Baby, Oh, Baby!

So we did not go into labor, and on January 3, 2012 at 7:47 am we welcomed Simon Carl into our family from the womb to the world.

He is a big guy - can't believe he was in my belly. He weighed in at 8 lb 1 oz and was 20 inches long. Came out with a head full of dark hair. (By the way, no heartburn!!!).

We came home from the hospital last Thursday! We were eager to be home - especially to sleep in our own beds. I was eager to see how big brother would do, and Luke has been great!

So we are settling in to a new routine of sorts and enjoying our expanded family.

Here's to 2012!

Happy New Year everyone!

Our family enjoyed a very good Christmas with a happy Luke and a lot of surprises for him. He received enough toys to make my head spin.

We also enjoyed a nice service at church on Christmas celebrating our Lord's birth - complete with the Lord's supper.

The past week has been pretty uneventful - work and waiting on the baby.

And now we are in 2012 and we are still waiting for our little baby's arrival.

So many things to look forward to...
