Auntie and Uncle


The past three days have been filled with much emotion and one tiny bundle of joy.

Late yesterday evening, JD and I received the good news that weโ€™re prematurely a new auntie and uncle!!! JDโ€™s sister gave birth to a son and we couldnโ€™t be happier! ๐Ÿ™‚

Little Corey Preston wasnโ€™t expected until late September, but due to some serious health complications, JDโ€™s sister was hospitalized on Wednesday. Weโ€™ve been patiently waiting for Coreyโ€™s arrival and we finally were allowed into the NICU this morning to see him. Corey will be in the hospital for a while until he can breathe on his own, but by the looks of his personality, we can already tell heโ€™s a fighter!

This is Corey’s adorable toes and his daddy’s fingers…

Soooo, I know we look totally dorky, but it’s our first official picture as auntie and uncle…I had to post it! ๐Ÿ™‚

And here’s our lil fighter…

**On a sidenote, I want to thank my clients for their patience and understanding during this time…I promise to catch up on email and responses ASAP!**

    Amazing. My brother was premature….and I am studying to be a NICU nurse. I am sure that he is in excellent care. Congratulations to your family and may God bless and care for your new tiny nephew and his mommy and daddy. Wishing you lots of rest!

    Hi Jasmine! I felt compelled to leave a comment because i hold all preemies dear to my heart! First of all, congrats to the new blessing to yours and JD’s family. Judging by the pictures you took (even just from his feet and his facial expression, hehe) I can assure you he’s going to be just fine! Although he’s gonna have to overcome some *preemie* obstacles.. please always tell your sister to remain optimistic! You guys are in my prayers!

    PS! i also wanted to share a cute picture we recommend to alot of parents… we always try get a picture of the baby’s hand on top of the dad (or mom’s) hand, and right next to both wedding bands. or something along those lines…(depends how strict the hospital is with rings though) im sure you have alot of cute picture ideas to play with anyways =) but thats one of favorites to recommend!

    Wow – congratulations, you guys! He is precious. I hope things are continuing to go well. I will keep JD’s sister and family in my prayers. They have a long road ahead of them. But while it is challenging, it is also an amazing bonding experience. And it won’t be long until the NICU seems like a distant memory.

    Wonderful images, Jas. They will be so very special to them always. Keep me updated. God bless!
