does today seem like a good day for a birthday?

Well Ryder thought so. He woke me @ 4:25 this morning telling me to get going. After 5 hours in the hospital, 3 pushes in 3 min, we welcomed the newest Chastain into the world.
Ryder Andrew was born at 12:17. Weighing in at 9 lbs and 6 onces and 22 inches long.
He is healthy and pink with long fingers and more cheeks then he knows what to do with.
Praise Jesus with us for our new son. What a blessing.

If you only knew Baby Ryder was waiting for his personalized nursery to be completed you may have finished it a few weeks ago :)
Praising Jesus for the opportunity for you to be a mommy again!
