Welcome to the world baby boy

Well this is a terribly belated post but I hope you understand.

He found his thumb!

Micah Joseph Hawthorne joined our family on March 12, 2008. He was 6 lb. 14 oz and 19.75 in. of pure bliss. Labor was, well, labor, but it wasn’t unbearable. He was born pink and skinny and perfect. And his brother and sisters can’t get enough of him. But neither can we.

 Thanks for all your prayers and support during my pregnancy. It’s nice to have my body back to myself (except for the brestfeeding!). I can take a deep breath and rest peacefully again. Whew!

He is quiet and peaceful and sticks to a schedule pretty well. We are settling into a routine that works for us, and just about the time I get used to that he’ll hit a growth spurt and everything will change. But isn’t that what life’s all about? Babies are the very best kind of change. We are truly blessed. I hope to post more pics soon.
