4 weeks tomorrow

Can’t believe that it’s already been 4 weeks since Sophie came into this world. Actually my sleepy eyes are telling me it’s been more like 12.

We have not been very faithful to post lately, partly because we have had sickness run rampant in our house. A week and a half ago both Thad and Gwen came down with pretty bad fevers. It took them each about 3 days to get over that. After that came the summer colds. Both of them got that and now mommy, daddy, and Sophie are suffering through a turn. Not been fun with a 3 week old.

Sarah took some good shots of the kids today, so I thought I would carve out a few moments to get those posted.

She’s here!

Well, we made it. Right now as I type mom and baby are sleeping. Introductions are in order. Sophia Poppy DeYoung was born on 5/12/09 at 4:14am. She weighs 8lbs and is 19 3/4in long. Sarah went through 23hrs of labor with Sophia and is “superwoman” in my book. This is the photo that we have so far, more will come.
