Baby Boy has arrived





Our day finally arrived and we got to meet our newest son. To the left is a picture of our new one being greeted by his big brother Tristan and big sister Sydney.


Finley John was born Nov. 19th at 9:02 p.m. weighing 7 lbs. 15 oz. and 20" long. It was a long labor for me, different than the rest. I was induced and really didn't get in to any active labor until around noon when my Dr. broke my water. I got my epidural about an hour after that, unfortunately after 4 attempts, the epidural only took on one side. I was in a lot of pain and didn't think I was going to be able to have that baby at all. Needless to say, I was not a pretty picture that day, swearing a lot and just wanting it to be over with. Luckily, without the epidural I pushed pretty good for 1/2 hour and our son arrived.

We are thrilled, the kids got to meet him the following day as they were already home in bed by the time he arrived. They love him and Sydney couldn't wait to hold her new little doll. I'm still recovering a little and will enjoy the next few days with my parents here helping out.

Thanks for everyone's well wishes, I really appreciate all the thoughts and prayers of our friends!

Kim, He is absolutely adorable! I was so busy this week that I completely forgot to say my, "Congratulations" on you new bundle of joy. Your family is very cute and I loved seeing the pictures. So glad everything went well for you. When our granddaughter was born we wouldn't let her mom have the epidural or any drugs but she did have a little about 45 minutes before Coleen was born. I am so happy for you & your family. God Bless, Ida
