He's Here...

... and we are lost in wonder.

I was not prepared for the overwhelming flood of joy that fills my heart when I look at him.

Our son . . . 
I could hardly understand the words when Daniel whispered "it's a boy!" in my ear.

 He is perfect in every way. My boy. My handsome lil guy.
 I want to drink in each moment with him. 
I wish I could freeze time.

He is tall, and has long, long feet! His head is covered with a perfect blanket of black fuzz. 
He looks like his daddy.

To see my husband as a father... no words can express that emotion. 
I am overwhelmed with the love I have for each of them. My boys.

He nurses like a champ, and sleeps so well. We are thankful. 

I can hardly believe he is four days old already, and time will just keep on passing. 
I am savoring every moment, because each moment cannot be replaced.

"My heart is overwhelmed with a good theme." - Psalm 45:1

as time permits, more pictures, a birth story and the first moments to come.


  1. He's perfect. I love him, and can't wait to meet him!!! :D

    Oh, and I can't wait to see you again, too ;P <3

  2. O my goodness. That first picture. He's beautiful, Ashlee and Daniel. :)

  3. Oh he's precious and I love your attitude!

  4. He is just darling and I am so happy for you both! And I'm with you on the Daddy thing, too! I love you to the moon and back already, baby Ralphie!
