Brand New

Photobucket


Bennett Justin Pace
Wednesday, April 13th
7 lbs 8 oz



We're getting deserved flak for not posting pictures and in some cases, informing loved friends and family, of our new, beautiful son. Son. That feels strange to even type.

I feel like we are just keeping our heads above water to make Bennett feel welcomed and secure in our home. Every minute not spent doing that is spent making sure his two sisters feel secure in our growing family. Let the juggling act begin!

He is a wonder to me; such a perfect, healthy, beautiful baby. And his arrival could not have been more ideal. Details to come :)

Congratulations! He's beautiful! Such a great picture of you two. Have to admit I'm super envious of the way you look after just giving birth. Wish I could say I looked even half as good...

What a beautiful baby. I can't wait to see him. This picture is so tender. You look amazing. I never allow a picture of me in the hospital because they fill me up with too much fluids.
