He's Here!

Sometimes, when the phone rings in the middle of the night, it isn't bad news.  Or even a wrong number.  Sometimes it is wonderful news!

At 3:15 we learned that one very wonderful and very large Elijah Brian was born, via Cesarean style arrival, this morning at 12:31.  Too big to come out unassisted, this most welcome light-brown-haired individual weighed 9 pounds, 2 ounces and is 21-1/4 inches long.

The parents are ecstatic and exhausted after a day that began at 5:30 in the morning.

He is reported to have an exceedingly loud voice.  We aren't surprised. Not a bit.

Welcome, Elijah Brian! Yet another strong name for the newest member of the Stevens clan. Congratulations, accompanied by whoops of joy!. That's an rather large baby to be deliverered by such a wee lady -- EB may be bigger than his momma by the time he's 10.

I am just picturing you, HUGE grin on your face, doing a happy dance by the dawn's early light. So SO happy for you!!!

Elijah = the Lord is my god.
