The New Guy

Well, folks...he's here. The littlest dude has arrived. Noah Grey Laney. 6 lb 12 oz, 19" long at 7:08 on January 9th. Three days late, just like his big brother. Laurel says I shouldn't put this picture of her in here, but I think it's pretty good. What do you think? Let's get a little web poll going here. I want to hear the comments. Isn't she a happy, pretty new mommy? I thought so. So we got home this morning. Isaac and I had to be at the hospital at about 6:30 this morning, you know, 48 hours post birth & they give you the boot. They didn't really give us the boot until about 8:30, though, so I could have slept in. Blast! If only I had known. Oh well. Everybody's home and happy. I've even changed two mustard yellow diapers already today.
Isn't this one great?! I think the original little dude is gonna make a good big brother after all. We weren't sure how he was going to take it, but we talked it up so much, I guess he believed some of it. Isaac gets a big smile on his face when he sees him and likes to tell him "Hi brother."
Here he is right after they brought him down to the nursery--just chillin' in his crib. Very sleepy for the first little while...and I'm not just talking about him.

Well, personally, I think it's disgusting. That is all.

Congratulations on the new baby-you two will be awesome parent's of two childre, and once you two have mastered it you will have to give us tips on how to do it because the thought of two makes me a little bit frightened!
He is adorable and the picture of Isaac with Noah is cute-not to mention that I am jealous you named him Noah, Cody is against the name because he knew a Noah who ruined the name for him...maybe I can still persuade him!
