Introducing...


Austin James
Born December 19, 2009 (On his Mommy and Daddy's anniversary!)
5 pounds 8 ounces, 16 inches


Despite his unexpectedly early arrival, Austin is doing well and we are just thrilled to finally welcome our precious new son! My labor with him was nothing at all like any of my others, being particularly long and traumatic, but I marvel at the way God perfectly orchestrated the events surrounding his birth. Praise be to Him! What a perfect Christmas blessing!
