welcome to the world bean

This is the cutest baby EVER.

Here is the conversation that has been happening in our house ever since last weekend: "Terry, I'm an aunt!" ... "Ellen, you're already an aunt to 13 kids." ... "Oh, right, okay but still, I'M AN AUNT!"

Ashley went into labor Friday afternoon (emailed Adam to let him know she was having contractions - hilarious) and the bean was born at 6:44 Saturday morning.

Terry and I found surrogate parents and house sitters for the 6 dogs for the night and finally got in the car around 11pm to head to Cary to meet him. Picked up mom in Winston at midnight and made it to their house around 2:30, slept for a few hours and were in the drive-thru of McDonalds when we got the call that the bean had arrived!

Before going to sleep when we got to their house that night, I poked around his sweet little
nursery and took some sweet little pictures with the only light in the room being his night light. In the basket by Ashley's cozy glider are all of his stuffed animals. Hiding in among them all, poking out his little worn nose and rubbed away fur was Tigey. Tigey is Adam's stuffed animal from childhood who has been hidden, abused, slept with, hung from fans, strangled by plastic snakes, and flushed down the toilet by no other than m-e.
Do not feel bad for Tigey. Bunny has endured WAY worse, and barely lived to tell about it. But, it was so sweet to me to see this familiar face among all the new to welcome this sweet boy into the world and into his new home.

Oh, what's that, you actually want to see his face?
Okay, here he is:
Caleb Hillman Underwood
6 lb 15 ounces
19 inches

Your favorite aunt e loves you bean.
Going to take 'real' pictures of him mid-July, be on the lookout.

oh, and the other conversation in our house this week and while holding the bean: (insert blinking eye lashes longingly looking up at terry)
"I want one...."
