I can't believe it's been almost a month since I've posted on here!!! So much has happened!

Of course, the main event in that time was my little boy's birth - finally!

I will share the story of his birth soon, but until then, the basics:

Isaiah Michael was born April 19, 2011 at 7:49 pm - 8 pounds 10 ounces, 21.5" long, and healthy as can be, praise the Lord!

We are so blessed by him - he is beautiful and strong and healthy and an absolute joy!

He only cries when there's a reason for it, so we've probably been able to get more sleep than most parents of newborns (well, this week, at least - the first week, not so much)...though we do obviously have lots of feedings at night that keep Mom up :)

He is starting to open his eyes more and more everyday, and they are this beautiful, deep blue - very much like his Dad's, and I LOVE that!

At his 1-week check-up, he had already surpassed his birthweight, so breastfeeding is apparently going well!

We just love, love, love our little miracle and are SO grateful for a healthy, strong baby.

Probably within the next several weeks, I'll be creating a new blog with updates on Isaiah so that all of our long-distance friends and family can keep up on his adventures - when it's up and running, I'll pass that info along here, as well.

More to come...

    This is just wonderful news - and I am so excited and happy about your little boy! I'm glad everything is going well, and I know you are loving that little guy like crazy.

    I've had my hands full (and you have too!) but I have been thinking and praying for you and your little one so often the last several weeks! I am looking forward to reading his birth story and more updates as the weeks go by.

    Isaiah Michael - love that name! Beautiful and strong.

    Sending you lots of hugs and wishing you well on the journey ahead!

    How blessed are we??? Our little boys here with us... so amazing.
