Luke Has Arrived!

Well, Luke Daniel has finally made his appearance, at 2:02pm today (December 2, 6 days after his due date). Lisa's contractions actually started early Tuesday morning, so we're grateful he is finally here. One major prayer request was that Lisa would have a successful VBAC, and the Lord was gracious to us!

Luke weighed in at a hefty 9lbs 2oz, and measures 20-3/4 inches long. Here is the very first picture taken of him, a few minutes after his birth.

The three of us after a long couple days.

Here is our first family picture! Mary was excited to see the baby- but she has absolutely no idea this baby is about to join her at home. Still, it was cute to see her kiss him (and poke his eye).

About an hour ago, Luke started sucking his thumb and hooking his nose with his index finger. Super cute.

I'm really proud of Lisa, who did such an amazing job through what turned out to be a very difficult couple days. We are both so thankful to the Lord, who has now blessed us with two wonderful, healthy children. The Lord is good.
