Little Hunter is so incredibly cute and sweet

I will make this a quick post as I am still away in Calgary.

Hunter is doing really well. He is very cute and cuddly and so easy to snuggle with - he is just such a darling baby. His heart is perfect and he is strong and can hold his head very well - and he is so very tiny - still not yet 5 lbs. The doctors have done the genetic testing and he has Down Syndrome. It has been interesting to learn all there is to know about the path that we will be taking with him. But I find he is just so gosh darn cute and sweet that I can't imagine him being anything but the dearest child. We all just love him so much.




He makes the cutest faces - and he hardly ever cries - but he can scream pretty darn loud when a thermometer is stuck in his armpit!!!




Here is is all tucked away in his bassinet. He is so cuddly - he doesn't spend much time in there - mostly we hold him -LOL!! He is so tiny - he has to wear the little premie diapers and clothes.

I thank you all for your posts and warm wishes. I will not try to answer all the emails yet as I am too busy holding the dear baby! But I will be going home soon and then I will get back to some quilting. I did not plan to stay in Calgary this long and I didn't bring any quilting with me - I could have made a Dear Jane block or two is I had planned a bit better. Anyway. Just a quick post until I am home.

  2. What an adorable little baby! I can see why you can't put him down. Saw on the weather channel that you got DUMPED on this week ... hope it hasn't been too bad getting around in the wet snow. Hugs for you all.

  12. Pam, dear, this little treasure is so cute and lovely. I want to tell you how much I admire you to share with us about his diagnosis in such simple, courageous words.
    To everything there is a reason, and I'm sure little Hunter is going to bring something very special to the family, as well as you will be the perfect loving circle to him...
