He's Here!

After a ridiculously fast labor and delivery (which I will post about later), we welcomed the newest member of our family:

Joshua Todd Maxwell
Born October 25th at 1:48 AM
5 lb, 2 oz and 18 1/2 inches long



Apparently we are a "one size fits all" family with both boys hitting the exact same weight. Josh is over an inch shorter than his big brother is, so not as scary skinny, but still a tiny little guy. We are infinitely more relaxed this time and enjoying the wonder of new life. We are having a quiet, peaceful day at St Charles and expect to be home tomorrow.

Alissa- So glad little Joshua is healthy and looks quite content! Glad labor was fast, hopefully mine will be as well! Alright so you beat me to baby time... hopefully this labor thing will rub off on me! I have had 5 friends ahve babies in the last three weeks and am ready for a turn.
