I'M AN AUNTIE!!!!
Meet my nephew, Rowan Bradley Porter!!! He was born this morning (April 13th) at almost 2am, he weighs 6 lbs 4 oz, and is 19 3/4 inches long!! He's just a liiiiiittle guy!! And he is SO friggin cute!!!!!!! He has lots of dark hair (how on earth did Sarah get the dark-haired kid, and *I* got the blondie?!?!?!), and biiiiig beautiful eyes! And the cutest lips!! He looks a lot like his daddy, but he definitely has the Lowe nose!!!!!!!! :D
My mom, dad, Grayson, and I flew down here (to Arizona) as soon as we could, to help out with the baby. We were going to try to make it for the delivery, but Sarah's water broke last night AFTER the last flight of the night, and was so efficient at her laboring that she had him after only 6 hours!!!! Lucky duck. :P She almost made it all the way without pain meds, for which she is my hero! Trent took very good care of her for us, and she did very well!! They sure made one cute kiddo!!! Grayson hasn't met him quite yet, because they don't allow kids on the maternity unit unless they're siblings. But when baby Ro comes home from the hospital, Gray will get to meet his cousin, and I will post pictures of that momentous occasion as well :)
Congrats, sis!!! You done good!!
(check out the awesome mullet! He has already been given the nickname "Mullet Man" -- poor little kid!! hehe)
