Baby Elijah Pictures!!

Finally, what we've all been waiting for! It is a Huge honor to be the first to put Elijah's face on this blog. Here he is!

Proud mom and a her precious little bundle

Is he absolutely ADORABLE, or what?? Look at all that hair!

What a priceless trophy for all the hard work!

I visited with Wendi and her mom for 15 or 20 minutes and got to hear the whole story... wow, has she had a rough time of it! I will leave all of the details for her or JB to share with you later, I'll just say, it's a miracle! I am incredibly proud of you, Wendi.

It seems the little guy came out pretty hungry and breastfeeding is going well. I know this is a huge relief to Wendi.

Pray that they all have a good and somewhat restful first night together!

Oh, Lord, he's SO cute! There is something really cute about bigger babies. Mine were wee ones and a little, ehem, alien-looking.

Congratulations!
