Both little ones are zonked out on the way home Monday morning.

Baby Boston has arrived!

Boston Micheal Gerardi was born on Saturday, Oct. 11th at 3:38AM. He was a healthy 7lbs 10oz, 19 1/2 inches long. It took just 40 weeks, less 3 days, to create our second miracle. He is beautiful! The labor was an incrible experience. I had a great time - yes seriously, lol. We are both tired, yet doing very well. Boston is quite a bit jaundice and is being treated at home over the next week. He looks just like a little pumpkin. The family jokes that at least he is in season. I worry, of course, but he should be an alert little guy in no time. I truely can not express the joy, fulfillment, love, and glory that comes with being a mother. I am truely blessed!

Cambry is very proud to be the "Big Sister." She is super sweet with him. She came to visit first thing Saturday morning. She was not in the room more than 2 minutes before she said "Okay, I am ready to take him home." She loves on him constantly. He is the first person she asks for in the morning and the last person she sees before bed. "Good Night Baby Boston Michael. Have sweet dreams," she says. She has learned that he can not share "Newies" (noodles) with her until he has teeth. She makes sure that everyone else is aware of this as well. She is excited to teach him all about life.

The light inside Papa Joe shines brighter when he looks at his son. He truely is a proud father - a super one at that. He is completely dedicated to his children and his family. It is such a beautiful thing. Like the comedian he is, when I say how cute the little guy is, Joe responds with "Yes, and he comes with big, deadly gas too." In case you have forgotten, the bowel smells of young children are quite incredible.

Tremendous Two!

Family Fun at the Gifford Farm on Saturday, Oct. 4th. Cambry LOVES the animals. She had the best time feeding the "Honkeys" (donkeys) grass with Papa Joe. In the top picture she had just stuck her fingers into the chicken coop to let them have a nibble. This apparently tickles. :)

Cambry is Papa's girl! They have the best time together. It is such a joy to watch them be together.
