Presenting Joe Cypress!

I know, I know, this is WAY overdue and we SO appreciate all of your patience. It turns out this whole having an infant thing can really wipe a person out:)

I have a hungry baby who needs some TLC (and a boob) at the moment, so this will be brief. Fear not, I will send an extensive overview of the events leading up to the arrival of our little Joe Cypress "soon," which is a relative term that in this instance means as soon as I've found a moment between feedings (Caleb's), diaper changes (Caleb's), and naps (mine).

In the meantime, here are a few pictures of our gorgeous little man (whose real name is Caleb, by the way:) Thank you for the emails, phone calls and prayers. We are all doing well (due in large part to my mom being here with us) and are so grateful for this little miracle that has entered our lives.

Hello, world!

Congrats Jenny! He is super cute. I am glad that your mom is there to help you out. Remember to sleep whenever Joe, um I mean Caleb sleeps.

Joe Cypress is already a pretty funny boy! And smiles in his sleep too.

What? No time for blogging? But babies don't really do anything all day ;-) Isn't it amazing how much time all that nursing, changing, rocking, burping , etc,. takes????!!!!

Congratulations - I'm thrilled for both of you :) And so happy everyone is happy and healthy!!!
He is beautiful!

Jenny, He's beautiful in a very handsome sort of way!!!! What a doll and lots of hair. I'm sure glad your mom is there to help. Please tell her hi for us and we loved her Christmas card.

Jenny...how exciting! I have been waiting for this post, and even had the thought that you were WAY over due and started to feel sad for you! Glad to find out that you have had him and are home.

btw...if I have a boy next, I hope he comes out as handsome as Caleb. What a perfect looking baby boy! Can't wait to hear the rest of the story:)
