Hey Jude!

Jude decided he just could not wait until Monday for us to meet him... he was born yesterday at 5:23PM. He weighed 7lbs, 12oz and was 19 3/4 inches long. He is perfectly healthy and absolutely precious! We are so in love with our little man, and we are rejoicing at his safe arrival. His arrival is a story unto itself, and I will share it soon. I will just say the labor and delivery did not go exactly the way I expected it to, but it all ended well :)

Aubrey seems to really love him. She just giggled and giggled the first time she saw him. The next time she came to the hospital, Jude was in the nursery and the first words out of her mouth were, "Where's baby Jude?" So sweet! :) We let her hold him today, and she cried when we took him away. That should be interesting when we get home :/ I definitely think it might be a tough transition, but hopefully we will all adjust quickly!

We are still in the hospital, so I can't post pictures, sadly. (We don't have our camera cord.) We should be going home tomorrow evening or Monday, so we will post pictures ASAP! :) Thanks so much for your prayers! They are much appreciated!
