We had a baby yesterday.
His name is Caleb Lamont Mayes and he is perfection wrapped up in a polka-dot blanket under a thick head of dark hair.
He arrived at 8:39 a.m., weighing in at 8 pounds, 7 ounces and stretching to 21.5 inches.
He is healthy and strong and my heart was immediately filled with the goodness of knowing my baby is safe.
We couldn't hold him right away but he instantly stopped crying when Joe spoke to him.
He knows his daddy and his daddy loves his son.
And then there's this little girl.
She is beyond thrilled to finally see and touch and hold her baby brother.
This is my family. This is my heart.
We have a son named Caleb and we are completely smitten.
"You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us."
