New Baby!

The baby is finally here! After months of pre-term labor and other issues, we now have a new baby boy! He was born on February 25th at 8:20 PM. He is 8 pounds 8 ounces and 20.5 inches long. (Much bigger than we were expecting.) =)

He is the snuggliest little baby ever and makes fun baby sounds all the time. Other than that he is very quiet and laid-back.

Mom and Baby are both doing great. It's an exciting time for all of us.

yeah!!! So glad things went well, although I heard you pushed like you were a Speechly. Over two hours, no fun, but hey, with Ruby I only pushed for 20 min it gets better. Super cute, I hope you get some sleep. Whats his name?

Janneka said if she had known there was a vote, she would have voted for the name "Aiden". I like "Eli".
We didn't know about your site until now!
Love,
Laurie & Janneka

And p.s. I'm very jealous JD got to hold him for 4 hours yesterday. Yes, he rubbed it in with all his messages and texts all day today.
