And I am absolutely in love.
This is the baby that we’ve been waiting on since before I threw his mom a baby shower last month. And he finally arrived this morning!
It was a long night, when her water broke around 7 pm on Thursday night. Staying up all night doesn’t make for the best photos, but I think it was worth staying up to get them!
He was gorgeous. Beautiful. Great eater and great crier.
Dad can hold a baby and work his iPhone at the same time – he’s gonna be great at multitasking.
He’ll be a shortstop for the Redbirds in no time!
Like I said, he has some great lungs on him!
I have always been jealous of my friends who have a niece or nephew to dote upon, to buy cute things for, to hug and kiss at holidays, and see them grow up. Well, I have joined the club. The minute we heard him give his first big cry, my heart swelled and I loved this kid so much I thought it might burst. I held him for a good part of the afternoon, as her friends came and went, nurses popping in and out, lunches brought and eaten. Simply, I love our little nephew so, so very much.
