Hey Jude......

Finally, after 9 days of waiting (im)patiently......Jude Lorenzon Ries was born early this morning at 6:51 a.m. It must have been all the walking at the zoo yesterday but then again, I think he was just ready to join the world!! He is perfectly healthy and beautiful weighing in at a whopping 9 lbs 4 oz and 21.5 inches long. Alisa is also healthy and doing wonderfully after a relatively short labor and delivery.

She was already dilated to a 6 by the time she went in to the hospital this morning around 3 a.m. I was able to go to the hospital with the kids this afternoon to kiss and love the little guy

and I can attest that he is just perfect and sweet as can be! He very much looks like Ian when he was born....it was fun to see the resemblance. Baby hunger pangs have finally subsided now that I am home and away from that newborn baby smell.

So, anyway, we are excited to have another baby in the family!! Congrats to Nathan and Alisa....another cute little boy to add to the brood :)
