Noah is here!

Noah arrived on Monday night at 10:42pm. He weighed 7lbs and 10oz...one whole pound bigger than Taylor was! I went into labor around 5:30pm and he was here 5 hours later. We did not even realize in was in "true labor" until my neighbor came and checked me around 9:30pm. Needless to say, it was crazy after that. My midwife got here around 10:00 and Noah came 42 minutes later. It was a little hectic, but wonderful! And Taylor slept through the entire thing!

By the time my parents got here, Noah was already born. They were quite surprised to walk into our room and see us holding Noah already.

Mark helped weigh Noah.

Taylor loves her new baby brother. She is so sweet with him. She wants to hold him all the time and love on him. She is going to be such a good big sister.

We had a little bit of snow over the past few days, so today I decided to take Taylor out to enjoy it. Our neighbors and their little boy where out there with a boogie board. It might normally be used at the beach, but we had fun with it in the snow.

Benjamin (the neighbor's boy) liked to push Tay and she liked to ride. It worked out perfectly.

She really did not want to get off.

They even rode together. It was the cutest thing.

A video of Tay getting pulled. She was loving it.
