More Austin pics

I came home yesterday and am loving being home. I'm also so happy to have a healthy, happy new baby in our lives. Austin barely cries -- once in a while he squeaks to show us he's unhappy, but I think I've only heard him actually cry a few times. I can't imagine that will last ...

Anyway, I thought I'd post a few more pics from the hospital that better show off our new little guy.

Here I am with my kids. I feel so blessed. I seriously can't believe in less than 10 years of marriage we have this:

I will always cherish this picture. We had a nurse take a couple of the whole family, but they didn't quite work. But this one of me and my kids? Priceless.

Austin is following in his siblings' foot steps by having the most beautiful eyelashes. If they stay dark like Tyler's, then he'll get lots of compliments. Poor Tyler likes his glasses to be down a little bit so his eyelashes don't hit them. They definitely get that from Paul and not from me. Zachary's and Shayla's are also as long, but since they're blonde most people don't notice them. Anyway, it looks like Austin will follow the trend and have his own beautiful eyelashes. (Click on the image to enlarge if you need to see what I mean.)


As I was holding Austin in the hospital I guess he decided to show off how strong his neck is. Fortunately Paul grabbed the camera and caught this cute picture:


My older kids have been so concerned about Austin's cracked and dry hands. They can't understand why they look that way. Hopefully they'll look better soon.


Here's Austin with his Backyardigans Austin I mentioned before. It's a little bigger than a normal Beanie Baby, but look how huge it looks next to my little cutie:


And this is for Grandma -- remember how small Kylen was when you left? Well, just look at him now next to his new cousin ...

He is so cute. He has chubby cheeks just like a little girl I know. Now when Rebecca has her baby, yours will look big to you.

I could hardly wait to get back to Enumclaw where THAT computer would pick up the pictures. He is adorable. Sure wish I could have been in on the streaming live with the web cam though.
He reminds me of pictures of Jana when she was just born. And those eyelashes--yes Paul had plenty of those and more to share I guess!
