Hospital & Home

We had several visitors come see us at the hospital after Holden was born, somehow I only ended up taking pictures of Harper (of course!) and the Browns...thanks to all who came to see us! It was a quiet & special time to bond with our new baby before heading home, I must say, the nursing staff at Methodist Women's Hospital was absolutely amazing, they were all so very kind and helpful...
Harper is her "big sister" tee!

We have a busy few days ahead of us, Grandpa & meme are coming over with dinner tonight (yea!), Auntie Jill & Uncle Tim are in town for Cousin Jaxson's baptism on Sunday and then Auntie Pollyanna arrives in Omaha on Monday for a nice, long summer visit (Yea! again!)

More to come soon, off to hold Holden!

Holden Michael Kawa

Holden Michael Kawa arrived on Wednesday, June 15, 2011 at 4:54 pm.
Weighing 8 lbs, 5 oz and 20 1/2 inches long.
He is a beautiful & healthy boy!
We are so blessed to welcome him to the world.

Last days as an only child

Mike & I took as much one on one time with Harper leading up to the days before Holden's arrival... We had so much fun sharing quiet (and loud!) moments with our first born...

This was the picture I took right before we hopped into the car & dropped off Harper on our way to the hospital, those last moments of saying good bye to her were tough! Knowing her life would never be the same (or ours, for that matter). But still, confidant that our lives would all become better as we grew into a family of four.
