Bree and Kenoa's Visit

My cousin Breeana and her baby boy, Kenoa flew out to visit for a few days. Bree was such a big help! I think she came at just the right time. I couldn't drive (Dr.'s orders) so she took Max and I to our appointments. She gave me a lot of good pointers and was just a wonderful big cousin. It was really nice spending quality time together. I love you Bree!

Max's first bath!

Last night, Max had his first sponge bath. As you can see, he was not very happy about it! He was so cute though and he smells so good now! :) After he was all bundled up and warm, he was back to his happy self. Daddy was excited to pick out his pajama. I love the way
Max looks at his daddy... such admiration! :p

The Labor Coaches

I just wanted everyone to know how wonderful my labor coaches were. Through those 8 hours of intense labor at the hospital, Mike and Soin were so awesome. I know they hated seeing me in so much pain but they were so good at keeping me focused and talking me through it and reminding me to relax and breath. Without them, I wouldn't have lasted as long as I did. I love them so much. Michael, you are the love of my life. This experience only made me fall deeper in love with you. I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful husband and daddy for our baby boy. Soin, you are my best friend and you have no idea how much you mean to me. Thank you for all of your support. You are a wonderful Aunt.
In between contractions...snacking on some jello.

We weren't looking forward to the next contraction!

We came home to these gorgeous flowers from Soin. She's so sweet.

Our Maximilian

We're home! I finally have a chance to put up some more pictures of our sweet angel. He is absolutely perfect and more than we could ever ask for. We love him so much. I'm doing a lot better. I'm still sore and healing. I can't believe I'm finally a Mommy. My dreams of having a wonderful husband and beautiful children are coming true. I always wanted to be a great wife and mommy growing up. I will do my best. These boys are the two loves of my life. I'm so excited for our future!

He's here!

This is Mike. I don't have a lot to say. I know once Bianca is feeling a little better she will put together a nice post on here. Bianca is doing great. Max is doing great. That's all that matters.

We love you all and want to thank you for your love. All of your support, advice and gifts have made this the most wonderful experience of our lives. Here are some pictures. You should be able to see bigger versions by clicking on them. Enjoy!

Mike's Labor Day Burgers

Michael really wanted me to put these on the blog because he's so proud of them! He made them himself and they were delicious. None of us could finish it but Mike was pretty close. Yummy!
