He's here!!

William Lang Webster was born on July 1st at 9:48pm. He weighed 6 lbs and 7 oz and is 19 1/4 inches long.

Labor was very long! They induced me at 6:30am, but did not break my water until 4:30pm, so we had a long day to sit and do nothing but have contractions and wait. However, once it got going, it got going a little too well. The epidural and I decided that we were not friends. I will spare the details, but it was not fun.

They corrected this by giving me some type of medication that made me very sick. I have never been that dizzy or nauseous in my life. It didn't help that I had been up for over 24 hours with no food or water either. We finally got him here and I didn't do so well post delivery either. I was still very sick from the medication and labor and I couldn't really hold him. We finally got cleaned up and in bed at 1:00 am- just in time for his night feeding. Between the many many doctors coming in through the night and having Will, we are pretty tired.

But the good news is that we all feel great today! Sleepy, but so happy. Bennett was here this morning and had a nasty spill on the floor, so she wasn't as happy as we would have liked, but she loves, "Baby!" She couldn't take her eyes off of him. She got a baby of her very own, but she preferred the real thing.

Here are a few pictures of our past 24 hours. Thank you so much for all of the prayers that you prayed for us yesterday. They were all felt and we cannot thank you enough.

Waiting on our baby brother

Welcome to the world, baby Will!

Meeting our baby for the first time. Exhausted, but thrilled.

Since he was born so late, Bennett had to wait until the next day to meet him. Here is her first glimpse of her little brother.

She loves him already

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous boy. And the rest of you look great, too! Give both of those babies a big kiss from Aunt Stacy.

And Sophie says: I think it's face is so cute. I love it. (She means "him.") And her advice to Bennett on being a big sister? Read books to him. And teach him how to walk.
