Our New Year's Day Baby!!



Mason 
5.4 lbs 19.25 inches


NY's Superstitions: Babies born on the New Year are said to be lucky for life and the family of a New Year's baby will have good luck that year. 




Here he is! Our surprise gift on New Year's Day.
We just need one more boy to make a real, legit basketball team :)



Mason is beautiful and handsome like his brothers-- healthy and perfect!
We are very lucky, blessed and in love!!!
and tired :)



I could just stare at him for hours and hours...




-------------------

And this is a gift for him below (it's not as brutal as it looks). My mom sent me this picture... Mason's brother's made him a birthday cake today in preparation for his arrival home. They're so sweet! It's got diapers on the bottom, layered with kleenex a purple man magnet, and gobs of A&D ointment so they were able to stick the nail file "candle" to the top of the cake. Very creative!


A couple hours of light therapy for Mason and we'll be heading home sweet home.
