say hello to our baby, elliott brian.

 he is here!  our baby boy is here!  our little elliott brian arrived 2 weeks early on saturday march 15th at 10:32 pm.  he weighed 7 pounds 5 ounces and is the sweetest little thing.  we are so surprised by his full head of dark hair!  it is so cute.  my dad took these photos on his first day of life and i can't get enough.  the last one is my very favorite.  

i have so much to say about this little dream baby but i am still getting used to little sleep and lots of feedings.  when i get a spare moment i usually sleep or eat, so blogging has become a luxury.  i am soaking up every moment cuddling my little newborn.  every once and a while i get this sense of panic that he is growing up too fast!  the last 11 days have flown by, yet have been the longest days of my life.  haha crazy how that works.

when my dad first showed me these photos he played a song called welcome to the world by nicolette larson and it perfectly describes how i feel about elliott and his birth.  i get teary every time i hear this song.  he is such a precious little gift, i am so grateful he is ours.

It's the same old story
Yes it's nothing new,
Just a gift from heaven
Just a dream come true.
In a flash of glory,
In a ray of light,
Welcome to the world,
That will hold you tight.


And i always knew,
That you were always there.
And i always want to be,
The one to care,
If your heart is broken,
If your feeling blue.
Welcome to the world,
That is here for you.


Welcome to the world,
That is shiny and new.
Welcome to a lifetime,
Of dreams come true.
Welcome to the joy,
Of living each day.
Love is all around you,
And here to stay.


I am here beside you,
I am here to stay.
I will keep you safe,
and never go away.
As you look around you,
Or your fast asleep.
All i have to give you,
is yours to keep


Welcome to the world,
That is shiny and new.
Welcome to a lifetime,
Of dreams come true.
Welcome to the joy,
Of living each day.
Love is all around you,
And here to stay.

i feel so lucky to be this baby's mama.  the amount of love you instantly feel is just insane.  isaac and i are over the moon.  be back soon {i hope} to share the story of his birth, his name, and more about his sweet little spirit.

It really is the craziest thing how obsessed you become over your little one immediately. I'm still not over it and don't think I ever will be. It just gets better and better. He really is so adorable. Congrats!
