He's Here!

The long wait is finally over!  Our son, Hosea Jude arrived at 11:09 on Friday evening.  He was 21.5" long, and weighed a whopping 10 pounds!  It's a long story of a short labor, but he was welcomed into the world in our bedroom, and his birth was nothing short of perfect.  Both he and I are doing amazingly well - healthy and happy.

God answered all of our prayers regarding little Hosea's arrival, and we couldn't be more pleased with our little guy!  His name means "He will sing joyfully of the salvation of the one true God".

 

A few hours after his birth - so nice to be in my own bed.

 He has SO much hair.  One day old.

Two days old.
