Hello :)

On Wednesday night we finally got to meet our new little boy, Dustyn Ray!!!!  (I texted everyone besides Liz and Gary because I didn't have your numbers in my phone... but I think I heard Frans on the phone with someone, becky maybe, and asked them to text you guys.)  He was born at 10:15, and was 8 lbs 15.6 oz.  Another big baby for us!  But the delivery was super easy, and recovery so far hasn't been bad either thank goodness.  We are both still in awe that we actually have a little boy...seems so unreal!  Actually, just having a baby right now seems unreal.  With so much going on in our lives this past year, it doesn't seem like we focused much on my pregnancy, and it just flew by.  And all of a sudden, it was time to have him, and it was like, where did the time go???!  But I guess that's not really a complaint! 
We are so thankful that God has given us another healthy baby to love, we are so lucky!  And the girls are beyond thrilled's like Christmas-time around here! 
We can't decide who he really looks like....Does anyone see a resemblance?

 Proud daddy with his Son!

Anna was so awesome and watched the kids for us while we were in the hospital :)  She brought Trina and Taryn to the hospital while the other girls were in school.  It was nice having them come without the big girls...

the girls each brought me two red roses to make a dozen. 

24 hours old here....

Waiting to get discharged from the hospital.  They can' t believe he is going to get to come home with us.  Trina asked me, "Then will we have to bring him back?"  Nope, we get to keep him!

 dressed and ready to go home!

Trina happy to have Dustyn home with us!

Love this little guy...isn't he just the cutest!!?

All the other girls got shipped out to Friends houses for the weekend...but Taryn got to spend Saturday home alone with us.  And I think it was a good thing.  She got lots of special attention right along with Dustyn.  :)  Everytime she walks by him she stops and rubs his head and says "awww....cute baby!"  I love it!  Hopefully she continues to be good with new baby taking over the 'baby' spot!

Nice to see our 33rd grandchild. If all goes as planned we will get to see him in February. And all our other AZ grandchildren. Grandma K.

Congratulations, he is beautiful! I can't help but laugh that he is barefoot when coming home. My girls have come home with plenty of clothing, snowsuit, hat, and 2 blankets :)Wow, Taryn looks like Alanys..
