I believe in love at first sight.

Please excuse the silence around here… the last three weeks have been a blissful beginning with our very new baby boy ♥

Damian Achilles Dozier

20 inches

We spent most of my pregnancy uncertain of what to name him. After Rocky’s surgery to repair his Achilles tendon, it was unanimous between the two of us to make his middle name Achilles. We each had a first name chosen, but Rock’s was much more fitting with that middle name. I love that his initials are D.A.D.

I had Damian at the Wright Patterson Medical Center {where Rocky works}. They’ve just finished remodeling the Family Birthing Center a few weeks before Damian was born. I was so impressed with my midwife & nurses. Everyone was so encouraging and kind, it was a very special experience. They also provided this beautiful baby blanket & knit hat {that I will keep forever}!

Rocky was supposed to be deployed to Kuwait right now, but his injury made him ineligible to go. Every time I smell his cologne on Damian, I’m reminded of how blessed we are to have him here to meet Damian right from the beginning. Seeing them together is pure euphoria for me.

Remind me, the next time I’m beating myself up about what I need to accomplish in life… that nothing could ever top bringing two incredible little men into the world.

Damian looks a lot like his four year old brother Kevin. Adding another son to our little family is like being taken back to the best time of your life and someone replaying the lovely memories all over again like a beautiful song…Â and this time it’s even better because you have more partners to dance with.

Thank you for all the well wishes, support, and patience. I’ve taken my sweet time enjoying every moment ♥
