At Home With the New Brother

Meet David Vincent
Born at 2:30 am on June 10, 2011
8 lbs 15 0z
20 3/4 inches

He's perfect.

We're home.
With the newest brother, baby Davy.
We love him so, so, so very much already.
I know I should go lay down but I couldn't help looking at the 100s of pictures of his birth and first days with us and then posting just a few.
And I know I'll be back real soon to tell you all about it because there are some great stories.
(like when I was hosing barf off the back patio, in labor and in total denial that it was all going to happen really soon)
And also because I don't want to forget a moment of the past 3 days that have been utter bliss.
I feel like Mary and want to store up all these things in my heart.
There is nothing in the world quite as wonderful as a newborn baby.
But right now, I think I'll take a nap with my tiny (I finally got an 8 pounder!) baby boy.
Don't you just love his hair?

And thank you for all the well wishes, prayers and support.  
It all went so great.
Love from,
