Jonah, Jan 3 2007 Well, Jonah joined our family January 2nd, 2007, at 6:56 p.m. Look at all that blonde hair–I wonder where it came from…

He weighed in at 9 pounds 2 ounces, managing to beat big brother’s birth weight by 5 ounces. He was 20 and 3/4 inches long–nice and big and healthy.

Labor was long (12 hours), but great (of course, thank goodness for the epidural). Jonah came out in 3 pushes with no problems. I guess I do have to thank mom for these hips afterall.

It’s now Thursday evening and we’ve been home for a few hours. Jonah is nursing well and currently sleeping (which of course is what I should be doing too!) I just wanted to get up the initial pic and let all of our family and friends see our new little miracle.

Aunt Ivonne was in attedence playing a duel role–support for mom and memory keeper. She took about a gazillion photos. As soon as I hijack her camera, I’ll get more of the pics up. Thank you to everyone who has called and/or emailed us wishing us well. Life is good for the Johnsons–we have been blessed with an amazing family both near and far. We love you all!!! xoxoxoxoxo
