The Stork came

Mr Renn here: As you might have guessed from previous posts Em is in the hospital at this very moment, exhausted, sore, and very happy. Baby Graham Arthur was born at about 2 o'clock p.m. after a mere 6 hours of labor, and 5 days early. Both mom and baby are doing well. Sir O was well taken care of by our wonderful neighbors and had the chance to come by and say hello to his new brother. I had a wonderful time talking analgesia, with the anesthesiologist (and was so proud of myself for knowing all of the drugs they were administering), and talking vicryl sutures as the doctor stitched my wife up. I am sure Em will be posting when she returns. Thanks for all your love and prayers.

Just a few minutes old

Congratulations!! I love the names you guys have picked for your boys. Oliver seems like such a fun little boy. Best wishes as you guys figure out life with 2 kids!! (It's lots of fun!! Especially when they get older).

Congrats!!! I love all the dark hair. I loved hearing him cry in that little video. I must say that is the most precious sound of a new born. I miss it. So enjoy! It goes so fast. By the way I love the name. It looks like it fits him. AS for Oliver he looks like he loves him! So fun. Thats how Trey bear was, and it makes it so much easier that way. I love how big he is smiling in that 2nd picture. What a cute little family you are. I hope all is well with Emily.

Welcome, little Graham. He looks darling- so much like Sir O!

Mr Renn, I'm sure Em was delighted with your chit chat while her, ehem, parts were being sutured!

Ah, parenthood. So divine.

Congratulations to you all!

Emily--
You look WAY too good for just having had a baby!!! Renn and Oliver look so proud!!! Congrats to all of you!
Don't rush the next few weeks. Take your time with Graham, and rock, rock, rock! I feel like I am just coming out of my "daze" of not getting enough sleep, and realizing John is nearly 6 months old! He seems huge! Enjoy the newborn stage. It goes by way to fast.
Love, Holly

What a CUTIE! Congratulations!
You look amazing, you don't even look like you were in labor for 6 hours. It looks like Sir O has taken to little Graham right away.
Good luck with everything, I hope you recover quickly.

Congrats!! He's adorable! The Mil opinion so far is that he looks like Mr. Renn, but we'll see :) Look Em, you've already got this double-duty thing down: taking care of the wrapping paper while holding the baby. You're going to be juuuuuuust fine :)
