IT'S A BOY!!!!!!!!

IT'S A BOY, Oh, boy!

D.D.Olson was born at 10:18pm, 7 pounds 14 ounces, 21 inches long, and completely healthy!!!! I realized I haven't asked David and Julie yet if they are going to type his name online, so until I know for sure, I'll only put his initials and let you guess! Or call me and I'll be happy to tell you all about him!!!

He's beautiful, has ten fingers and ten toes, blue eyes, and possibly a shade of red hair?? He has a little cone head from her 17 HOURS of labor, but her c-section delivery went perfectly!

Here is the first picture I took of him, when he came off the elevator from OR with his dad and nurse, and ALL of us were standing there waiting, and I burst into tears!

Here is the nurse, and David like a good new father with the camera around his neck!

And my favorite picture of the day, with Julie grinning away at her new baby, totally in love. I took 10-15 pictures quickly in a row, and he had a different face in each one! He's already sucking his fingers!

CONGRATS! I've been alternating between your blog and Shannon's! She....well, I better not post any news before she does, but these cousins do share a birthday!

Henrik and Carrie said...

Awesome!!! Henrik and I are placing bets on the name! He thinks it's Darwin Duane so I think I'm going to win!

Praise the Lord for this miracle.

We're going to bed!

Well, I am so happy for you and all your family! Congratulations to you and your family!
