Our little man is here! September 2, 2008

Family of four

Proud parents!
First bonding moments
Sticking his tongue out for the camera :)

All my helpers-- Daddy, YaYa, Cindy & DeDe

Carson Kyle Darby arrived at 10:53am on Tuesday, September 2. He weighed 7lbs. even and was 19 3/4 inches long. He has a head full of jet black hair and big, beautiful eyes! We pulled out newborn pics last night to see who he looks the most like, and actually, it's Alex! They look so much alike at birth! Everyone is doing great and we are getting adjusted to life as a family of four. I still can't believe we got one of each-- I am so excited to learn all about my son. He is such a little love and is so content! He is super alert and is already giving out smiles every now and then. Alex is starting to warm up to him too. She's been a great little helper with diaper changes and yesterday she sang him songs and read books to him while he napped. It was adorable.

We have a TON of pictures already....and someday I'll get them posted.
Thank you for your sweet thoughts and prayers. We are so blessed to have our son finally here! Come see us!
