There was a baby born...

last night at 11pm. Ember finally had Norman Crispin!!! Ok, so she and Aaron decided to go against my name choice and actually named their adorable little boy Niklas David. He's 7 lbs 1 oz and 19.5 in long. I love the name and spelling!! So cool! Niklas has a TON of dark brown hair. He looks just like his dad. He makes the cutest faces and noises when he's sleeping.

Lance, Miss Thang and I went to the hospital to see them this afternoon. On the way, we ran into my OB and one of the nurses that helped us when M was born. It was like a little reunion! They couldn't believe how big M was already. The nurse told us we needed to get going on the next one so she has good job security. Too cute:)

Ember, Aaron & Niklas are doing well. Ember is tired and sore but looked happy. She's definitely a natural. They are all going home tomorrow. Niklas seems to be very laid back and likes to sleep. Hopefully that will continue so Ember can get some sleep.

Both Lance and I held Niklas. It's hard to believe that M was that little 1 year and 1 month ago. M was very interested in Niklas and wanted to touch him. She was very gentle with him under our watchful eye as she's known to "pet" pretty rigorously! After awhile, M was not too impressed when I was still holding Niklas. She was trying to climb in my lap too. I thought she might have a problem with Lance holding him since she's such a Daddy's girl but she really didn't mind that at all. M got over it and just played after that.

My foot is healing but still very sore. I'm probably doing way too much on it but how are you suppose to stay off of it and chase a crazy 1 yo?
