Welcome to the world my sweet baby!

I am so very happy to announce the birth of our fifth sweet baby, Emmett Morgan! He was born last night. Well, early this morning actually, around 3:10am. Like we did with his big sister Claire, we chose to stay home and have him here instead of going to the hospital for his labor and delivery. Surprisingly he came a few days before his due date! That has never happened to us before, everyone else has shown up for the party late!

Important Facts:
Born: Sept. 13, 2011
Time 3:10am
Weight: 7lbs 10oz.
Length 19.75 inches
Head: 13.25inches
He is fat, with dimples in both cheeks, and he smells heavenly!!
He is our second post vasectomy reversal baby, and our second VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean-section) baby. And our second baby born in the USA. (Our first 3 boys were born while we lived in Guatemala.) Our fifth child, fourth boy! Have I mentioned lately how much I love my boys (and my girl <3)? 

Claire is smitten with "her baby" as we all are! She asks to "hold it, the baby" constantly. 

I might get back on here in a few days and post Emmett's birth story. But for now I am going to rest and bask in the sweetness of getting to know my newest little one!
