We Have a Son!

Sebastian Edward Howell was born on January 10th, 2014 weighing 10 lbs 6 oz (yes…you read that correctly!) and measuring 22 inches in length.

We are over the moon with happiness and couldn’t be more grateful to have Sebastian in our lives. Lola is slowly beginning to warm up to him although she doesn’t really seem to care whether he is around or not. She likes to call him Bubba and on occasion she’ll lean in and give him kisses yet this is usually followed by an attempted grab at his face. The terms “touch nice” are currently the most used phrase of the Howell household. I would love to share more, but I’m going to relish in these amazingly precious moments with my family.

I’ll be back soon with an update on Lola and her new school. Let me just say that she loves it, the staff has already been incredible with her and our child has begun to learn so much just in the short week she has been there. While I was apprehensive of the early mornings and long days, Lola is adjusting to her new schedule quite well, in fact, she and her brother seem to be fighting for the earliest riser title. Here she is getting bundled up for her first day.

I’m so happy for Lola and her newfound adventures and I’m just as happy to have this quiet time solely for myself and my son (except thankfully my mama is here visiting this week). It’s amazing how life seems to work itself out. Now excuse me while I absorb every ticking second of my newborn baby boy. There is nothing quite like it.
