11:32 am. . . . . .

Finally, what you've all been waiting for:
Our Man Child!
Grant D Walker
June 18, 2008
11:32 a.m.
8 lb 2 oz
20 1/2 inches
lots of brown hair
lots of bruising on his face
pudgy nose
sweet disposition
Derrel's nose, lips, ears
Kim's lips, legs, fingers (pretty much the unimportant stuff)
He's pretty much a little Derrel just a lot smaller version!
Labor went perfectly and quickly. We were so pleased and enjoyed every minute of it, especially when Kim passed out while looking at the nurses putting in the IV. And when Derrel almost passed out when he got an epidural lecture and watched the whole thing. And when Derrel got to deliver the baby almost all by himself!!!!! It was a great day. Kim is actually in NO pain (knock on wood) and feels great. We feel so blessed and are so happy that Grant is here and healthy! More to come soon, stay tuned some more!

Knudson Family said...

Yeah! Congrats Kim and Derrel!

Abby said...

Wow--False hope, nothin'! He is beautiful, and I would be lying if I said I were not a tiny bit jealous :) You and Charlotte both left me in your dust, and I'm the one cheating (with the induction). I'm so happy everything went so your hubby can really focus on those boards, right??

Congratulations Walker Family!!! I'm so happy for you. He is really a handsome little guy already! I'm glad it went well for all involved. Make sure to post some pics of Lydia and Kate's reactions to him, I'm sure that will be some fun material to see and read. :)

What a handsome little man! I like the pic of his face near Derrel's GIGANTIC HAND! It show just how tiny he really is. Good job, you guys. :)
