Ezra is here and we live in Rochester, NY now.

At 1:28 am on January 17, he came.
The first thing I said when I saw him was "He looks like Jeff."
Things didn't go as I had planned, but I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Never have I felt as close to heaven as I did in that labor and delivery room.
Ezra Walter Poole is here and he is perfect.

(Our first day home from the hospital. 3 days old.)
(Hanging out in his swing. 3 weeks old.)
He is already three weeks old.
Three weeks! How did that happen?
He has already grown so much and I keep telling him to cut it out and just stay tiny forever, but he won't listen. He does what he wants.
When Jeff came home last night he said, "He's gotten bigger since I saw him this morning! Can you tell?"

(The Hill Cumorah Visitors' Center in Palmyra, NY.)
Oh, yeah. We have a new home. It's in Rochester, NY.
Moving was hard.
We're so grateful so many family and friends went out of their way to see us and help us these last few weeks.
So far Rochester has treated us pretty well. Except their Wal-Marts close at 11 pm which I didn't think happened outside of Rexburg.

 Also, I'm pretty sure the new definition of love is the way JSP looks at his son.


  1. omg that last picture of him in his swing with his pacifier is the best! He looks like a little man there! haha.

    I miss you already, but I'm so happy things are going good so far!

    Oh, and I love you, and Ezra, and JSP!

  2. Congrats! I might be passing through the Rochester area this summer, I'll have to stop and say hi!

  3. So happy for you guys. What a perfect baby. The doctor said Jessica's could come any day now. I think Ezra has your mouth Amy. Glad you got moved and had some help doing it.

  4. These photos are heart melters! Your family is beautiful.
