11:21pm - continued

We started pushing at 9:20pm. At 11:21pm I was able to announce to Erin and the rest of the personnel in the room, "It's a BOY!"

7 lbs 6.6oz.
20.5 inches

Baby is healthy. Mommy has a fourth degree tear from the inside and is waiting to go to the Operating Room.

With all the activity around here, this is all I'll post until tomorrow.

Congrats on your first son! Erin, I am so sorry and praying for you. I know this didn't all happen the way you wanted. I pray that you heal quickly from your tear and will be up on your feet in no time!

Congratulations, Erin and Joshua! I am so happy for you. That was a crazy journey, but I'm glad that the outcome is a happy baby. I can't wait to hear the name.

Erin said...

Yay! He's here! You must be pooped! The tear sounds like a doozy. I winced when I read that part, but Rachel's right, you'll get back to yourself before you know it. I can't wait to hear what his name is. Congratulations Mommy and Daddy!

Hi Erin! I wanted to say congrats to you! I'm visiting Katie this weekend and it looks like she accidentally posted her congrats to you this morning as me. I don't think she realized I was signed in to her computer!!! Anyway, welcome to team BLUE! :) Little boys are wonderful!!! Take care of yourself!
