baby Banks is here!

The first baby in our family. 
The first boy in our family. 

Meet Banks.
A week late, big boy Banks finally decided to join the party late last night. 
He weighs over 9lbs, has huge hands, feathers for hair, and loves sucking on that bottom lip. 

I think I cried more than anyone else last night. 
I cried when Michael said, "I'm a dad!"
I cried when we wheeled Banks around in his little tote tray for Sarah to see his face.
I've cried twice while putting this post together. 

I almost cried when we discovered how yummy and cheap the hospital's cafe was at 10pm. 
But sometimes you just gotta hold it together. 

The only thing that could top this will be our own little cryings- or, in Banks' case, little lip suckings. 

I need a tissue.
