He's Here!

Arriving at 8:39am on October 17, 2012

After 15 hours of labor, lots of prayers, Priesthood blessings, and loads of waiting, our sweet little man has FINALLY arrived!

Russell's grandfather passed away at the beginning of the month, and we were not able to attend the funeral. That was hard, but we were there in spirit and heart. Our precious little one was given Grandpa's first name for his middle name, and we know Grandpa would be very pleased.

There is so much I have experienced, so many lessons I've learned, that I'm not sure where to start. Right now I'm just processing it all! Sometime soon, I will record everything, but for today it is simply enough to say that he's here, he's wonderful, and we are all falling deeply in love with him.

Welcome, Davydd Aldie!!!


  1. Congratulations! What a sweet little boy. Looking forward to hearing about labor and delivery.

  2. I'm so happy for you and your family. He is such a handsome boy. I can't wait to hear your story.


  3. So happy for you. He is beautiful, and looks so alert and ready for action! We all prayed very hard for you!

  4. Congratulations!! I have been checking your site every day in hopes of hearing this news!

  5. Yay for babies; yay for boys! I, too had to wait longer than I ever had before (9 days "past due") for our bundle to come. He was born on the 14th, so we are close!
    Congratulations! He is beautiful!

  6. Congratulations Rachel!!! I am so happy for you =-)
