He's Here At Last!

On Tuesday, September 2nd we welcomed a new addition to our family. Little Ryan Kelly Hall weighed in at 8 pounds 2 ounces, he was 19 inches long, and he was 2 weeks early! I wonder if he would have been bigger than his brother if we would have left him to cook for another 2 weeks. He is a beautiful baby boy and we love having him here with us.

Simon is loving having baby Ryan at home. He gives him kisses all day and loves it when he gets to hold him. He comes in every morning, gets his little stool, and climbs up by the bassinet to see if the baby is awake. He is going to be the best big brother!

As for me, I am recovering well. I am so greatful that the doctor induced labor early. The delivery went so much easier with a smaller baby. This is my third day home alone with the boys and I am learning to multi-task in everything that I do.

The most amazing part of this story is that when Ryan was born the doctor found 2 knots in his umbilical cord! The doctor and the nurses were are absolutely amazed that we had no complications in the pregnancy or delivery. They were even calling him a "miracle baby". We are so blessed in our family and times like this really help us to appreciate everything that we have been given.

We love you Ryan!
