He was born at 1:35 PM, after induction and a brief labor (~4.5 hours total from start of meds to baby). He is 7 lb 1.5 oz and 21 inches tall.
He is named after my (Brad's) great-grandfather (my mother's dad's dad) Ivan, and my father Alan.
Teri is doing just fine. She did not use pain medications again, and I am so impressed. She is recovering very nicely.
I feel like I am the most blessed man on earth today. Although we are far from most of our families, we have felt their support and prayers with us. And we have so many people here in our new home in Oregon who love and care about us. A special thanks to the Blunk family for helping watch Ellie and Chris while we have been at the hospital.
I thank my heavenly father for all that I and my family have been given! Now on to the photos! (the only real reason you are reading this post)
