Cullen’s First Day.

There is so much to say and so much to write, but also so much snuggling and cuddling to do.  I can’t tell you how much we all appreciate the outpouring of love and support from around the world.  We all feel very blessed and lucky.

I’ll try to write all about his arrival into the world soon, but for now I thought I’d share a few pictures of our first day as a family of three…

IMG_3071 (427x640)

Life has definitely never felt this good.  Many thanks to you all!

I was so glad everything turned out fine, sounded like a nightmare for awhile and you are so lucky you mom was with you as well as Casey, bet she is loving being a grandmother. I am so glad she was there for the main event, its always nice to have your mom around at times like these, it seems like it sometimes takes three parents to get that little one through life. It sure did for us some days.
