Thanks to my brilliant hubby I am able to post from my car as we are FLYING to New Mexico, haha...

Samuel Alan was born at 5:30 this morning weighing in at 6 pounds 1 oz!!  Melody and Sam are doing GREAT!  Mike called me as Mel was ready to push and put the phone on speaker and put it on her nightstand so I could kind of feel like I was there.  It was soo much better than missing it altogether.  Such an exciting moment.  I will post some pics as soon as I can.  Probably tomorrow or late tonight.  We are sooo hoping to get there before visiting hours are over tonight.  This car is not going nearly fast enough, haha....

Praise God and thank you all for your prayers for this sweet new baby!

The happiest days are the days when babies come!!
