… is here!!  He was born last Monday (May 21st) in the afternoon and weighed 7 lbs 8 oz.

{There is no better feeling on this Earth than the moment when you first hold your baby}
…And here he is all cleaned up and in his nightie:

His name is Luke David & we are so in love with him.

 {Here he is with his Daddy- David.  We’ve barely put him down all week.}

Anyway, I just wanted to share our news with you & hope you’re having a great week!  I’m not sure when I’ll be back in –  I’m really trying to devote all of my attention to the family right now- but when I am I’ve got lots to share on what we’ve been doing around here. 🙂

And a note on the exhaustion/ coping level-  I have to say that with my husband home for 1 more week, we’re doing pretty well.  Life with 3 boys is DEFINITELY an adjustment but so far, so good.  Right now, we’re tag-teaming & it’s really manageable but I’m a little nervous about when real life & work picks up & we’re not only focusing on the family & life at home.  I’m trying not to think about it right now & to just recup & relax…  On that note, I’m also sooooo excited to get to work out again.  I gained 60 (!) pounds so I’m ready to RUNNNNN… 🙂  (I gained 60 with each of my other pregnancies too =  FUN.  not.)

ok, I’m off.  Have missed you all!!

xoxo, Lauren
