My new nephew Abraham is here!

He finally came last night, and he is just beautiful! Mama and baby are happy and healthy. He weighed 8lbs and 5 oz and was 20 1/2" long. It always amazes me how you can love someone instantly! Little Abe had me at the first glance! I can't wait to take him on adventures and tell him stories! I love being an aunt!
I think Lily and Iris are in love too. They were just saying "ooooooooooohhhh baaaaaaby" over and over when they saw him, it was so sweet. They even cried when we had to step out of the room.
I just had to add this picture of Abe's head FULL of hair. See how they had to part it! It reminds me of Timothy! The nurses got such a kick out of fixing Tim's hair in the NICU because they said they never got babies with hair. I hope to get some better pictures today when I visit. Last night it was just too crazy for picture taking.
.
I also wanted to thank you all so much for your kind and encouraging words about our decision to adopt! We are just so happy! We did get some good information from the last post that we will be researching in the next few days, if anyone has any helpful suggestions please comment or shoot us an email!

I feel the same as Lauren-I am so tearful just looking at these sweet pictures! The girls are just beautiful looking at their new baby brother with their daddy & then with Martha. I know everyone is so proud! I am so happy for the whole Caffee family!

I love babies!! Your family is just blessed again! I must admit I am jealous of the hair my 7 and half month old granddaughter still only has peach fuzz.

He is beautiful!! I love his name as well. Lily and Iris are adorable too! I was born with a head of dark hair- I had my first haircut before my baptism at 4 weeks old.

Congratulations!
