Josie's big debut

This 8 pound 7 ounce little bundle o' love is my little Josie Scout Tribe. She rocked my entire world at 8:13 pm on June 3rd, 2007—life will never be the same! You may notice that Josie has her eyes closed in all of these pictures. True observation. See, she sleeps a lot, and Allan and I don't sleep enough, so we haven't managed to capture her awake quite yet. I'll get on that. Josie really is a delightful little human. As I mentioned, she sleeps like a champion. I've got no complaints—life is just grand.

Allan is real gem of a daddy, and I’ve discovered that fatherhood is dead sexy. There’s nothing that makes you want to hold your man more than watching him change a poopy diaper.

Parenthood has quite the learning curve, I’ve discovered, but I must say it has been a lot of fun. It’s so fabulous to be one of the most important people to a little baby. It’s a real treat to finally be the one a baby cries for—to have the magic touch, if you will.

All in all, Josie has brought nothing but joy to our little family; all the challenges of motherhood are worth the happiness I feel when I hold her perfect little body in my arms. It’s worth losing your once smokin’ bod, (can my skin ever be the same??) washing your sheets three times a week, losing sleep, smelling like spit-up…yep—it’s worth every lovely surprise that comes along with the baby. Because despite all that, you just can’t beat that sweet feeling you get when they fall asleep on your chest, or when their face lights up with a smile (even if it is a bit of gas). Hats off, Josie. Congratulations on dazzling your parents, and changing our lives forever.

Yeah! I can finally put a face to the name. Darling face--darling name, and all that hair is a wonderful surprise as well. I think she is a beautiful babe and I know what you mean about daddies. I thought nothing was more sexy than watching Aaron climb an overhang in the rock with nothing but his hands, but sissy cooing really takes the cake. Thanks for the delightful entries, and the shout-out.
