It's a Boy!

Introducing Henry James!

Henry was born last night at 12:38 a.m.  He weighs 5 lb. 13 oz. and is 20 inches long.  He is perfectly healthy and just precious!

Here he is meeting his big sister, Nina.  She gave him lots of kisses and sang "Rockabye Baby" to him!
Today has been so much fun getting to know this little guy and sleeping a lot (thankfully Henry has been as sleepy as his mama!).

Thank you so much for your well-wishes and prayers!  I am so blessed to have so many friends in the blogging world.  And now I am off to have some more sleep!

Carrie, my Congratulations are a bit late because I didn't have the internet for two week, but I hope you'll still take em. How precious is your little boy!!! Love his name too - a strong, sturdy boy name. Hope you're getting enough rest to get you through the day, but we mommy's know how it is. It's amazing that God created us to be able to run on pure adrenaline for the first three months of a babe's life. I'll have to get that book you reccomended for my next (God willing) baby.

Congrats again, and I can't wait to see more pics and hear how yall are doing. Blessings to you!
