This is the same hat that I (ashleigh) wore at the hospital 31 years ago when I was born!

People started showing up to meet Creed as were were being wheeled into our room from recovery. We are so grateful for family and friends who love us and are excited about Creed being here. So, we welcomed everyone who came in the door - and tried to get pictures of everyone although we know we missed some.

The Callaways were there first walking into the room with us. I LOVE that Kagan was so excited to meet Creed that he wore one of his ties! Kagan will be a great big cousin for both of our boys to learn from ;) My sister Emily, Rob and Jane came in right behind them. Emily was supposed to be in the delivery room taking pictures but everything happened so fast that she made it after all the initial excitement was over. Either way we're glad the Lourceys came over.

The Devines are the reason taht we're in NC at all and have the family we have. So, it's only fitting that they were among the first to be in the room celebrating with us!

Cadence and Caleb Shaun didn't come until the next day, Wednesday. By the time we were in our room on Tuesday evening, it was past dinner time and heading quickly to bedtime so we thought it was better to wait until the next morning to have them meet their new brother. Cadence was in love at first sight and held her brother for so long just like a great big sister should.

Caleb Shaun was mostly excited to see his "da da" but has gotten more interested in Creed since we've been home.

My parents drove all night to be here first thing Wednesday morning. They slept for a few hours at our house and then came up to the hospital to meet their newest grandchild. I think they liked him pretty good ;)

Everyone hanging out

The Kales kept Caleb Shaun while we were at the hospital, and after we got home, we're glad to keep them in babies to hold = although this might be the last one for a while!

This post just makes me smile, smile, smile! How cute that Kagan wore his tie because he was so excited. He's such a fun kid. And I'm so glad you took pictures of Creed's fan club and everyone who was so looking forward to celebrating with you. He is a much loved, much wanted, much prayed for little boy.
