happy birthday to you

This morning Camille wished my Mom a happy birthday many many times.

This afternoon she wished her new baby brother a happy birthday, too!

I'd like to introduce to you the newest member of our family...

...Levi Thomas!

He was born at 12:28 this afternoon after what was (to me) a very fast labor! I had contractions beginning at 3:30 this morning that switched into high gear around 8:30. We got to the hospital at 9:30 where I was checked and declared to be 8-9 centemeters dilated already. After a quick (though it didn't seem very quick at the time) epidural and a couple hours to relax, Levi made his big entrance into the world!

He's a big boy, too, weighing in at...

...8 lbs. 8 oz., and measuring 22 inches long.

We knew instantly that he was a keeper!

Guess little Levi wanted to wish his Grandma a happy birthday too!

Camille came for a little visit with Aaron's parents after her nap. Though she seemed pretty unsure about what was going on, she was happy to see mommy and gave her baby brother "Tiny" quite a few kisses! I can't wait to see how much she is going to dote on him in the coming weeks (and years)!

So here we are now.

A family of four!
