Riley Birth

I was SO ready to meet our little guy. My body couldn't take another day of being pregnant.

He weighed 8 pounds and was 22 1/2 inches long.
There was a little bit of excitement right after the birth. I passed out for a few seconds while Ri was rushed to the nursery to make sure his breathing was ok. HeRoos was a little freaked out for a few minutes. Both of us turned out to be just fine.

Proud daddy.

One happy mama to finally meet our Ri Guy.

He wasn't too happy about making footprints.

Spa time!

We L-O-V-E this little angel!

This was the first time ZoZo and MB met their baby brother. They were pretty excited about the toys Ri Guy gave them.

Pops (Grandpa Bob) & Ri.

GG (Grandma Reta) and Ri.

Our first day home. GG and Pops stayed with Max and Zo while we were at the hospital with Riley.

Mom with her two boys. The first week that Riley was home, Max came into the room and said, "I don't like him." It took a couple weeks for him to warm up but now Max likes him and even wants to hold him.

Zoey adores him. She likes to hold him and share blankets with him. She is so natural at nurturing and instantly loved him.

I know you're feeling relief now that Riley was born, being pregnant is no picnic. I'm glad you and he are healthy. He fits in so well with your beautiful and loving family.

Awwww! Zoey is so cute with her little brother. Cute little family you and Rick have.

Cute Cute family! My first thought when I saw these pics was that "your face didn't even get fat!" (I'll take any tips for my next go around.) Good luck with the new adjustments. Again, DARLING kids.
