We've been a little busy this week...

Noah Eugene
was born on St. Patrick's Day at 10:10 pm

after only 2 hours at the birthing center
and being 2 1/2 weeks "early"

He weighed 8lbs, 8oz
and was 20 1/4 inches long

Cory met his new brother on Thursday evening

A more excited boy I haven't seen!

He'll make a great big brother...

although he's not sure about the crying!

We have an almost identical picture of Cory with Papa
and here is about the only picture where I think they look alike

"Noah" had a present for Cory, a giant stuffed Golden Retriever which Cory promptly named Cayenne and proceeded to have "lick" everyone just like the real Cayenne does! (my parent's dog)

We had just gotten out the baby clothes and started sorting them on Tuesday night... so I did some laundry at 4am after my water broke and I was waiting for the midwife to call me back!
It was a pretty slow day and the labor didn't actually start getting hard until about 7pm, but then it was fast and furious!
We came home at 1:30am and since I wasn't expecting this for another 2 weeks it's hard to believe he's here already!
Now for the "reality check" when Cory comes home to stay tomorrow!
