Joel has been such a laid back, calm baby so far. I gave him his first manicure as his nails were so long. He was definitely had all the marks of an overdue babe.

I am thrilled to be home with our family all together. I love seeing Leah interact with Joel. I definitely missed her while we were with Joel in the hospital. Leah and I spent some great one on one time this evening playing with play dough and sorting through baby clothes together. It will be an adjustment becoming a big sister but I’m sure she’ll do great. Welcome to our family little guy. We love you more than you’ll ever know.
