just hatched!


Graham Sebastian
April 9, 2009
1:58 p.m.
7 lbs...on the dot!
20 3/4 inches

Look who arrived directly from heaven and just in time for Easter!? Our little love bundle came just hours after I wrote this, and had completely resigned myself to the idea that he might never come. Funny how the old watched pot theory is so completely true. Am wishing I had gone to bed a few hours earlier that night...Because another good night's sleep is probably a year away. But that doesn't seem to matter anymore.

He's here now. It's so surreal.

And today we are home, safe, happy and sound, counting our Easter Blessings. So grateful for our eternal life with Christ, but particularly overwhelmed with joy about this new little creation that has forever changed us...For only the best. Seriously, words escape me.

We were amazingly blessed with a super smooth, uncomplicated, {unmedicated!!!} labor + birth. Graham has a perfect bill of health and is already changing and growing! We can't stop staring, and snuggling, and kissing, and adoring. Jeff has been nothing but non-stop supportive. I never realized how much we would grow together throughout this experience. We are adjusting well and just cherishing every single moment of our little life of three. Seriously, just when you think you know love...
