Maclain at one week! Time is already flying by!
Whoever said, taking pictures of newborns is easy... lied. This kid would not stop moving or close his eyes for more than a blink every now and then. He is so alert already and is constantly trying to figure out this place... and his parents.

Maclain Matthew Rhodes

Daddy has taken lots of great photos!! He is a good eater and sleeper!! (thus far)

Me getting to hold him for the first time.

Not so happy about what just happened.
My water broke at 10pm on Friday night. My body wasn't doing anything so they started pitocin on me. I labored for 12 hours and never made it past a five so I had to have a c-section. I was really scared to have major surgery, but everything turned out just fine. This is us just before going back to the OR. We are so excited for this little boy to join our family!!
