He's Finally Here!

The first of the two guys I've been waiting for months to see made his appearance at last today, June 6th, 2007. Chandler Thomas Brock came into the world at 6:04am weighing 11.3 pounds and measuring 22.5 inches.

Weston took Jenny to the hospital to be induced on the morning of the 5th. After 16 hours of what they're calling "serious labor" (it was all serious to the untrained eye!) it was decided that Chandler was just too big for Jenny and he needed to come out via cesarean section. And so he did.

After waiting all night long, and napping in various strange pieces of hospital furniture and random spots of carpet, we opted to wait some more so we could see the darling boy and his superhero parents on the day of his birth. Mommy and Baby (& Daddy!) are recovering perfectly after the day's excitement. And so is Grammy, Nana, Grandpa, Aunt Cassidy, Uncle Jarrod, Uncle Seth, and Uncle Darren! ; )

For those who've asked, here is their contact information. They'll probably be in the hospital for a few days. They'll be sleeping their time away in peace, but may be ready for visitors by Thursday afternoon or possibly Friday. Please call first!

Address to send flowers:
Providence St. Vincent
9205 SW Barnes Road

He is adorable! And what a chunk, I mean "hunk" already. Too precious. SO SO happy for Wes and Jenny and all of your family! Aunt Cassidy is an AUNT! Yay! (Tiffany was excited too....she was like, "Boys, you remember Mr. Weston, Aunt Cassidy's brother? Well, they had a big baby, bigger than Brighton!" :-) And ain't that true. He's caught up to her in size 2 1/2 weeks later!
That's so awesome. Hope all are doing well and that recovery and adjustment is going good.
Love and blessings!

Well put Abby, Aunt Cassidy is an Aunt.

We're happy for the safety and good health for Jenny and Chandler, and you know, Weston too. He's been through something amazing as well. Way to go all!!!
