Holding Ian

We got to hold Ian tonight for the first time since Saturday. It was amazing. He's such a cute little boy. Silvi also held him (while sitting in my lap) and didn't want to let him go. Gave him lots of kisses and kept saying, "It's OK, Ian. It's OK."

And it is OK. He's processing oxygen much better, and has a healthy appetite. We got his lab test results tonight and it confirmed that he does indeed have Down Syndrome. And so we welcome the Ian we never expected, but who has already captured our hearts in these last few days.

I'll post more pictures in the coming days. Thank you all for the thoughts, words and prayers. I can't wait for you to meet our new son.

We can hardly wait to meet him and hold him in our arms. I'm glad you got to hold him. Miss being with all of you right now.
