Our New Addition

He's finally here! Well he's been here 6 days already but I am so happy to have him home and joining the rest of his brothers and sister. His name is Tyson Evans Dahl. We will be calling him Ty for short and Evans is Jared's grandfathers middle name. He weighed 9 lbs. 3 oz. and was 21 inches long. He was the exact same size Payton was. Somehow she felt bigger. He is such a wonderful baby. He is only getting up twice to eat at night and going right back to sleep. I just love the newborn stage. They are so innocent and when they open their eyes for the very first times and you can tell that they recognize that it is you and they intently listen is just priceless. I love it. It almost makes me sad that this is probably the last time I experience that.


Payton and the boys are just so happy and are loving on him every second. Micah says "He's so cute Mom". I am so glad that Micah is doing so well with everything. He is constantly wanting to hold him and give him his binky and is so happy to be an older brother. I am doing well under the circumstances. The surgery went well and I am slowly healing. Still in pain here and there but that is to be expected I guess. I just wish I could fast forward a couple months. It has been so helpful and has been so nice to have Jared home right now. He is absolutely wonderful and being Mr. Mom.


We are all happy to have Ty home with us and we can now adjust to being a family of six.

Oh look at him! Perfection! So sweet that little face. Does he look like any of your other kids when they were little? Maybe I see Micah??? Not sure. Congrats. You sound like you're doing so well. I wish I could come over, bring you dinner, and hold little Ty while you shower. XOXOXOX

He's so cute! Let me know when you're ready for visitors. I'd love to come meet Ty. And let me know if you need anything in the mean time ie get the kids out of the house, food, anything. I'm just down the canyon.

Hi Renee, I'm so so happy for you that you finally get to be done being pregnant. Ty is so cute. I can't believe a little thing like you can make such a big baby. I bet you're already back to your prebaby self. Congratulations! I really hope to get to see you and your family this summer. I'm crossing my fingers that we can still come up there. I'll keep you posted.
