Family of Three: Introducing Oliver Elijah

After almost 40 hours of labor, our precious son, Oliver Elijah, was born at 6:59am on Tuesday, December 10th.  He weighs a whopping 9lbs 7.8oz, is 22 inches long, and has a beautiful head full of hair!  We are so in love with this sweet boy, and completely in awe of the miracle of life.  

We should be leaving the hospital soon, and we're eager to bring this cutie home and relax with him.  I'll just share some picture for now, and hopefully when I'm feeling more recovered and a little less exhausted, I'll try and write more. We're biased, but we think he's the most beautiful, precious child we've ever laid eyes on!
