Congrats to you!!!! You both look fantastic. Yep, beaming is definitely the word. I'm adding my request to the others', to please tell us (at MM board) the birth story, when you can. Home births are so awesome and some of us hope to follow in those footsteps!

Get sleep and enjoy your new little son!

love, Emily
