I'm sorry about the length between posts. We've been busy here.

On Sunday afternoon labor started and by early Monday morning, we had another family member who felt like he'd always been here.

We have a baby boy now. He came in weighing 9 lbs and was 22 inches long. A little bit of dark hair, surprisingly few eyelashes, and a voracious appetite.

Hannah's beyond thrilled to have a newborn baby in the house. Ainsley spends most of her time around him kissing him on the head and saying "coo coo coo" about an inch from his face. Both girls love holding him.

Matt's been home for the last few days which has been wonderful. A few weeks ago Ainsley transitioned into a Daddy's Girl, so with him home, I get a lot of quality bonding time with the baby because she's clinging onto her daddy like a baby baboon.

Hannah seeing the baby for the first time, right when she woke up. She was sooo excited. I'd apologize for the way I look, but I'd just had a baby seven hours before. When Hannah woke up and saw me standing beside the bed holding him, she said "You had the newborn baby!!! And you're still pregnant!" So we had to explain to her that the belly doesn't go away as fast as the baby comes.

Baby with the family.

Was that "sorry for not blogging, but we've been busy..." -lol- sort of a tongue-in-cheek thing? :)
Congratulations to you and yours!!

Yeah, lol - it was pretty tongue-in-cheek. It's good to see you around. I can tell from your blogs that you've been busy. I hope you're having the same nice weather down there that we're having here.
