~More pics of Elijah's first days!~

Here are the pics that I had promised to post. The computer I have been using to blog with will not be available to use for a few days, so when you don't hear from me, you'll know why. I've put a ton of pics on here for you to enjoy. =)
~Pastor Eisenhart and my parents visiting Elijah and I in the hospital.~~Precious little Elijah!~
~Mommy's 4th treasure from Heaven!~
~I LOVE THIS PIC...Elijah's hand holding on to Mommy's hand!~
~Aunt Nesi and Lorna picked up my neice Natasha (who stayed with me all night and all day and was a great help) Elijah and I and took us home from the hospital.

~Aunt Nesi, baby Elijah and I heading home to Laura's house.~
~The next morning Natasha and Kimberly made me a breakfast tray and brought it to me in bed. =)
~The nice breakfast tray that they made me.~
~Kimberly holding the welcoming "It's a boy" balloon that Laura tied to her mailbox.~ (There is a horse farm right across from Laura's house and a girl from our church works there. One of the horses just delivered a colt and they made up a sign saying, "IT'S A BOY! 53 LBS. 36 INCHES LONG!" The girl from our church tried HARD to get that sign to put by Laura's mailbox and my "It's a boy" balloon. All of Laura's neighbors that saw how HUGE I was before I delivered would have probably believed that sign. HA!)
~My SWEETHEART got home safely to us from Colombia! He surprised me and came in 2 hours earlier than I was expecting.~
~Showing Daddy our newest member of our family!~ =D
Phillip brought me a beautiful flower, a baby rattle, and the WORLD'S SWEETEST card that he had written for me!!~ (Also, I forgot to post a pic of the beautiful flowers that 1. our Christian Nation Church, 2. Daddy and Moma's church in Westfield (Union Friends) and 3. Grandma and Grandpa Dickinson all sent to me in the hospital!)
~Our adorable doll baby!~
~Uncle Michael, Aunt Beth and Isaiah came to see little Elijah.~
~We had a nice visit together with them and the Hausmans. Melinda Shirk brought in our yummy supper...Thanks Melinda!~
~Uncle Michael holding tiny Elijah!~
~Kimberly, Sarah, Noah and Elijah on Elijah's first Sunday. Phillip took the kids and went to church and my sister Laura stayed with Elijah and I.~
~Uncle Daryl finally gets to hold Elijah. (I didn't realize that he hadn't even held him.)

~Here I am...On the way to the hospital to have Elijah...! May 14th!
~Here I am...May 20th...6 days later...happy to be rid of that HUGE HEAVY baby bump...and THRILLED to have our Elijah where I can hold and kiss him now!!!~~May 20th...Our Church had a special Mother-Daughter Tea party and Jesus helped Elijah and I to be able to go! It was a special time to be with my 2 special daughters, and the other ladies of our church which includes my sweet sister Laura and her girls too.~
~Laura and I~
~Kimberly and Sarah, Brittany their cousin and Bryanna.~~Sarah, Darla her cousin, Anna, and Kiana.
~We had yummy food, great fellowship and an all around special time as Mother's and Daughters.~

I just took Elijah for his one week old check up and the doctor said that he looks perfectly healthy and has gained back up to his birth weight, so nursing is going great! Thank the Lord!
Elijah and my family are precious, Life is good, God is awesome, and I'm exhausted~so I'll sign off for now. =D

He is so beautiful, Heather, I know I have said that every post!! You look awesome and I know you must feel better not being so off balance. That would have been so funny to have that horse sign next to the balloon. I'm jealous of all the fun you and Laura are having!! I miss my sister so badly!
