He’s here! He’s here! Finnley Jack arrived yesterday morning, safe and sound.
He weighed 7 pounds, 9 ounces and was 20 inches long.
We think he’s wonderful in all kinds of ways. I’m especially surprised by how much hair he has. And it’s dark, like Adam’s hair. We haven’t sorted out who he looks the most like, but he’s definitely OURS.
The kids are beside themselves with excitement. Mira kissed him over and over and said, “Baby Finn! Baby Finn!”
Here we are, a family of NINE.
My labor was long, yet God was so gracious and merciful. I’ll tell you about it, but in the meantime, my friend Allison put up the most beautiful post of pictures she took from Finn’s birth. These pictures will make me weep until forever.
Finn was born on Andrew’s birthday, which is all kinds of special. Ordinarily, I would have written some sort of sappy post to tell you how fantastic my husband is, but instead, you should just go look at these pictures of my husband helping me do what I needed to do. They say it all.
Happy Birthday, to Andrew AND Finn!
