He's Here!

Yesterday we got a phone call we were expecting but not quite so soon. Our little boy arrived in the world at 5:06 AM on June 3, 2012. He decided to come about a month early. He was 4 lbs 10 oz and 16 1/2 inches long. Pretty good for being early. The doctors transported him over to Primary Children right after his birth so they could treat him for Gastroschisis. The doctors were able to reintroduce the majority of intestines back into his abdomen today and he goes to surgery tomorrow afternoon to finish up and close the abdomen. We hurried to pack a suitcase and finish up some last minute church calling requirement and headed up to Salt Lake City. We didn't get to see the baby until today because of legal issues. We think he is the cutest baby in the world. We are naming him Colin Robert.
