Oh my. We live such basic lives around here, don't we?
And I'm moving slow and just trying to process everything that happened yesterday and still a bit in shock. It happened so quickly! We never had a moment to wonder just how much longer this was going to take. Well, I'm sure Jessie did but the rest of us just sort of had enough time to look at each other and smile and hold each other and be happy.
So. Here are a few of the pictures that finally bounced into my in-box.
Could a woman be more beautiful? Those were taken less than three hours after that baby arrived.
Auntie May and Uncle Michael with the boy.
He studied May's face so carefully.
The adoration of the beloved.
Here's a picture I got last night.
And here's another picture from right after the birth that suddenly appeared.
Kissing. No one tells you how hard you can fall in love with your partner after you have a baby together. It's a sort of magic that somehow defines romance to me.
And here's one last picture for this morning. Jessie sent it in response to me asking how August was doing.
His daddy swaddling him like his little brother.
Love, love, love.
Happy Friday, y'all.
