Isaac is here!!!!

Whew!! A long couple of days, and Isaac is finally with us! He was born about 10:15p.m. local time by c-section. Everything went great, and Isaac did perfect through everything. It was a long time, basically, because they were trying to give Jen every chance to deliver naturally if possible, and things just didn't happen right. Since her water had broke on Monday night here, there just wasn't any more time they'd risk letting her try for the safety of her and him. Not what she wanted, but all is well. The most important thing is that we have a very healthy baby boy. He's very laid-back so far (only cried for about 10 seconds when he came out and never started up again for a long while!) and took to feeding pretty quickly. The numbers: 7lbs 12oz, 21.5" long. You know that more pictures are on the way, but here's some we got just after he was born. Thanks for your prayers everyone!!

I just looked at the pics with Asher, telling him about his new friend, and he smiled SO BIG when we got to the ones with you guys in them. :) So, congratulations from him, too!

P.S. Sorry if this posts twice, apparently Wordpress and Blogger aren't playing nice today.
