Colby Is Here!
Colby William surprised us with his quick arrival on Monday, January 31 at 9:15 p.m. (I almost didn’t make it into the hospital in time for his arrival–just three hours of labor, and while I did get an epidural, it didn’t take effect before he was born so this was my first full “natural labor” experience–ouch!)! Colby was a big guy for being 10 days early—7 lbs, 6 ounces, and 19.5 inches long. He’s a unique little guy with slightly strawberry blond, a super-rare blood type (AB-, which all the medical staff marveled at), a heart-shaped face and the strongest little wiry arms and legs. You can already tell that he can’t wait to get on the floor and wrestle with his brothers. Carson (4) and Russell (2) already adore him. Jason and I are so happy and in love with this new little guy in our lives. And we feel absolutely outnumbered here. 🙂
