The boy is here!

We have a baby boy, born at 10:40 am by c-section.  He weighs in at 6lbs 13oz.  and is 19 1/4 inches tall.  He has a head of hair and looks a bit like his mom.  Pictures will be posted.

Update – and pictures
I know his first name will be Zecharia.  I am not sure of how they will spell that exactly but if I’ve spelled it wrong I will correct myself. 

And here are the first pictures of him.  Grace finally got to hold him this evening.  He did not want to suck so has a naso-gastric tube in place.  Pray he will get the hang of sucking soon.

And a closer shot – we think he looks like Grace.

    Grace…I hope you’re doing well! Can’t wait to see the new little babe sometime! He looks cute in the pictures, and I’m sure he’s about 100x even cuter in real life!

    Hope all is well for you! You are all in my thoughts and prayers!
