Kelli delivered this "big boy" at 3:30 p.m. today. For tonight, he is without a name as they are still pondering something that goes with "Luciano", his middle name for sure. I'm sure within the next day or so they will name this little darling.
He resisted for about 16 hours.....not sure that he wanted to make his debut. Thankfully, after a long night and day he arrived weighing 9 lbs. 1.6 oz. and was 22 inches long. He is really big and beautiful! There was a little drama involved in the process and one would have to call him a miracle. But I call all births miracles. He is doing fine.
We are thankful that this event turned out as well as it did. I'll leave the drama part for another post. Right now we are celebrating his birth!
Thank you all for your well wishes for Kelli. Your thoughts and prayers have meant so much to our family. You are true friends in every sense of the word.
