Introducing...


Coleman Somers Higbee
9/10/2008 @ 4:47 pm
6 lbs. 4 oz. and 18 inches

Just a few minutes old.

One very happy mother... he's so sweet and tiny! I'm so grateful that he's here!

The whole family! I can't believe we have 4 children (and a bonus kid)... CRAZY!

About 30 minutes old. He is so alert and aware.

A couple hours old. We are madly in love with the little guy.

Everything went great! We arrived at the hospital about 10 am but didn't start the induction until around noon. The delivery went smoothly and I feel great (well, as great as can be expected). All the kids were there and they were so cute. Max is just thrilled to have a brother, Abby kept patting my hand and telling me how brave I was and that she was so proud of me, and Afton was extremely protective... she didn't want anyone to hold him but her and she would get very upset when he cried. I think she is going to be a great big sister. We are grateful to Cassidy for being with Afton all day and getting the kids at school and bringing them to the hospital just in time. It was a great day and we are so grateful for our beautiful baby boy. We feel extremely blessed to have this little guy join our family.

Oh my gosh, Katie! You look great! I looked terrible after having Dev. Your hair was good, make up, earrings...wow! How long were you in labor? He is so cute-but little. I am not surprised. You were so little. I am glad everyone is happy and healthy. Congratulations! Heather

Look at you! First of all, great job...you did it! (Having the baby, too, of course, but I am talking about your in-hospital post! Heehee.) He is so cute and wow, your family is so big and cute! I also can't believe your little photo shoot in the garage, did Chris take them? Good work. What a dynamo family. All so talented. Can't wait to meet your little guy in person. Hope you had a great shower, I was sorry I couldn't be there! Love you all. Congrats!

Hey Chris and Katie, congratulations!! Thanks for sending the text and keeping us in the loop. (I must admit that I'm a little jealous that you've had your baby and I still haven't had mine. But that's going to end soon. We hope! LOL) Glad to know things went smoothly for you. Best wishes to your sweet family! ~Rebecca Overson

Thank you all for the sweet notes. We are home and feeling great and super happy to have him here. He really is the sweetest little guy ever! I'll try to post more pictures in the next day or so... maybe a little slideshow of his first few days. We love you all, thanks for the support!
