hey, we're home! we actually got home yesterday, but this is the first chance i've had to sit down and blog a teensy bit, though josh and i went through all of your comments this morning...made us feel like super stars with so many congratulations! anyhow, i will share the whole birthing story another time. for now, here is a picture of our suave looking son, fresh from a sponge bath with daddy-combed hair. we are so proud of him & can't get enough of just gazing at him. yes, there is a lot to get used to, but we're up for the challenge and loving it. thanks for all of your words of encouragement. like i said, will blog more soon.
