Two days old!


Our baby is exactly two days old!

He was born at home, Tuesday July 26th at 1 pm.
He was 8 pounds 1 ounce and 21 inches long...way bigger than a lot of folks predicted :)
We're all doing great, he is so cute and it looks like he'll have a pointy nose!
More photos from the birth and all the home birth details coming soon...
