The full birth story is in the works, but in case you missed the announcement on my other social media accounts – He’s here!

He weighed 7 lbs, 8 oz, 21 inches long.  Born at 8:46am.  (He’s gained back all of his birth weight plus 2 ozs as of today, we know because we’ve been back and forth to the doctor for jaundice checks.  Waiting to hear if we need the lights for him, I’m hoping his numbers are finally going down.)

It took us a long time to come up with a name we both liked and we stuck with the Biblical theme, mostly because the names go so well together.  His middle name is to honor Seth’s mother who passed away in February of last year.  I love that both Moses and Immanuel have middle names that honor their grandmothers.  I’d really rather their grandmothers be here, but life is cruel that way, isn’t it?

I’m recovering so much better than I did last time, it’s amazing what skipping 30 hours of labor and 2 hours of pushing will do for you!

Moses is kind of ignoring the fact that we have a baby, which is fine, we’re just going at his pace and not rushing things.  He’ll come around, I’m sure.
