Welcome Baby Cooper!

Cooper Robert DeVries arrived on June 12, 2019 at 5:36pm, measuring 7 lb, 6 oz in weight, and 21" in length. He has blonde hair and blue eyes (so far) and we are smitten.

He's here! The little guy we've prayed for, read to, talked to, and imagined is finally here and we're over the moon. He arrived just in time for Father's Day, which felt so sweet.

We got to come home on Friday, and since, we've been recovering and figuring out the many logistics of our new life as a family of three (and we're doing life on baby Cooper's schedule :). I'll share more about his birth story soon, but in the meanwhile, we are learning his expressions, studying his face as he studies ours', and soaking in all the newborn snuggles. We are so thankful (and tired) and God is so good.

And on that note, here are a bunch of baby pictures, from when we were in the hospital... ;)

And some baby pictures since we've been home:

Brother love

Sometimes, it's still a shock to me that we have two little boys. The transition to two has been an adjustment for us, of course. Lots of hard moments and big emotions at times, but lots of sweetness too. Here are some of my favorite photos of our boys, from the last few months.

Newborn & family photos

My dear friend, Molly, of Molly Kate Photography came over to meet Finn and offered to do an impromptu newborn session the other day. As Molly took photos of Finn, she offered to get some photos of the rest of our little family too, spontaneously. I hesitated at first, since we didn't do any prep, per se for having our photos taken.

Full hands, full hearts: The early newborn phase

Hello! Our hands are a bit more full these days, as one can imagine. I've begun a post about Finn's birth story, and I plan to chip away at it a bit, here and there, as time allows, and publish that post soon. But in the meanwhile, I thought I'd write a little bit about life right now, in the haze of baby snuggles and night wakings and adjusting to being a family of four.
