Levi is Here!

I'm just posting a short update now that I'm home; I'll write the whole birth story out later. Levi is here! He was born on Friday Aug 13, 2004, at 2:40 pm, after starting induction around 10 am. He weighed 7lb 14.5 oz, and is 19.5 inches long. He has a bit of hair, and it looks dark??? LOL A first for me, a baby with dark hair. His eyes look like they will also be turning dark. Have I actually gotten a baby who will have Chris' coloring? lol

We just got home Saturday night, I didn't feel like staying the extra day. The brothers are all very happy to see him. Troyer got to attend the birth, and his opinion was, " Wow, that was so gross! It was *so* gross it was cool!!!" LOL I think he got to see more than he planned on, lol.
I will write a longer story when I get the chance, I'm not up to 100% yet. :-)

Gretchen, Troyer, and baby Levi, just hours old
