Hey everybody, just got back from the hospital with a beautiful baby boy! Eli Joseph joined us at 4:31 p.m. on December 29.

We helped things along with the induction, and all went well. Baby is healthy, perfect, nursing well. Mom is actually feeling really good! And best of all - Dad was able to be there and not miss anything. So we are completely happy with the way everything went, and at peace with our decision to induce.

He was 7 lbs. 14 oz. and 20 1/2 inches. Dark brown hair, and lots of it! It is so cute. He is so happy. The visit at the hospital was actually peaceful - with the exception of all the nurses coming in and out. He sleeps quite a bit and doesn't want to nurse every hour like ds1 did - thank goodness!

Big brother stayed at home with Grandma & Grandpa. This was a first for all of us - I've never been away from him that long! But he did really well and had a lot of fun it sounds like. He came to visit at the hospital both nights but he had a cough and didn't want to hold him until we got home tonight. Now he is all about Eli! A little bit ago I heard him tell dh "I really like Eli". How cute!

Best of luck to those of you who are still waiting... And I'll see you all over on "Life With a Babe"!

Happy New Year!
