This weekend as I was perusing my desk, I found this old floppy disk with the title, "Boy Lundberg" on it. It was a disk from Hamot NICU where we were blessed with such great care when we were surprised on December 1st, 2003 with an early visitor. Eli was born 2 1/2 months premature and has spent the rest of his years catching up and exceeding far beyond our imagination. I admit, we had no idea what we were in store for. Apart from an eye muscle detaching and reattaching surgery, we moved to normalcy quickly. I am almost grateful for the situation. I believe strongly that it has made Eli the boy he is today. He is now 5 years old, 46 inches, 42 pounds of the most nurturing and loving person I know. His loving spirit is such an example to me as his father.







Words can not describe the joys of parenting. Kelly and I both know our lives are richer because of our little "Heroes".
