Beautiful Boy

Our boy arrived at 8:38 am today, after 26 hours of labor and via c-section. He weighed a hefty 9lbs 10 oz which directly contributed to how he eventually came into the world this morning - but I will post a full birth story later when I am not spontaneously passing out. I am exhausted and happier than I have ever been. Best day of my life by far.


Happy birth day Zane!

You deserve a medal for all you went thru to bring your precious baby boy (future linebacker) into this world! Lordy, 26 hours of labor AND a C-section?? Sounds like you got to experience EVERYTHING about childbirth -- God bless your wonderful family!!
