And Now, Five

I have a huge amount I want to write about Archer's birth...all the ways it was better/easier than my previous two (spoiler: almost every single way) and the ways in which it's been a little harder. How I'm feeeeeling (generally good) and thoughts I have about, well, everything.

But for now, just some photos in the form of a virtual birth announcement. We had these taken at the hospital...I was skeptical to say the least but I love them wholeheartedly and I'm so glad we did it.

I'm home now, adjusting to a new reality (though not really because my parents are here helping) and navigating these first few days of getting to know a new person and reconciling the fact that the world keeps turning and life goes on despite the hugeness of the change that occurred within our family.

Welcome, my new son, we are SO glad you are here.

Ohhhhh, Jaida! That made me teary! Boy, hospital pics sure have come a LONG way! I had Kevin's taken in the hospital when he was born and they were awful - never did it again with any of my others. Anyway, gorgeous pictures, gorgeous baby boy. That little pucker of his! And the pics of Pacey holding him with Brighton . . . melt my heart. Congratulations, mama - what a lovely, lovely bunch you have there.

Congratulations!!! He is so cute. Hope you all are settling in well at home. I imagine your Mom is in heaven holding him and having Grandma time too. Can't wait to hear stories about Pacey and Brighton getting to know their little brother.
