Introducing. . .

Michael Jefferson *****
Born March 9, 2008
8:40 p.m.
4 lbs. 1 1/2 oz.
16 1/2 inches long
He's tiny and a little banged up after being wrestled from my pelvis via c-section after nearly three days of labor, but is doing so well. So far he has even been breathing all on his own. Birth story to come. (Perhaps when there are a few less drugs making my mind fuzzy!)

He is adorable. Congratulations and God bless you and your whole family. I'm the mom of Emily's friend Jen. Been following your progress and praying for you all along. Glad to know you both are doing well. Looking forward to your "story" and more pics.

Kelsey, Matt, Harper and Michael --
Congratulations to you all. Give yourselves a pat on the back (all of you, even the extended family) for being so strong through all of this. Can't wait to meet him and see you guys again.

Chris
P.S. Great name choice.

Oh! He's so tiny! And so sweet! I can't wait to hear the birth story, since it sounds like you were trying for a V-back afterall.

I can't wait to hear more about little Michael. He's certainly coming into the world with a bang...I expect so many more big things from him!

God I'm so glad he's okay. We've been thinking about you all this time. I'll share the news with hubby. I'm sure he'll ooh and ahh too! Cute name. Matches with Harper doesnt it?

Way to go mom. You did so well.

The whole thing gives me the goosebumps.
