Welcome to the world, Evan James J!!

Our dear friends Emily and Brian had their baby boy this week!!  We had been praying for Emily for the last several weeks -- she had had some complications during her third trimester, which led to her being induced at 39 weeks, on Sunday night.  From what we've heard so far, she was a superwoman during labor -- 7 hours of active labor, 2.5 hours (!!) of pushing, and no epidural (!!!).

But I'm sure she'd be the first to say that it was absolutely all worth it, for this gorgeous bundle of joy.  :)  Evan was born at 7:44am on April 26, at 9 lbs. 2 oz. and 21.5 inches.  And he's so beautiful!

Photos stolen from Emily's Facebook profile, which I've been faithfully stalking since Sunday night, as any good friend would do.  :)

Emily and Brian, congratulations on your precious little son!!  Many blessings on all three of you as you come home from the hospital and go through the adjustment period -- you're in for the best ride of your life.  :)  We love you!  And Joshua can't wait to meet his new little buddy!
