Our newest little Nephew

Our newest nephew, Mark, came home from the hospital yesterday! He was in the NICU for 8 weeks due to his premature birth. He is doing great! Greg and Holly are glad they don't have to take the nightly journey to the hospital to visit him anymore.

Ja, Brigham, and I made a "Welcome Home Baby Mark" sign. Brigham made the W a rainbow and did a great job! Brigham was very helpful all morning and was actually excited to see Mark (he says he hates babies). He even waited outside for 30 minutes for his parents to bring Mark home from the hospital.
Here's the whole family. Caleb couldn't keep his eyes off of Mark. We couldn't get him to look at the camera. The whole morning he kept pointing to Mark and saying, "Baby." He wanted to hold Mark and would get very upset if Mark was moved away from him. It was very cute.
Now Ja and I can get real newborn practice and see what life is like with a newborn baby.

Yay, I am so glad he is home. How did they do that for 8 weeks? Did Holly stay at the hospital all day? DId you babysit the kids most of the time? That was a cute idea to make them a sign. You are so sweet. Oh, the W colored in rainbow colors adds quite a good touch!

Who does that "Camo Kid" belong to, anyway?
