Praise The Lord!!

Well...













We're proud to say...












IT'S A BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



We had a slow start on Monday, and didn't get to break my water until 3:00 pm. We stalled around at 4 to 5 centimeters until 10:00pm. The doctor was about to give up, but gave us one more hour. Ed and I prayed and prayed and when the doctor came back at 11:00, I had progressed to 8 centimeters!!! God is so good! We waited another little while, and I was 10 centimeters and ready to push at 1:00 am. I only had to push for 15 minutes and then our little boy was born at 1:16 am. He was AMAZING looking. Ed and I were beside ourselves excited and moved and we COULDN'T believe it was BOY!!!!

His name is Samuel Ryne Payne. He was born on August 22, at 1:16 am. He weighed 5 pounds, 13 ounces and he was 18 inches long. He has a small amount of blondish brown hair and blue eyes.

More pictures to follow as soon as we can catch him with his eyes open! :)

Welcome Samuel to the world! He is so cute. Can't wait to see him. We are praying for long night sleeps, good nursing and wonderful cuddle time.
