On January 1, 2014, we were able to bring Walker home! So for us, this new year means so much to us. We have had a long, tough road to get this little guy, but now we are all older and even more appreciative of his existence (if that can happen)....Bennett and Preston included. They love to hold him, and are big helpers to us. Everyone was excited when we came home, and our new life of "zone defense" has begun. My parents agreed to stay and help for another week, so Steve and I were able to relax more and ease into it.

The first couple of days, I was pretty sore, but by Saturday...I had rounded the corner with my pain. In addition, Walker is proving to be a wonderful sleeper! He has had several long stretches within the first couple of weeks, and has even made it from 10:00PM to 6:30AM one day (yippee)!
We have had many visitors since being home, several baths, newborn photos taken by Lindsey Smith, Walker's one week well visit, and a few outings...all before the two week mark. Things have been going great, but we have had a lot of nice friends bring us food and offer to help with the big kids, so the transition has been easier.

We sure hope things continue to go as well as they have been, and Walker continues to be a great sleeper! We are all in love with this sweet baby boy.
