Our precious Micah at 1 week. He's a wonderful newborn. He loves to snuggle and to be held. There's always somebody in line! He looks a little like all of his siblings. He nurses well and usually sleeps a good four hour stretch at night. Then, nurses again to sleep for another 3 hours (or so) We're not exactly on a complete schedule yet. I'm finding that I'd rather hold him than do anything else!

For Micah's First Sunday we stayed home. (Me, Micah and Brenna that is. Brenna was my caregiver!) I find that I'm a little different with my later babies than I was with my first 3. With Brenna she was 26 hours old when we first went to church. I'm just not able to bounce back that quickly anymore! I am thankful our homechurch now has live streaming! We were able to watch even though we couldn't be there!
Then, a few days later, we made our first outing. What better place to travel than to Grammy's house! She made a wonderful meal for us and it was a great time! Here's our family of 8!
So, we're getting back to the swing of things and I have a ton of pics that I want to post. Are you ready to be engulfed with Micah pictures? :o)

Do you notice Brenna in the background? She seems so happy that her baby sis can now be a big sis, too!
Then, my pastor ever since I was 8 years old came over to see our new baby. We are very blessed with Pastor Strange and "Miss" Judy. They ooohhhed and aaawwwed over our Micah and then prayed for him as well.

Patrick proudly announced "It's a boy!" and then called the awaiting family to come in.
Joshua (big brother)
Elisabeth (big sister)
Brenna (big sister)
Keela (my sister) kept all the family informed of Micah's arrival.
Everyone in the room made predictions of how much he weighed. There was lots of 7 lbs and ? and 8 lbs and ? Everyone was shocked when she said, "No, you're all wrong, He's 9 lbs and 3 oz!"
Proud Grandma dressing her 19th Grandchild.
There were many in line to hold our precious baby!
Aunt Tabitha and Katie
Aunt Taylin. My sweet sister has always been the emotional type. She started to cry as she held him. It was such a sweet moment!
Great Uncle Claud
Mam-maw (which is Micah's Great Grandma)
And that's just half of the pictures! There were lots of cousins that had a turn to hold Micah, too!

I'm so excited to tell you our baby is here! It's a boy!! Micah Reuben Gimenez was born Wednesday night at 6:51 pm. He weighed 9 lbs and 3 oz. He's absolutely adorable and I am in love! I've got lots of pictures to share and his birth story, too. But, that will come after a few more winks of sleep and kisses to my new baby! Thank you everyone for praying!
