are a nice boy. You were born three hours after your due date, you caused your mother to only labor for a few hours, you started nursing right away, you were only seven pounds....thank you for starting off your worldly debut so lovely.
You are the second born, just like your mother was. We all think she turned out pretty well, so will you.
I always forget how tiny babies are when they are just born. How I can hold their entire body with one hand, how they squish into a ball and rest high up on my shoulder. How their little face is as big as my fist, and how their little bottom fits so nicely into the palm of my hand.
I got to come and meet you Dominic, the day you came home from the hospital. Your mother and I ate a lot, held you a lot, and watched three other babies (George, Evelyn and Andrew) play who grew very big the moment you were brought home.
It was a wonderful two days. I think it's the nicest place to be, in the house when a newborn comes home.
Congratulations Laura and Jarod!!!
