Introducing...



Meet the newest member of our family: Caleb Landon Renn! He was born at 10:30am this morning, weighed 7 pounds 8 ounces and measured 21 inches long. Everyone is doing fine. We arrived at the hospital at 6am but the process did not really start until about 7:30am. Everything went so fast that there was almost no epidural! They had told us he should be here by lunch but even the doctor thought things went really fast. He has ten fingers and ten toes and is eating like a champ. We are hoping to sleep at least a little tonight!

Big brother Austin was absolutely fascinated when he saw his brother for the first time. Dad picked him up from school and the entire class was excited to hear the baby was here. For about the first hour, he just wanted to hold the baby. He would hand him off and try to go for a walk but never made it very far because he needed to check on the baby. He did not want to go home tonight due to not wanting to leaving mommy and baby at the hospital.
Right now we hope to be going home on Sunday unless we hear otherwise. Sitting in one room is neither one of our favorite pasttimes. We will keep you up to date on the happenings. Time for a nap!
