Boy Meets World


Look who’s here!

Nugget officially put in his appearance on Wednesday, March 11, at 2:22 p.m.  That’s 38 weeks, 5 days pregnant – full term, basically – and I was happy with that.  He slept in my room with me and avoided any NICU time, which felt like a miracle after our experience with Peanut.  And since I know folks are wondering, Nugget is really…


But, just like with Peanut, we’ll keep calling him Nugget on here.  He is, after all, still a little fella – 6 pounds, 9 ounces at birth, and 19.5 inches long.  Gigantic in comparison to Peanut, but still a little guy.



I think he looks just like his dad.  They have the same almond-shaped eyes and the same mouth (which Peanut shares as well – I’m the odd one out) and while I know you can’t really tell this young, I think Nugget inherited Dad’s nose, too.  I love that hubby has a mini of his own, now, since I always get a kick out of hearing how much alike Peanut and I look.


Nugget is still brand new and has been sleeping most of the days away (the better to party all night, Mom and Dad!) but every so often I get a look at his bright eyes and they melt my heart each time.  He fits right into our family and we are already head over heels in love with him.


And now to begin the rest of the story… after some more snuggles with my new little love.

    • Thanks! We’re very excited to have the little guy here with us! I’m sure we are in for all sorts of adventures now…

    • Thanks! His middle name is after my brother. His first name doesn’t have any family significance; we just like it. (And we like the meaning: “God’s gift.” That felt appropriate for him since he is a gift in so many ways.)
