Baby Nathan

We are home from the hospital with our beautiful new baby boy and enjoying every minute of it. He is such a good baby and rarely cries, he just makes a lot of little squeaking noises and is quickly gaining the nickname "Squeaker". We think he is a pretty good mix of me and Ryan. He's long and skinny (like Ryan) and has a fair amount of dark hair (like me). I know we made it pretty clear that we were hoping for a little red head but we think he is the cutest baby in the world just the way he is. Actually, while I was in labor, I kept imagining what he would look like, and I could not picture him with red hair at all that day. We feel so very blessed that the labor and delivery went exremely well and that it wasn't too long and that our baby is perfect and healthy. Maybe I will post some details about the birth story when a little time has passed. I don't want to think too much about it right now. I'm sure that's understandable!  Enjoy a few more pictures of our little man! And let us know who you think he looks like!

Hmm I can't tell who he looks like...I would say you because of his hair. I think I need to study him a little closer : )
I hope you are having a blast and can't wait to meet him!
