The One Introducing Our Baby

Our little

Dawson Riley

was born Saturday March 13, 2010
at 1:14 AM.
He came in at 7 pounds, 11 ounces,
and was 19.5 inches long.

We are all very busily in love over here at the Farr residence.
The whole thing is so indescribable. Before they are born, you can't comprehend how it will be and how you will feel. Then, in only a moment, they're there taking your breath away.

I love his little teeny "muscly" looking arms. . .
his full head of hair. . .
how he is the spittin' image of his daddy. . .
how much Halle adores him . . .
how cute it is to watch Drew be a "big brother". . .
how proud and happy Kev is with him. . .
mmmm...what can I say? I love all of him.
Thanks Heavenly Father for this miracle.

The one to you

My Dear Baby Boy-

I finished decorating your bedroom today.
Then I packed my bag for the hospital.
Your car seat is in Daddy's car.
In other words, we're ready for you.

So could you come out now?

. . . . .

I thought you might like a sneak peak of the fun things we've been doing to be ready for you to come home to us. . . .

First of all, your big sister Halle, made this hat. Didn't she do a good job? She spent days and days on a hat loom, getting it just right. It's so soft and fuzzy, I know you are gonna love it.

Your aunties, Autumn & Ora worked for two days painting your room while I stayed downstairs and entertained your crazy cousins. I about lost my mind during the 1,798,763,001th rerun of the song "Jingle Bells" with Halle on the piano and everyone else on (very LOUD) vocals. But aren't you excited to join this cousin collection?

Anyways, I've been busy sewing up a storm! Burp rags. . .

and changing pads. . .

diaper/wipes containers . . .

your quilt . . .

crib bedding . . .

I designed them all without even a single pattern! Cool, eh?

So here's the way your room looks now
(though the pics are NOT as cute as in real life...I can't get a good angle tonight). . .

Daddy was up in the middle of the night on Saturday, painting your crib brown. Auntie Autumn and him painted the rest of the furniture last month.

See, can't you tell how much we love you already?

I also designed these gears for your wall. Then my friend, Shelly cut them out for me on vynil.

Daddy says that even though they're not
"orthogonal to the circumference".
they still look


I guess that's just what happens when someone goes to school 40+ hours a week. Smart-person- gibberish. Don't worry, I don't get it either.

Anyways, I'm gonna go upstairs now and wait ever so patiently for you.

Oh, and one more thing- would you mind doing me a tummy-tuck while you're in there? That, my Son, would be awesome. I'll pay ya back, I swear.

Thanks and Loves!

The one with maternity pics

Maternity pictures . . .they're something you never feel like having taken of yourself, but end up regretting not doing them later.

I bit the bullet this time. We set up my photog stuff in our living room last night and called my sister in law (the wonderful Tiffany) over to snap for me. She did awesome. Here are some of the faves:

The Farr 5!

Have I mentioned that I like this guy???

Teeny-tiny DKNY shoes. LOVE 'em.

Drew's already playing cars with the little man. . .

She's so pretty. . .

And a few of just me and my new little guy . . .

We can't wait to meet you, buddy!

See you in a couple of days!
