week one

wow. has it been a week? wow. what a week it's been! i am formulating the birth story in my mind, but until i have that finished i thought i'd share a few images of the week we've had.
after a VERY long nine months, the moment finally came and we saw our son's face for the first time.
totally worth it.
so deeply thankful my mom was here to share in the joy and all the "firsts". she has done everything. and i mean EVERYTHING for me for the past two weeks and i truly cannot imagine surviving without her.
our three sons.
so far we love being a family of five.
the boys were so very excited to finally meet their baby brother. they and their classmates made birthday cards for judah and got lots of special treatment at school that day before they came.
my sisters, niece and nephew, and my dad traveled all the way here just to be here for judah's first few days. it was so wonderful to share this special time with them.

we have been incredibly blessed by so many people with gifts and judah is going to be the best dressed baby of 2011. here's a little fashion show...
