Man, he is beautiful! One thing ya'll do well is make beautiful children! Thank you for the pictures. I love how Fordy is on the go...even in his first picture with his baby brother...but not without his cracker. It was so fun hearing that Gus was indeed a boy. Thanks for the surprise...not sure I would have been able to hang on & wait! It won't be long until we get to hold that darling son of yours and play with C & Ford. We love you and are so happy to celebrate the birth of your son with you.
