He's here!


Benjamin Joel, Jr.
Born at home 12/28/2010 at 1:48am
22 1/4inches, 9lbs 5oz.

My soul doth magnify the Lord,  And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.  For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden...For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
(Luke 1:46-50)

More pictures and a birth story to come. For the next several days, though, I'm going to focus on  resting up enjoying my son!
