Finn Abram Rife...

Finn, a few hours old.

Our first family picture ever!  About 10 minutes after he was born.




Sleepy husband...but he totally deserved that rest!  

Finn, one week old.























We are so blessed and happy to have Finn Abram Rife join our family!  He came at 4:15am on 11/21/11.  He weighed 8lbs. 1oz. and was 21.5 inches long.  I can't begin to tell you how amazing and beautiful the birth experience was.  I still can't believe that this little man is here, and all the things that it took to make him. God knows what He's doing.  Finn is perfect and we are so happy!

I was blessed to have a short labor...only 7 hours!  I was prepared for a longer labor, so Landon and I were thrilled when it happened quickly.  We were so happy when it happened because we were facing a possible induction.  Fortunately, God worked it out that I went into labor spontaneously, and we were able to have the unmedicated birth that we desired.  I'll post my ridiculously long birth story some other day.

Finn is doing so well, too.  He had his first Dr. appointment today, and he nailed it. :)  He's a champ at breastfeeding, and he's been really good at sleeping too, which I appreciate.  Having a baby is so wonderful!  It's been really hard at times, but it's been worth it all to see his little face every day and cover it with kisses.  I love him SO much.

Landon and I are truly blessed by Finn and we can't wait to watch him grow and change each day.
