I must say that I am not quite the novelist that my wife is which is why I chose to become an accountant, and I want to keep this post short to spend as much time as possible with our new baby boy. But I wanted to share the much anticipated great news with our friends and family.
Elijah (Eli) Michael Stephens was born today September 14th, 2011 at 5:09pm. He weigh 8 lbs 7.1 ounces and was 20 inches long. Ali is doing great, but recovering from over two and a half hours of pushing, she was awesome!!! I must say I can't think of any other time that I have been more proud of my wife than today. She was so strong, and pushed and pushed like the little engine that could. I can say without a doubt that today is the best day of my life. The joy and emotion experienced today was amazing. He came out with quite a bit of hair, and we are thinking light brown at the moment but it is still early for those hoping for red.
Again I want to keep this short, but thank you all for your prayers and support throughout this entire journey, and below are some of our favorite pics taken today.
