Axel is Here!

Our son was born on 5/23/2013 at 3:11 am!
We named him Axel Silas.
He was 8 lbs 5 oz and 19.5 in long.
I will do a post about his birth sometime soon.  Until then, here are a few photos from his birth...

The below photo is Pearl "meeting" Axel for the first time.  She didn't wake up to see him since it was in the middle of the night.  She saw him for the first time during daytime hours.
The next photo is when our kids officially met one another later in the day.
All four of us are doing very well!

  9. Oh my goodness! You have a family of four now! An older sister, a little brother... a baby boy. Congratulations. Such beauty and all things wonderful. Axel & Pearl. I like that...
