Welcome Valdryk!

This delicious baby is Valdryk, and he's three days old!

If you've been reading the blog, you may remember my first post about Valdryk back in September. At that time he was a tiny little adorable peanut. Valdryk's mom and dad had a few scares in early pregnancy, but little Valdyrk fought like a warrior (his name is a Nordic name meaning "warrior") to stay with his family, and last Friday he was born. He's 7 lbs 15.4 ozs of adorable healthy baby boy!

I've been corresponding with Valdryk's mom for the last few months, and was anxiously awaiting his arrival. When I received an e-mail with his picture and birth announcement this morning, I couldn't have been more delighted.

Valdryk's daddy is serving overseas, and wasn't home for the birth of his baby boy. His mom assures me that Valdryk is the spitting image of his dad!

A gift for Valdryk is all packed up and ready to be mailed. Along with it, everyone at Marine Corps Kids sends Congratulations to the entire family! We wish Valdryk a lifetime of happiness. We wish his mom and older brothers and sisters a lot of joy. And we wish for peace and for Valdryk's dad to be able to come home soon.

Welcome, Little Warrior! We're all so glad you're here!
