Quick update, then sleep... maybe!

Thanks for all of your prayers. The Lord certainly answered! Wound up at the hospital for an induction Friday evening. Then:

Daniel Earle (after his grandpas); 11:56pm on Friday, January 9th; 9 lbs. even; 22" long.

*Completely* uneventful--well, OK, uneventful other than that unplanned water birth (which was against hospital policy, LOL)-- 4 & 1/2 hour labor & delivery (breaking my water did the trick). Baby did beautifully!! Scored 9 & 9 on his Apgars. We're (rather jokingly) talking of calling him "the niner."

Were able to escape for home with him Saturday afternoon. Here's a quick picture of his older siblings checking him out. :-)
