Welcome, baby boy!

Our baby boy finally arrived at 1:24 pm Saturday, May 26th (4 days overdue). He weighs 8 lbs. and is 21 inches long. I asked the doctor how big he thought the baby would be (I have been measuring small) and his guess was high 6 lbs. or low 7's. We were all surprised to hear he was 8 lbs even!

Proud daddy!

When the baby's head came out the doctor asked us how sure we were it was a boy because he had lots of brown hair! Justin finally got the boy a daddy always wants!

My mom watched the girls for us and they came over later that night to visit the new baby. They were so cute. They wanted to kiss him and hold him. Molly kept saying how good the baby smelled. She was also very concerned about the umbilical cord. Right now it is clamped off and we are waiting for it to fall off. She is wondering what exactly it is doing there!

First family picture

Happy parents!

Our little angel. He has been such a good baby so far! We have no complaints!

We can tell the girls are going to be great older sisters! They already tell me they are going to help out by bringing me diapers and wipes. It is so fun to finally have him here!

Name and birth story coming soon!
