Welcome Baby Noah!!!

We are proud to announce the arrival of our newest addition. Noah Riley Nelson was born on January 28th weighing 6 lbs 12 oz and 18 1/2 inches long. He looks just like Aaron and has lots of dark brown hair. The delivery couldn't have gone smoother and we feel very blessed to have a healthy baby boy and a healthy mommy as a result. The boys absolutely love him and can't wait until he's old enough to laugh at the funny things they do. I can already tell he's going to chunk up quickly because this kid is a bottomless pit. He wants to eat all of the time which leaves little time to get anything else done. I feel productive if I can get a shower in during the day. Yesterday we took Noah to the doctor to check him for Jaundice and on the way Jonas asked if he was going to get a prize. I told him I think they only give prizes to the patient and Noah is the patient this time. So, after being on his best behavior during the visit Jonas says, "I'm so excited to get my prize!!! I've been so patient haven't I mom." Just for that comment he got a prize. The doctor said that made his day. Kids are so funny. My parents have been in town from St. George helping us with the kids, housework, etc. and it's been nice having them here. Hopefully I'll get some kind of routine down soon. It's been awhile since we've experienced the whole baby stage. I totally forgot about packing a diaper bag for yesterdays appointment and realized how much thought and planning goes in when going anywhere with a baby. I did manage to remember to pump some breast milk. Of course that does no good when you forget it on the kitchen counter. Anyway...we are so happy and love all of our boys so much. I wonder if Lucas was giving Noah some last min. instructions and warnings about his new big brothers before he was born. Who knows? What a miracle these little spirits are though. You can just tell they come straight from our Heavenly Fathers arms. I asked Aaron to post a few pics soon so hopefully they will be up shortly. I want to thank all of you for your friendship, love, and support! We love you!!!
