One of our favorite nurses has been encouraging us to take Nathan outside at the hospital so we can feel more normal. Last night we were visiting with him and felt it was cool enough to take him for a little walk.
my husband snapped this photo as soon as we exited the NICU. It felt really significant to cross that threshold.
We went downstairs and sat outside by the big waterfall. I could have stayed there all night. I wish you could have seen his little eyes searching around. He seemed to be taking in all of the different smells and sounds. Super sweet.
