At 10:35 pm on September 7, 2006, we welcomed Elijah John Peterson into the world!
I swear, that was the #1 most amazing and miraculous thing I have ever seen or may ever see in my life.
Amber was amazing. She had to push for 2 hours, which went by quickly for me but I'm sure felt like an eternity to her. She really was a champ.
Sweet Elijah is 7 lbs, 8 oz (big boy - especially to come out of Amber!) and has a full head of dark hair. He is very, very cute - and I don't just say that as a proud Auntie...he really is cute!
Pete also did great. Both of them were running on little sleep since Amber had been up since 5:00 am. Plus Pete had started his day not feeling well. I think he's feeling a whole lot better now. :)
I’m so happy I got to be a part of that experience. It was so great. I didn’t get home until midnight, though, and had to BE AT WORK at 5:30am. I’m going straight home for a nap today.
Check back later for pictures!
