So long hospital, hello world

Stacie and I spent all week in good hands at the Texas Women Center inside St. David's Hospital.  After 13 hours of labor, the final three of which was pushing, we hunkered down in our post-delivery recovery suite.  The outside world seemed to fade away and time became irrelevant as we acquainted ourselves with Knox and the nursing staff tended to Stacie and Knox's medical needs.

Yesterday afternoon, after mom and son satisfied all discharge requirements, we stumbled out into the daylight and prepped Knox for his maiden car ride.  Fortunately we live within 1/2 of a mile from the hospital so his first journey was more like a jaunt.  The first night at home was LONG but we are loving every minute of our new way of life.  Here are a few more pictures for all of you who keep e-mailing and asking.  Thanks for all the well wishes, support and prayers!

The Evolution of the Belly

Kyle & I wanted to document the growth of our baby during my pregnancy, so he took a picture each week starting at week 12. I put them all into a video so you can see how our little guy has grown over the weeks. We're now at 40 weeks and just waiting for him to arrive. If all is well, our doctor will let us go to 42 weeks so it may be awhile yet, but no matter what we'll meet him sometime in the next two weeks!
