He's finally here!!!!

He was just born about 30 minutes ago. 7 lbs exactly 20 1/2 inches. After about 3 hours of pushing they did a c section. McKay sounds very happy but McKenna was still getting stitched up so I didn't get to talk to her. What a trooper she was. What a very rough 27 hours total I think it was. But he's here and McKay says he is healthy and so cute. I could hear him in the background and he sounds so strong and good. It didn't even sound like a newborn cry, but a hearty older cry.

What a relief.

More details later. I have not slept yet so I'm going to try to get a few hours before the twins arrive this morning.  :)

Woohoo!! I have been compulsively checking your blog for updates every 20 minutes or so since getting up with Rich a few hours ago.

I am so glad that he is here and that he is healthy. And of course he is adorable. I mean, with parents as good looking as McKay and McKenna, you can't go wrong.

I already miss McKay and McKenna. Hopefully it's not too too long till we can all get together again. (With our babies!!)

CONGRATS!! Sounds a little like my birthing experience and then they had to do a c section after all of the labor...the good thing about c sections is the baby comes out with a pretty face...perfectly round!

Congrats, Grandma!! Tell McKay to treat her like a queen still!! You raised him so I know he will!

Sorry she had to go through a c-section, but so happy that the baby is well and strong.

Congratulations to all of you!
