Today, we celebrated Nicholas’ 1st Halloween by “dressing” up as a pumpkin (since he is unable to wear clothes yet, a pumpkin hat was all the costume we could adorn), spending the afternoon bundled up in my arms and being doted on for his pumpkin cuteness by the nurses Norma, Catherine, and respiratory therapists Kim and Sarah. He had a good day with lots of sleep, little crying, and a solid weight gain – he is now 2 pounds 10 ounces.
Nicholas’ nurses also made his 1st Halloween craft with him – ghost feet. I’ve included a few photos of Nicholas and hist “art project” below. For some of you this may be the 1st photos of Nicholas you have seen – enjoy! (I’ve also included a photo of Nicholas in one of the hats his great-great Aunt “Ruby” crocheted for him. In our family we know that love is an action verb and we are so thankful she made Nicholas several hats and his 1st teddy bear!)

Thank you so much for allowing us to share in your family’s journey. Nicholas is truly a fighter, and very lucky to have such amazing parents. Please know we are sending prayers and positive vibes down south! Keep fighting, little man. Love and hugs to you all! Love, The Welters 🙂
And what a TREAT to know he is making progress! So adorable, what with the little “wave” and all! Blow him a kiss for us. Much love to you! Kay and Charlie
