Baby Max Has Arrived!!!!!

Hello and happy day to you!  It's a VERY happy day for me, because I get to share some of the first pictures of our sweet baby Max who was born yesterday.  It's been a CRAZY few days, and Mr. Max took his sweet time getting here, but he finally arrived by C-Section on Monday, November 29, 2010 (his actual due date) at 11:14 a.m..  Maxwell Owen Souther weighed in at 7 lbs. 9 oz., and was 21 inches long.  I realize that we are completely biased, but we think he's the cutest thing we've ever seen.  Momma Cassidy and baby Max are both doing well, and Daddy Tyler is as proud as can be.   Can you blame him?

 Tyler and Max right after he was born.
 The first time meeting mom.  She's completely smitten, BTW.
 More than ready for his first feeding, because the nurse couldn't make a move with her finger in his mouth.

Thanks for indulging this first time grandma!  Allen and I are so happy and proud of the new addition to our family, and we can't wait to get them home!!  We feel so very blessed, and want to wish you a beautiful day filled with wonderful blessings for you, too!!

Love ya,
