Baby Boy!

Although a little late on the post, we welcomed Eli to the world last Monday.  He was a BIG one:  12 lb. and 1 oz. and 22″ long !  We — Kim, me, the nurses and doctors — were stunned at his size!  If he would have been much later, then a C-section would have been invoked.  The Lord really blessed the timing of the induction; it was starting to look like the baby was coming on Monday anyway.  We are thankful to the Lord that he arrived safe and healthy!! 

One more comment about the first week:  it is really neat to have a newborn around again.  All the little sounds and behaviors of ones so small — how quickly you forget these things after the first month or so.
