In case you hadn't noticed...

Kacey lost 7 pounds 4 ounces on Saturday the 13th. Tell her you noticed next time you see her. Her Secret? A child birth experience which could almost have been described as pleasant. Don't tell her I said that; I need to play the "I can't even imagine how difficult it must have been "card.

The proof? Here is the "so new it is still gross" photo. Official stats are as follows.

NIELSEN, RHODE ALBERT

September 13, 2008 - Present

Weight: 7 pounds 4 ounces

Height: 19.5 inches (or maybe centimeters I'm not sure)

Eyes: Dark, appearing black and slightly alien like in photos. Similar to his sisters.

Hair: Present but receding.

Birth Marks: None.

Vocals: Can squeal like a pig

Hardware: Fully equiped. "strapped"

Kacey is in good conditions. She didn't even break a sweat. We were gaming on the chances that our kid would get too big if we waited too long. Under the direction of her doctor Kacey lied, and we went into the hospital shortly before noon on Saturday.












Water was spilled, highly effective medications were applied, and we waited in relatively comfortable terms untill approximately 6:08 p.m PST. Then, Kacey labored until 6:17 p.m. when she was presented with our son. I guess that makes her really good at this.
Scarlet was not an initial fan of the whole thing. She spent Saturday and Sunday morning in the home of our good friends the Warrens. When they brought her back Sunday afternoon, she was rather...confused. We had spent nine months teacher her that "baby brother" meant mommy's belly was getting huge, and now "what's this thing?" This photo was taken seconds after introducing her to Rhode.

She did warm up to him quickly though.
Things changed after we talked her into giving him a kiss.


This child was very much wanted in our family, and I feel blessed that Kacey and Rhode came through in such great conditions. We thank our Heavenly Father for this gift.

Now let's all pray together that I don't mess him up.
