Our baby boy has arrived! Everything went super fast once we actually got going. Obviously I'll write the more detailed story later but start to finish was only 3 1/2 hours!

He was born at 2:03pm. He weighs 6lbs 5 oz, (we don't know his length yet).
And PS, my brother Jake TOTALLY won the guessing game of his birth info. He guessed the date and weight exactly on and was only off the time by 40 minutes! Good job Uncle Jake!

He was in my room for about the first 5 minutes while they got him stabilized. I actually got to "hold" him for a second and give him a kiss before they took him to the NICU! Justin followed him and stayed for a few minutes while they got things set up. He's on the oscillating ventilator now and they're doing a few tests to decide what the next steps are.

Quick reminder to everyone: This will be a ROLLER COASTER!! Things can look great one minute and bad the next. We'll have good and bad minutes, hours and days. I'll be updating a LOT, so keep checking back often.

More pictures to come!
