Baby Update :)

Happy Monday! I announced Friday that my son, Luke Ryan Thigpen was born last Wednesday, May 2nd at 11:48am, weighing 7 lbs.,13 oz. and measuring 19.5" long. He was 11 days early but is healthy, happy and doing great. I ended up having an emergency C-section but everything turned out fine and I'm recovering well. We finally got to come home yesterday and I'm planning on taking a few weeks off to enjoy the new love of my life. I've lined up a ton of fabulous guest bloggers as well as reader home tours and reader DIY furniture makeovers for the entire month of May, so be sure to continue visiting for inspiration! Here are a few pics of my new bundle of joy. He is such a blessing from God and my husband and I couldn't be happier. Thank you for all of your warm wishes last Friday - your thoughtful comments mean so very much to me. I'll be checking in soon with updates! xoxo - Julie

  29. what a precious little boy... and cute as can be. adorable outfit in that last photo. what a wonderful time this is. take it from me... i sincerely feel like i just brought isaac home from the hospital... and he will be eleven months old next week. when people say it goes by fast, they truly mean it... take whatever you imagine that to mean, and double it. that's how fast it will go. so DO savor every single second. many blessings to you and your family. CONGRATS!
