Introducing...

James Stephen
Born 06.09.12 at 12:32pm
8 lbs. 4 ozs. and 20.5" long

All three of us are doing well but tired after a 25 hour labor. So thankful to God for our beautiful son and a successful delivery! More details to come, but I will say we made it without a C-section which I am thankful for.

As all "infertiles" know, the feeling of finally getting pregnant is only upstaged by the day you actually hold your baby (or babies) in your arms. Totally surreal. :) Congratulations.
