He's Here!

Caden Ford Caldwell arrived yesterday morning at 3:16. He weighed 7 lbs 4oz and is 20 inches. I spent the night at the hospital with K and Caden last night, trying to give her an extra hand. I got to spend a lot of time holding him, kissing him, and thanking God that He gave my sister and brother-in-law this gift.

Everything went very well and mother and son are perfect. He has a little bit of sandy brown hair and has a cleft in his chin!

I will be staying with them for a few days, hoping to cook meals and get some future meals put in the freezer. Our mom is here to help out, which is something I'll always cherish from my days of new motherhood! There is something so sweet and wonderful about helping the women you love the most transition into motherhood. Boy I needed help 8 years ago and I really hope to be a help to my sister.

The brother and his family will come down Saturday to meet Caden. I'll post pictures later.
