Hi ladies. I think I know most everyone here but thought I would make a formal introduction. I'm Norina, 32, I had my little guy on April 23, 2008. We went through so much to get him; 4 losses, 2 surgeries, 3 d and c's, infertility, a failed IUI, 3 failed months of injectable meds, and my husband also had some medical issues (his fertlity miraculously returned 5 years after chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant). We feel sooo blessed, I know you all know this feeling well. Zechariah is truely the light of our lives. We are finally a family. Here are some pics. I look forward to chatting more with you all.

1 week old (he was a little jaundice):




A little over 2 weeks here:


5 weeks:




he started smiling at 5 weeks but I didn't catch it on camera till week 6


And here he is at 7 weeks all ready for the Laker game (too bad they lost!)


He's 9 weeks now but that's all I have uploaded at the moment. Like that's not enough right? LOL! Hope you enjoyed!

Love, Norina

Well good grief, you sure didn't leave the pics up very long! I didn't get to see them.

Glad you're over here, though, and it sounds like you're loving being a mommy.
