Introducing Rowan Blaine Watkins

Yes, he is here!

Rowan Blaine Watkins (I'll write more on the name soon)
Born at 9:33 am, October 5, 2009
8lbs 13.5 ounces - 21 1/2 inches

He is very precious and healthy and we are very grateful. Big brother has given him a warm welcome and has been quite sweet with little brother Rowan.
Everything went very smoothly and we are all well, though tired. We had a water birth and were able to go home 6 hours after birth (the hospital minimum) - so we are comfortably at home with two wonderful little sleeping boys! I'll write more on labor and birth soon, but while Rowan is sleeping I must go to sleep as I've been up for the past 20 hours - 8 of which I was in labor :o)

We'll post more pictures tomorrow and send out a mass email... but for now a very sleepy family of four says good night.

Congratulations on such a sweet blessing. I also have two little boys now, and my youngest is Jonah! Kristy sent me the link to your blog (which I believe she just discovered). You can visit mine (it's new) if you have a chance at Enjoy your new little guy! ~Erica (Kristy Dodd's sister)
