welcome

Well, almost a week later, I introduce to you.....

our sweet Asher Joseph. Born on Saturday, July 30 at 2:41 PM (after almost 24 hours of inducing him to come!). He weighed 8 pounds and 3 ounces and he was 21 inches long.
He is absolutely adorable and I am not afraid to say it.

He has THE proudest brothers and sisters, ever.

I love him a whole lot.

I hope to post again soon (especially about his name since I know Sarah, Princess of quite A Lot, is laughing right now!) but I'm sure you'll understand if I take some time off to kiss him endlessly. I am also having some camera issues, boohoo, that I hope to get resolved soon.

Thanks for all your kind wishes and thoughts lately :) they are much appreciated.

MIss you so much! I seriously tried to find care for the boys so that I could come back and squeeze that sweet boy but it's not going to work right now.
I'm so happy he's here, finally. Enjoy your time with him.

OH! Precious! Congrats! He is so cute! Love the name, of course. The other Asher Joseph will be so proud to know he shares a name with such a cutie! I've been wondering about you and am so glad you finally have him to snuggle and cuddle. It makes me want another baby...kinda, lol. Enjoy your time with him...can't wait to read your posts again.

P.S. don't you feel like a supermodel? I remember feeling so skinny right after I gave birth. I wasn't, of course, but it felt good to lose the load!

I am in love all over again!! I have no doubt that he is the very most sweetest baby with the very mostest handsome name :). I've got to tell you, OUR Ashers are something special for sure. Congrats to you and big tall hubby and the kiddos. Lots of hugs and a gazillion kisses. Rest up and ENJOY!
