He's here!

Baby Mendenhall has finally arrived. And, no!... we still haven't decided on a name, but we'll let you know soon! Mom and baby are doing well.

Baby Mendenhall
October 24, 2008

8:14am
10 lbs 4 oz
22" long






Tommy was still at school when he was born, but we'll post a few pictures of Tommy and the baby soon.

**Edited: Here is a picture of Tommy that mom took later in the evening. Tommy was so excited to meet his new little brother, but was a little sad that he didn't get to spend more time with him. The doctors wanted the little guy to rest.


I laughed when Maria said... "I can't believe he was so small."... and I had to remind her that a baby that is born 9 days early and weighs in at 10 pounds 4 ounces is NOT small!

*posted by Maria's sister, Becca.

Congratulations!! He's so cute! Seriously, I know you were worried he would look a little "ruff around the edges" but I think he looks wonderful! Tell your sister I love the pictures. She did a great job! My favorite is the one of Blake holding the baby. He's going to be an awesome brother.

AWWWWWW....He looks just like a stringham baby!!! Sad, but I am old enough to remember what you all looked like. SSSSOOOOOOO....glad it's over for you. Although Angie thinks that she should write a book about what no one warns you about....the 3 weeks after the baby comes. He is so darling and I really like his name. Wish I could hold him.
