Hello World

It has been an amazing whirlwind weekend.  Friday and Saturday were great, but Sunday stole the show!

I woke up at 6:00am to a phone call from my mom saying that my sister-in-law, Krista, was in labor... My first reaction,  "WHAT?!?!?! She isn't due till May 7th!?!?!" CRAZY. Soooooo... I got ready, ran to church, talked with Ben, high fived the Roark clan, & then hopped in my car and headed to Tennessee to see Nephew #2 be born.

BUT... not only is Nephew #2 an early bird, he's also a fast little guy. Evidently it only took 3 good pushes to pop him out! Before I even reached the interstate, the little guy had made his debut into the world.

Seriously y'all, I booked it to TN. I don't think a trip has ever gone SO quickly! It was SOOOOOO good to be able to be with family during such a special time. The little man weighed 5 lb.s 11 oz. and we still don't have his height quite yet. They had to put him in the NICU for some minor breathing complications so we had to scrub in to see him. He was so sweet with his little tubes and heart monitor - broke my heart! We were all so very thankful for a healthy baby boy!!!  Here are a few photos of the day, sorry some of them have poor lighting and for the multitudes of photos (i'm a proud aunt... don't judge me). Needless to say, they keep the lighting dim in the NICU and a flash is obviously not appropriate. :) Enjoy!

Sweet little guy being held by his mamma for the first time!

Shows how big lil' guy is in comparison to Daddy's hand.

Seriously... how cute is he???

And isn't Nephew #1 the world's cutest big brother????

Ok I'll stop being THAT aunt now... but for real... I love my nephews!

Much love - Crazy Aunt B
