Adding to the family: Welcome Baby Lucas

2014-09-06_0002

This post, was originally meant to be about our "Baby BBQ." However, I learned (rather quickly in fact), that babies tend to have their own timeline. So with that being said, let me introduce you to the newest love of our lives: Lucas Davey Perrotta. Born a full month early, he came into the world on August 25, at 9:03 am. He was (and is still) a peanut at just 5 lbs, 14.5 oz. But yet, he's tall at 20 inches long. I've no idea where that comes from, because it sure isn't me!

A surprise to his daddy and myself, he just couldn't wait to officially join our family. And I'll be honest, I wasn't ready. We were only 36 weeks along! The month we had left to "prepare" was suddenly gone and replaced with this beautiful little man with tiny fingers and toes. So while I may not feel totally ready for this roller coaster ride into parenthood, I'm going to hold on tight and enjoy the ride.

Welcome to the family Lucas. We are excited to learn who you'll become, and to be a part of shaping who that person will be. You are so loved by so many already, especially me.

We love you always and forever,

Mommy (Erin) & Daddy
