Josephine Lily Beth

She's here!!!

Josephine Lily Beth arrived Sat. Dec. 5, 09 at 10:12 am. She weighed in at 9 lbs 11 oz and is 21 in. long. She has a full head of long, dark brown hair that already looks a bit wavy!

Both Josie and Patti are doing well. We're all home adjusting to no sleep during the night and lots of energy needed for playing during the day!

Thank you for your prayers throughout Patti's pregnancy and for Josie's safe arrival.

Here are probably more pictures than you could ever want to see ;)

Mommy and the boys hanging out before heading to the hospital Sat. morning (around 6:15 a.m. or so).
The following pictures were ones we missed out on with Nate because of his fast arrival. So we took advantage of things and had fun! Our L&D nurse, Ashley, said she loved us because we were laughing and joking and having such fun inbetween contractions!
