i don't have pictures yet, but casen david blessed the world with his presence today around 12:20 p.m. he was 8 lbs. 2.5 ozs. and 20.5 inches long. he has BLACK hair, and he's just perfect. his mama and daddy are also doing great. i went to see crystal at around 11:15 this morning, and she was dilated to a 5. about 45 minutes later, the nurse came to check her and said she was a 10! i was completely amazed. for a woman who took four hours to get from a 5 to a 10 - and thought that was quick, considering a 15-hour labor - i was floored. but also totally excited to get to meet casen so quickly.
i'll update when i go back to see crystal later this afternoon.
praise the Lord for a healthy, beautiful baby!
