This was 10 years ago. Nathan Mark Moedt entered the world 8 1/2 weeks early, weighing in at only 3 lbs., 8 oz. It was a tough road for our little Nathan – 2 brain hemorrhages, blood transfusions, numerous IV’s. But, 2 months later, on day 50, he was released from the hospital and came home with us.
This was the other day. Our Nathan is now 10 years old, and a real joy in our lives. He’s just finished grade 4, and did very well. He’s a bundle of energy, constantly bouncing around. He loves Lego, especially Star Wars Lego, and can tell you exactly which pieces we own and which we don’t. Wii is definitely one of his favorite pastimes, and favorite game is Lego Star Wars. 🙂 The only reminder of his rough beginning has been some continued speech problems, but thanks to a wonderful SLP, even that is getting ironed out.
Happy birthday, Nathan – we love you!
