Congratulations! He is so cute! It reminds me of when Aubrey was born. Joshie and Eliza were so excited that she was home. All they wanted to do was hold her all day. Even before we got her out of the car they were right there holding their hands up to hold her. Enjoy the new baby. All your kids are so cute!
