Okay I have to admit it's been hard to want to do a new post I just want to keep looking at the pics of my D but we have so many pics to share and thoughts so here we go....coming home, what a rush that was. When Matt and I were driving away from the hospital we looked at each other and thought "are they really letting us leave with him" we both kept expecting someone to run out of the hospital and say "oh, just kidding" you don't get to keep him. It's been amazing since the moment we walked in the door sure we haven't slept much and we find ourselves in tears just starring at him while he sleeps just realizing how perfect he is.

This morning was especially perfect as I woke up on my 28th birthday I can't imagine a sweeter gift. For me it has been a life long dream come true and for over 8 years it's been a dream of ours to have a family. It's still just seems so surreal that Dealey is here.

Hooray baby boy! The cute stuff has made it home. We are so freakin' stoked for you guys. My birthday card is coming late...sigh. I even bought it weeks ago! But, what a sweet gift indeed. I know what you mean about it being very surreal. Aron and I totally felt the same way when bringing Mags home..."she's ours!"

Happy Birthday Mommy! I bet this birthday is up there as far as most memorable. You guys deserve all this happiness and joy of parenthood.

I must agree we felt the same way bringing Baby G home. You'll never forget that moment. AHHHH!

Keep the pics of this adorable little boy coming!

Happy Birthday new Mama!! :) I think everyone feels the same when they get to bring their baby home from the hospital. :) I know that it was scary, but so amazing bringing Zoe home! After 5 weeks in the hospital and her only weighing 4 pounds, it was quite scary. :) But surreal as you put it! Congrats on such a sweet cute little baby boy! You *so* deserve it!

Happy Birthday girlie! You know my three are 6, 4, and 17 months and I still haven't lost that awe and amazement of how wonderful they are and how blessed I am to have them in my life. I am such a better person because of them. Life is crazy but it's beautiful!!! Read my latest blog entry and see what I mean. Congrates again!! Tell Matt congrates too.
