Baby V's Birthday

Our boy was born Friday. It was so different from the birth of our first baby.

We got to hold him for the first two hours, skin to skin. His little cheeks were chubby and he looked around, so alert.

Big brother, P, came to visit. He was fascinated.

Our first baby had to go to the NICU immediately after birth. This boy stayed in our room, a full 40 weeks old and the answer to so many prayers. My heart could not contain the joy and gratitude.

We brought him home the next day. Big brother announcing, "My turn!" He was so anxious to examine his little hands and feet and show him around the house.

We're exhausted but thrilled and looking forward to what comes next.

So is this little guy, apparently.


  1. Congratulations! Your new family of 4 is beautiful. I loved the photo of you watching him being but into his hospital bassinet. Such a beautiful moment captured.

  2. Congratulations! I'm dying to know what his name is (the joys of not being on Facebook I suppose). Blessings to everyone as you adjust to being a family of four :)

  3. I love these pictures and can't wait to meet him!! Big Brother P looks so excited, I love it :)

  4. So, so happy for y'all! Beautiful pics! Can't wait to meet him :)
