Happy 4th of July!

Blake and I came home from the hospital on the 3rd, my mom's birthday, and got to spend the whole holiday weekend at home, with a lot of my family who came in town to help us out. We had a fun 4th of July playing with the baby. That night we lit fireworks in on the street in front of our house. Parker couldn't get enough of them, and kept asking for more. Hope everyone had a fun holiday weekend!

Brotherly love

Parker has had such a fun time playing with family that has been in town. During the birth, he got to stay home with my little brother Matt and he had the time of his life with him. That night, Park came to the hospital to meet his new baby brother. He was interested for about 5 seconds, and then spent the rest of his time drinking from my water jug, which apparently is much more exciting. We love our little boys and can't wait for them to become best little friends.

Blake Matthew Burnham

Little Blake was born on July 2nd at 2:02pm. He surprised us by being a whopping 8 lbs, 8 oz. The birth was so pleasant, and easy. My epidural was perfect, I had great support with Chad, my mom and Tia in the room, everything went really quick and smoothly and Blake made his entrance with only one push. I think I got pretty lucky. The whole experience was so special and spiritual. I love that I get to be a mom and bring these tiny spirits into the world. To top it all off, Blake is the cutest little guy with black, wavy hair and perfect little features. He resembles Parker, but definitely has his own look. Here are some pictures from the birth:
