A winter, a silent season, and a son

Atticus Stonewall Joy joined our family at 8:24 am on Monday, February 9. He is a beautiful, healthy, ruddy baby, and I can't get enough of his newborn smell. Our home delivery was smooth and short. I wouldn't have changed a thing. We are blessed beyond measure. Meet our precious son:

We all guessed his weight. The midwife estimated between 10 lb. 4 oz. and 10 lb. 8 oz. The moment of truth: 10 lb. 6 oz. Oh, and 22'' long.

As I'm on this couple weeks of resting and "babymoon," and hours and hours of nursing our little man-child, no doubt, I'll try to get up some pictures of our holidays and the little ones posted here. I realize it's been a crazy-long blog sabatical. Thank you all for your love and warm wishes.
