Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to over the last five days…

Em’s last day as an only child. I snapped a quick photo as I was dropping her off at Chris’s house. So grateful for the friends who helped out during this time. Linds, Britt, Chris and Holly – love ya! Mike and I headed to the hospital to see if an OB thought we should be induced because the ultrasound suggested he was a big boy at one day past due. Doc said he didn’t think it was necessary so we headed home 3 hours later. I was happy to be home with Em but it didn’t last long. We were back at 6 a.m.
Lex Langdon Ford Holownych came into our world and our hearts on January 23rd at 4:55 p.m.

We stayed one restless night in the hospital before heading home to be with Em.

Their love was instant. Though change has not been a walk in the park, the love seems to get us through.

Our first posed shot… I’m sure there will be more. We couldn’t be happier. I’m enjoying some time off and have my hands full of baby, little girl, puppy and the hand of my hubby (thank goodness). I am blissfully unaware of the outside world though I have read everyone’s wonderful words and want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.
