Remembering the first time

I was just thinking about this moment today...the moment I got to hold Joshua for the first time.  It was such an incredible moment...not only because I was holding my baby for the first time, but because it happened way sooner than I ever thought it would.  Since we had no idea what condition Joshua would be in after birth, we had prepared ourselves for a long time before we could hold our new son.  What a blessing it was that within an hour of his birth, we were holding him and we got to hold him a lot that first week he was in the hospital.

I remember telling Tim how crazy it was to see our baby with so many wires and tubes.  I laugh now because he ended up have WAY more on him at one time.  But, honestly, it didn't matter.  He was our boy and he seemed more than perfect to me, not matter what any doctor said.  I miss holding him and, man, I can't wait to hold that little man again.
