Newborn Bliss

Joshua William Butson

8 lbs. 11 oz.
of pure sweetness.

Thank you for all of your
thoughts and prayers.
We felt them all.

Labor and delivery went
better than we could have asked for.

We came home Thursday afternoon
and we are in baby bliss.
Josh is as sweet as can be.

Jack is getting used to being a big brother.

And we are settling in to life together.

I am so thankful that Darryl will get to
be home with us for a month.
We are loving having daddy home.

I forgot how sweet and perfect and yummy newborns are.

Thank you again
for all of your blog love.
I'll keep you posted.
