Meet Ira



On Sunday, February 22 around 5:40 PM we welcomed Ira Stephen into the world. He weighed in at 8 lbs 1 oz. He is healthy and we feel very thankful. 


Oh and for a little birth story teaser, he was born 24 minutes after we arrived at the hospital. :)

So I'll be the first to comment because - YAY - I'm awake in a different time zone. Praise the Lord for this beautiful little boy! I for one am very curious about his "sudden" debut.

And I'm the second...your commenting representative from the continent of Africa. At least if your sisters can't be there to meet sweet Ira yet, we can be the first to comment. Praising God for the beautiful gift of life!
