Much anticipated arrival

I have so much to tell you all, but we've barely been home longer than I was in labor so we're still playing a bit of catchup. The short version is that after 49 hours of labor (23 at home and 26 in the hospital) we finally got to meet our beautiful baby boy on Thursday, October 22, 2009 at 6:14am. His name is Ian Jacob Stryker. He was 8lb 12 oz at birth and 22 inches long. He is absolutely perfect.

Ian Jacob

Everyone is healthy, happy and home. I'm not sure I've put him down for more than five minutes since we came home. I can't imagine life without him.

More soon!
