here are some pictures of our new little guy. his name is cody scott. he was 6lbs. 15 oz. and was 20 1/2 inches long. he has been really quiet from the start. only squawked a couple times his first seconds in the fresh air and has been quietly sleeping and looking around ever since. oh, we had him on the 26th at 3:35 pm. that's all the details i can think of for now. tessa can fill in the gaps later, i guess.
you can be praying for his health and for tessa's recovery. she bled for a number of hours after the delivery and is a little weak because of that. she was just shy of needing a blood transfusion and they have her on some iron to help bring her hemoglobin count back up without the transfusion. with all that to say, just remember to pray for her strength to come back quickly.
tessa's mom will be around to help out until she feels strong enough and will be around even after that, so we are thankful for the help.
if you have any questions just leave them in the comments section and we'll be checking often so we can answer them.
i'll also be putting up more pictures as the days roll on, so stay tuned.
