Welcome, baby!

Our darling little Reed Otto Richards, was born on March 11, 2016 at 3:10am. Weighing in at 8lbs. 10oz, 21.5".  Right on schedule, just like mommy likes it! (He was due 3.10.16)

Throughout my 10 months of pregnancy, John and I always discussed what we think it would be like when he was born. 

"What are we going to do, just like sit here and stare at him?"

Yes. Turns out that's exactly what parenthood is to new parents. Literally all I do these days is stare at this child. I can't get over how perfect he is. Of course I feel like he is gifted already, so I assume everything he does is advanced for his age because, you know, my kid is better than anyone else's. Just kidding, I know we all feel that way. 

Here are some pics of our smiley boy from the past 3 weeks: 

This is basically what my phone looks like... 

I'm obsessed with that toothless grin. 

Someday I'll write a "birth story" post so that I can remember it forever, but until then, I'm going to continue staring at this kid.
