Our baby has arrived!!!

We are excited to introduce the newest member of our family... Lincoln Kimball! He arrived on November 13th at 3:08 AM after 18 hours of labor, and an unexpected c-section. It was quickly apparent to us why the labor failed to progress when Lincoln made his debut not only facing the wrong direction, but also weighing 9 pounds, 7 ounces and measuring 21 3/4 inches long. Although things didn't go as we'd pictured (do they ever with having kids?)...we feel very grateful for the wonderful care we've received from the physicians and nurses here at the hospital. Yup - we're still at the hospital, and it looks like we'll be going home on Saturday. Both mom and baby are doing well & we feel so blessed to have sweet little Lincoln in our family. Here are a few pictures from Lincoln's first couple of days, and there will be plenty more to follow!!
