Beautiful baby Haylee

The downside in having to sign another round of paperwork on the house this weekend? I don't get to hold this sweet baby. :(

Introducing Haylee Tacoma Barker, 7 lbs 14 oz, 19 inches long.

Doesn't Tonya look GREAT!?! I did NOT look anywhere near that good right after labor!

And finally, the proud big brother. His comment when he first held her? "I love her."

Finally pictures of a baby other than Jacob to grace our blog. :)
Congratulations Brandon & Tonya!

We've been MIA in the blogosphere and social circles recently, and this is why:

This is going to be OURS within the next few months. Yes, its true, we are going to become proud townhome owners! This is a BIG step for us, and we couldn't be more anxious, excited, scared and happy all at the same time. We've signed all the paperwork, picked out paint colors, cabinets, countertops and flooring, and now we just sit back and WAIT for it to be finished with a projected move-in date of July. Who knew I'd practically have to quit my day job and need to hire a fill-in mother/wife/housekeeper in order to make all this happen. We're finally over the hump and can leave the time consuming searching, choosing, signing behind us and get caught up on the rest of our life now! *Beware, many catch up posts to follow!*
