He's here!

 Here it is...the prego picture I promised.  Had I given it any forethought I might have done my hair and put on makeup.  But seeing as the sun was going down, my husband was coming in from work, and I was 39 weeks pregnant and expecting this little baby ANY DAY!! I figured that moment was as good as any. 

I never know how to pose for these pictures.  No matter where I place my hands on my bulging belly it always feels awkward.  So why not make it look meaningfully awkward, right!?  Insert photo of weird-pose-with-hands-on-the-sides...

All my babies have either been early or arrived the day before the due date so going over a whole 3 DAYS was torture!  (I know, some go over by a couple weeks--bless your sweet patient souls...and stretching skin!)

But he did, indeed, finally come!  Sweet Baby H is the most chill baby I have had yet.  He sleeps through four older siblings running/screaming/laughing through the house.  I haven't had one do that yet.

He was born just before Thanksgiving so the two of us spend our holiday cuddled up with each other while daddy and the older kiddos spent the day with family and yummy food.  Although I love family and yummy food, I would definitely say I got the better end of the deal spending the day with this little dude.
