Our New Son!!!!

Our new little son - Austin James - was born this evening at 6:08, and is our first little Texan, weighing in at 5 pounds, 8 ounces! Liss went into labor yesterday afternoon at 33 weeks and was shipped to a hospital in El Paso since she was pretty stable. Both her and the baby are doing great and she should be home (with pictures!) tomorrow night. We do not yet know how long Austin will have to stay in El Paso - about an hour away - but would appreciate all of your prayers.
