BIRTH day and Birthday!

The month of May has been crazy as usual, but I wanted to take a little bit of time to address a couple exciting things. First, MY NEW NEPHEW WAS BORN! On May 8, Jacob and Casey welcomed their first baby into this world: Homer Nicholas Scott Smith. Lots of meaning and significance behind that name. I love it. I think Casey would agree that everything went so fast. I just can't believe the little guy is finally here!! I was planning to go home the weekend of May 11 for the Smith Bros. open house (a related entry to follow), so selfishly, I thought it was pretty awesome that he arrived before that weekend so I could see him. Not to mention, I'm awesome and won the baby pool. ;) Anyway, all the build-up and anticipation and nerves have subsided, and our little Homer fits in perfectly with the Smith/Zimmerman clan! See a couple photos below!

Meeting and holding Homer for the first time! :))

Could he be any cuter?!

Even L got in on the baby holding action!

The second/other exciting thing that happened recently is that our little princess Austyn celebrated her 7th (it's still hard for me to believe she's 7) birthday on May 17! Every time I see that girl, I'm amazed at how much she's grown and how much she's learned. She is one special, beautiful young lady with an ever-growing heart. Happy (belated) birthday, A. I love you to pieces!
