FINALLY, Little Pip is Here!

Posted on Updated on



After about 36 hours of labor, including 4 hours of pushing, Pip was delivered via C-Section at 2:44 am today, December 17th!

I’m seriously falling asleep just typing this so you’ll get a better, more detailed update within a few days!

Oh, you want to know his name? Although his bloggy name will continue to be Pip we do want to share with you his real name:

Caleb Richard!

He weighed 7 pounds 8 ounces and has tons if hair! We don’t know how long he is as they haven’t done that yet.

Well that’s all I’ve got for right now. I need to sleep while Pip is!

p.s. Thanks so much for your prayers!

    Thank you for the update – so glad to know all is well and to see little Pip!

    I agree with Jenny though – sleep…sleep as much as you possible can in that crazy hospital where they will probably wake you up every couple of hours just for the fun of it!
