Finn Dawson Frazier is here!

Well, we are still experiencing shell shock from his early arrival... I had just hit 37 weeks on Monday and he decided it was time for him to come. We haven't even totally unpacked from moving. We worried a lot because of all the precautions they were taking at the hospital to make sure he was handling the stress of labor fine. It's not fun to be hooked up to all sorts of monitors that seem to beep every 2 seconds. 17 hours later he was born today at around 3 pm. He weighed 4 lbs 3 oz and is doing great. We were very worried that his weight was so low, but all the tests they've done on him so far have proven that he is healthy. We are very grateful. On to the pictures!


They kept insisting that I use supplemental oxygen to make sure his heart rate was good. It wasn't so fun because the smell of the plastic made me sick and throw up a couple times.


Here's the little guy! Now the challenge of making sure he gains weight. We pray that he continues to do well.

CONGRATS!! When I saw the title, I inhaled so loud that Matt jumped over and said, "What?!" I didn't realize you were so close to your due date! He is so little. I'm glad he's doing so well! How did the rest of labor go?
