the days were accomplished that she should be delivered

Alma Michael Lewis; born 2:38am, Jan 13, 2011; 8 lb. 7 oz., 21 in.

Isa saying Hi for the first time a few minutes after he was born. OOPS! That's actually Jane right after he was born, and that's Robert behind me (I was leaning on his knees in the tub).

EJ (who was there the WHOLE time waiting patiently for him to come out) finally holding him.

Isa happy to be done with the all-nighter...

Our first holding our latest. I love brothers.

I'll post pics of all the kids in their big brother/big sister shirts later. You can barely see Angel's in the above pic (he is version 1.0.1998).
