Welcome Marshall Dean

We are excited to welcome Marshall Dean Newby into our family. He was born on Thursday, March 27th at 1222pm. He weighed 6lb 1oz and was 18 1/4 inches long. Tiny little guy but already getting filled with lots of love.

My c-section went a lot better than I was ever anticipating. Even my recovery is going better. They say with Mitch I was bruised from pushing for an hour and that is why I was so sore and my recovery was so long. I am really doing good though and just soaking in the love and joy of being a new mommy again.

Mitch is doing pretty good. He is not showing jealousy but at the same time he could really care less Marshall is here. Every so often he'll acknowledge him crying but that is about it. He gets more jealous when Larkin holds him then when I do.

I am really enjoying Larkin being home and know April 12th when he returns to work is going to be a hard day. He is so wonderful! A wonderful daddy and husband. He helps so much and really plays just as big of a roll in our boys lives as what I do. He cares so much about making them feel important and loved. It makes me love him as my husband so much more. Love you Larkin (don't know if he reads this blog.) :)

Anyway thank you for the prayers. I was excited to update you guys. I'm now getting ready to get Mitch ready for bed and then watch Idol. Go David Cook, Michael ? and David Archuletta. Those are my choices this year.
