Thanksgiving Day 2007 and Nadia Elise Lanning's First Bottle

We have so much to be thankful for this year, as we do every year. From celebrating Thanksgiving Day with Nadia Elise for the first time, to sharing a very special day with our Nashville family...the Elliott's, to a great game of dominoes, to watching Iona and Nadia as they learn more about their surroundings, to Nadia enjoying her first bottle...this Thanksgiving Day was very special in how the Lord allowed us to see his amazing grace and sovereignty over many generations. Nikki and I both celebrate in knowing that the Lord has trusted us to be stewards with Nadia as she learns about God's love for her and His sovereign plan.

Nadia is growing so much everyday. Really starting to respond to external stimuli and visually observe her surroundings. At 2.5 weeks she has already reached 8lbs 4oz and is measuring at 50% in weight, head, and height (20.25"). Nadia also experienced her first bottle today and took to it like a champ. I have to say that as a father, this was a special time for me to share with Nadia (I can only imagine to bond Nikki and Nadia share) and an extremely special moment knowing that I can play a major role in helping Nikki gain some much needed rest.

Check out Nadia Elise enjoying her first bottle.

Nadia Elise Comes Home

Watch as we bring Nadia Elise home for the first time and introduce she and Phoenix. Quite a special moment for the Lanning family household when our first dog meets our first born. We're so excited to see the two of them grow more and more together as the years go by.
