Holden's Here! And he's perfect...

For those of you who are already parents, you'll understand perfectly when I say I haven't had much time to write since the actual induction Sunday morning. 

It's was 23 hours and 44 minutes from the time we arrived at the hospital to Holden's debut...

I'm excited to share the amazing spiritual and transcendent experience that labor and delivery was for all of us -- mom, baby and Daddy.  But for now, it suffices to say that nothing really worked the way we were expecting; and it was all entirely perfect. 

Holden has joined us... made our family complete to this point; and he is a miracle in more than one way. 

He was born Sunday evening at 6:46 pm, 7 pounds 10 ounces, 21.5 inches of perfection...

Thank you to those of you who have already left well wishes and congratulations via text, email, phone, facebook, this blog, etc.  We appreciate it. (and my apologies for not getting back to you,... we've been a bit preoccupied. ;)

We plan on returning from the hospital on Thursday and I hope to share our amazing birthing story with you all sometime after... but for now, it's time to nurse again and I can hardly stand to be on the other side of the room from him. 

My blessing, my miracle, my precious baby Holden.

I know how you feel in every sence. It is the most amazing thing being a first time mother. I wish you well in the next few weeks as you adjust to him being on the outside. You guys sound ready for whatever life brings. Good luck and i'll keep you guys in my prayers.

My two cents... said...

Congratulations! We are so glad that both you and Holden are healthy and happy!

I am not sure who this "Adam" character is who guessed Holden would be 14 lbs, but I am pretty sure I technically won bragging rights for guessing Holden's arrival date ect. If you need any other predictions let me know I am pretty much psychic.

Congratulations to all three of you. A terrific jazz musician named Bob Dorough said it way better than I ever could, and you all know the song. Pretty soon Holden will learn it too. Here you go:

We are so happy for you!! And kind of envious--we miss our babies, and our own far-away grandchildren for that matter. Holden's a real cutie. We think of him as a grandnephew-in-law (or something like that!) Loves,
