Announcing the Arrival of...

Tait Edward Zimmerman, Jr.

Early, but healthy, Little Tait was born on November 6, 2008, at 3:29 pm, delivered by emergency C-section. At just 27 weeks along, he needed (and still needs!) all of the prayers he so lovingly received from all of our faithful family and friends.

Thankfully, he has been breathing on his own from the beginning, and hasn't needed a respirator, which is apparently very rare for babies born at his stage in life.
While we didn't plan or expect him quite this early, we are so thankful for our precious baby boy! We hope to be able to bring him home around the middle or end of January. Please be praying that he grows into a strong, healthy newborn over the next 2-1/2 months!
Here are a few pictures from his first few days in the wide, wide world....

Since this picture, he has shed the CPAP and the goggles!
