Welcome to the World Baby Boy

Hey everyone I just wanted to stop by and let you all know that our little slow roasted turkey decided that he was more the jack-o-lantern type. That’s right, our little bundle of joy entered the world on 11/1/11 at 12:00 AM exactly weighing 7lbs 12 oz and measuring 19.5 inches. To say we are happy is an understatement. We are over the moon in love.

We’ve been home a couple of days now simply resting. Baby boy has been doing a lot of sleeping and eating while Ryan and I have been falling in love with him more and more each minute. This is truly an amazing feeling and we cannot wait to watch him grow.

I’ll be back in the kitchen soon and will be sharing more pictures of our little boy too. Hope you are all having a great week!
