Baby S!

I told you we'd have a baby before Christmas! I'm such a tease, I know.

Look at this guy - we could not be more thrilled! He is a great eater, burps with no trouble, and is a typical baby - up all night. Yikes!

Our sweet baby's birthmom was amazing. She invited me into the delivery room, and I actually got to see Baby S being born. We got to spend a lot of time with her in the hospital and she just loved the baby to pieces while he was in her care. We had an entrustment ceremony yesterday where she lovingly placed him into our arms. We will see her in a few weeks so she can see how much her baby has grown.

So, here are a few pics highlighting the first few days of his life! He was born early in the morning on Thursday and came home to our house and our wigged-out kitties on Saturday. I can hear him squeaking right now, so I'd better hurry off.

We love him so much already. This happened so fast and we can't believe he's ours - mine, DHs, birthmoms, birthdads, and our families'.

If he were any cuter, I'd drive down there and nibble his cheeks myself.

I'm so unbelievably thrilled for all of you. Can't wait to hear stories of how zombied out you are ... the poopy tales ... all of it. Just glorious!

We have a new kitten. While normally you would be the first person I'd write to tell ... I'm thinking you'd be humoring me with a little nod, while thinking, "Kitten, schmitten ... I've got a BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" ha!

Having just left after a wonderful two days with Erk, Amy and Randy, I can testify (unbiased, of course) that Erik is absolutely adorable! And Amy and Randy are wonderful parents----I treasured every moment I had to watch this joyous family.
