These three right here, y'all...I couldn't get enough. Carleigh and Eric are two absolutely wonderful first-time parents whom I had the pleasure of getting to know a few months ago. They're awesome people, crazy about dogs, and were over the moon excited to meet their tiny little man, Mr. Ian. Even though he decided to come a bit earlier than his due date and it looked like he may have been a Christmas baby, that sweet little boy was no fool, and decided to wait until *after* Christmas Day to make his grand entrance.
More presents that way, kid - good call.
It was SUCH an honor, being there for these guys to be a part of their story and watching two become three.
Check out a few of my very favorite moments from Mr. Ian's grand entrance!
Carleigh absolutely rocked her unmedicated birth. Eric was there to provide a backup or two, as well as all the support a girl could wish for!
Getting some screen time to make sure Ian's cousin and future BFF could get in on the excitement!
It was like Backrub Inception. Dad was tired, too, you know. ;)
The connection between these two was magic! Carleigh had the best attitude of anyone in excruciating pain that I know!
When things got harder than hard, Eric knew just what to say. Or not say, as the case may have been!
Moms hurt when their kids hurt - no matter how old they get.
This is when it really sunk in! We're having a baby!
So many emotions!
That "I just can't get enough" look on his face. <3
