Yes, Tis the season where we commemorate the birth of God In the Flesh, but every year for the rest of my life, when December comes around I will also be celebrating the birth of another child. Last night, 8 pound 20 inch Nicholas Michael was born into the Shust Family.
Long story short, we left the house at 2:33AM, arrived in the room at 2:55 and Nicholas was crying by 3:18! His uncle Nick (pictured above), after whom he's named (who also shares the name of my Grandfather killed in WWII) came by at 5am, and we were able to introduce the Nicks to each other. I sent my Parents a picture they had to unscramble to figure out the name.
My Dad got it first. Maybe because it's now the name of his dad, a son and a grandson. He knows those letters!
Here are some photos from the day: hope you enjoy them and Thank you for ALL of the Congrats and the well wishes! They are MOST appreciated! We feel loved!
