Welcome to the world

Yesterday was one of the best days of my life. I was able to experience something for the first time and I will never forget it. Our nephew was born at 2:27 pm weighing in at 7 lbs 8 oz and is 19 inches long. He is so perfect and I already love him to pieces. Being there when he took his first breath was absolutely incredible and I feel so blessed to have been able to witness his birth. Thank you Rachel and Spencer for giving me this opportunity. I love you both and your new baby boy!


He is healthy, beautiful, and perfect.

The proud daddy.

The happy sisters, mommy, and grammy.

Seriously Rach, thank you for letting me be part of your birthing experience. I feel so much more comfortable going through labor myself after watching you handle it all so well. You made everything look so easy. You are superwoman!

Yeah for Rach! I loved having babies! i know most women don't but I did! I am so glad you had that experience Court! I think it is really important for girls to see a positive birthing experience so they know it is possible. Congrats to Spencer (and Josh!) for the first boy!

Jason and Tawni said...

Courtney - My name is Tawni, I am a friend of Josh's from High School. I just saw your blog address on Facebook and thought I would take a peek. I have to say how cute you are and how lucky Josh is to have you as his wife. Seriously, I don't think I have ever seen a more darling couple. I have a blog too, but it's private. I'm going to add your link to mine so email me and I will reply back with an invitation for you to have access.

Talk to you soon! (tell Josh I said hi!)

Thanks,
Tawni

Court, it was so cool having you there. I think everybody was energized by your enthusiasm! I can't wait until it's your turn. You will be the best mom ever. I really am glad you got to experience that with us! You and baby will have a special bond forever.
