The night before Christmas was James' last night in our house. (James is pictured here hanging in Magdalena's stocking.) He had such great reports to give Santa that Magdalena even got a present early! A gigantic, red balloon! Because Magdalena gets to give James his name we wanted something that would be especially for her but would also make sense to our future kids. James is named after the doctor who endured the tears we shed during each check-up visit, questions, and he honored the many requests that we had concerning Magdalena's special birth. He helped us with many of the decisions that we had to make, and we were blessed to have a doctor to deliver Magdalena that we trusted. I hope to one day let our special doctor know that our elf is named after him! I am sure he would get a few chuckles out of that!
