introducing....baby boy blakley...

...David Elijah Blakley!
Born Thursday, February 19, 2009
3:49 pm
8 pounds, 7 ounces; 20 inches
No more BBB...it's official...we chose a name! We'll be calling our sweet boy Elijah. And sweet, he is! I'm so in love, although everything just seems so unbelievable right now. I'll share more of his birth story at a later date...I just want to show him off now and praise God for a successful delivery and healthy boy! He's sleeping peacefully beside me (shh!) in his hospital bed right now as I catch up in the online world. I've maybe slept 4 hours in the last 36, but I can hardly stay asleep at this point, because of continually staring at him anyway! Elijah is doing wonderful! We'll probably be in the hospital another night because his mom has to do some healing, but I can hardly wait to introduce Jazz and Elijah when we all get to go home. Here are some picture from yesterday!
"Hello, world!...I'm here!""What have I gotten myself into?""Aw...my Daddy's hand""We just did a lot of work, Mommy!""My new family!""One of my first vistors!"...thanks, Kelly!"I'm just too precious"
"I'm just resting up for my new life!"
