Newborn Pictures!

Not only were we lucky enough to have my sweet SIL and BIL make the long trip to Baton Rouge to meet their newest nephew, but we also got a newborn photo shoot out of it. My SIL just happens to be a very talented photographer and we were thrilled that she was able to come and capture Lucas so we can always remember when he was this small.

She posted some of her favorites on her blog, which you can see here. If you enjoy them as much as we do, feel free to comment and let her know! (and keep them in mind for any of your photography needs, particularly if you're in the DFW area!)

Pumpkin is here!

We welcomed our little pumpkin, Lucas Patrick, on October 26, 2011 at 8:22 am. While we were in Labor and Delivery, Z and I were trying to finalize our choice for a boy's name. We were both so certain that the baby would be a girl that we actually just stopped mid-discussion and agreed it was a moot point. Needless to say, we were very surprised when the doctor announced that he was a boy!

My L&D experience was a very positive one this time around (I'll try to get around to posting a full birth story soon) that involved me progressing from 4 to 9 centimeters in about 45 minutes (I really love the person who invented epidurals). It all ended with our 8 lb 12.8 oz, 21.5 " son. Recovery is going well and all in all we just feel extremely blessed.

And now, pictures!
