Welcome to the World!! (now with pictures & a name)

Baby boy arrived this morning at 6:25 a.m. He's 10 lb 13 oz, 23 inches long. Name & pictures forthcoming. Now I'm going to get some sleep.

(P.S. This is my 600th blog post. That's kind of cool!)

UPDATE!! He has a name now! His first name is Leif (after Leif Erikson) and we are still batting around some middle names.

Good heavens, Mindy--on so many levels. This is all so exciting. I thought about you throughout the night last night and it looks like prayers were answered in the good kind of way. I'm sending all my love to you and David and this new guy. I'm here if you need ANYTHING.

I was a Sunday baby too. It always seemed kind of special. I prayed for you that all would be well. I'm amazed and in awe of you. Go Mindy! ♥

I can't believe you had a baby and than had it together enough to announce it on your blog in the same day!!! You are amazing!!! Congratulations!!!!

Congratulations to all of you! I can't wait to see him. I think it's pretty funny that you used your endorphin-boost time to blog. That's dedication! ;o) Along with our ward fast, you guys have been in our prayers all weekend. I'm sure a partial answer to those prayers was a safe delivery of this big little guy. Kind of puts things in perspective, at least for me. Thanks for sharing the good news. We love you.

What a beautiful little (big) guy. I can't believe your baby was over 10 lbs. My biggest baby was 6lbs 3oz!

You look great and happy. Get some rest!
