As you may already know, Baby Houston has made his arrival into this world. It was a glorious day (Monday, the 18th) that will be remembered forever! He's a beautiful baby and his parents are very proud of him.

Dave and I had been at the hospital the night he was born, but the babies hadn't seen him yet, so we took them on Tuesday night (Houston was still less than 24 hours old). Wes touched Houston and then retreated to eat french fries with Matt. It was like he said, "Ok, cool. Call me when he's up and walking and we'll play."

Josie, however, wanted to hold, touch, and kiss Houston the ENTIRE time we were there. She actually did a really good job of holding him by herself. The problem was that she wanted to move him from her shoulder back down to her arm, back up to her shoulder. But he's a really good baby, and didn't really mind all the shuffling.

Both baby and momma are doing really well. They came home from the hospital yesterday afternoon and are now getting settled into their house. We plan to go see them on Friday to take them a freezer (packed full of food).
