Introducing Tate Andrew!


Monday, February 10th, 2014 we were blessed with the arrival of our sweet little boy, Tate Andrew!  He is absolute perfection!  He weighed in at a whopping 10lbs 7oz!  He was 22” long, born at 6:27 p.m. 

I will do a recap of the labor and delivery soon, I promise!

This sweet little Tate is such a sweet, content baby!  The first night home was definitely rough, no doubt about it, but that’s normal.  The second night was much better, and every night since has just been amazing!  He is only up 2 times each night, and last night he was up only 1 time!  He is letting his mommy get her beauty sleep, which is such a blessing because I didn’t get much sleep the last 2 months of my pregnancy.

Tate is loved and adored by his big brothers!  Unfortunately 3 of the 5 members of our family has a nasty cold, meaning Tate and I are the only 2 who are still healthy.  Fingers crossed neither of us get it!  It is hard to keep the boys away from Tate, and yesterday it was killing Andy to be here all day with us , his last day home before going back to work after Tate’s birth, and not get to hold and snuggle with his newest little boy.  But we don’t want to chance RSV so are keeping our distance from the sickness.

A few more pictures before I sign off.



I miss you all, btw!
