Merry Birthday!!

At 3:30 am Christmas morning I awoke to a surprise... my water had broken. Not only was this the first time I have had my water break at home, but our little one wasn't due to arrive for another two and a half weeks! Due to some complications we hurried to the hospital. Thanks to technology we Deric and I were able to watch the kids open their gifts via Skype on the computer. Later in the day 5:33pm to be exact, our sweet little baby Roy was born. He weighed 10lbs 2 oz and was 21 1/2 inches long. What a special Christmas gift! Here he is with his dad for the first time!

Roy with his Mom, only minutes old. Notice the blood splatter all over... that is from the spray that occurred when Deric cut the cord (that has never happened before!!)

Later that night the kids all came to receive the greatest gift of the day... a new baby brother. Here they are seeing him for the first time. Individual shots to follow!
