He was born on the evening of October 7 after four pushes.
He is a tiny guy weighing in at only 6 pounds 9 ounces.
Both Owen and Ryanna are super thrilled to have him home and want to hold and kiss on him all the time. Owen comforts Eli when he cries by chanting, "It's okay baby. It's okay." Ryanna is already planning the birth of the next baby which she assures me is a sister.
Eli was tongue tied at birth, but we had that cut yesterday and are happy to report his nursing has greatly improved.
He has a tiny cry that several nurses mentioned sounded like a recorded cry that you would hear from a doll.
He loves to sleep most of the day away and remind us how cute he is in the wee hours of the night.
All in all--we're all in love.
