Just One For Now

Hello everyone! I had just a second to sneak a picture onto our blog of our new baby. Here he is: the anxiously awaited Zachary James Ruffner:
z4
He was born at 12:03 am on Saturday the 12th after 10 hours of labor at the hospital (+ 12 hours at home off and on starting at 1 am on Friday morning). Zac weighed in at a whopping 9 pounds, 2 ounces and was 21 inches long! Yowza!!!

Everything went really smoothly! I received an epidural for the last 3 hours of labor to help take the edge off of transitional labor and pushed for an hour to get this little linebacker out. Everyone is healthy and happy and quite exhausted! Please feel free to email or text Kevin and I. We have email access via our laptop and I will check occassionally as I am able to.

Rachelle said...

He's sooo absolutely adorable. I can't wait to meet this little guy! I'm glad you are all doing well. He's even bigger than we talked about when I was there for your shower. Whisper to him that is Auntie Rachelle loves him VERY much.

Zachary (or as JP calls him Zac Jim) has so much hair! It looks like it has a little curl in it! He is very cute and very chubby. I am so glad you are enjoying him.

Tera said...

Oh, and by the way, I think he looks a lot like you when you were a baby.

Hurray! Well done lady, he's so big. It's funny how different he is from Anslie. He's such a boy. I think he'll be her big little brother. Congrats!

Rachelle said...

I agree with Tera. From the moment I saw him I could see the Herle side (easy to do since I see it in the mirror every day, haha). He looks a lot like you as a baby.
