Our Newest Family Member

Join us in thanking God for the arrival of baby Logan Ray on Sunday morning, July 16th around 9 a.m. According to the midwives' measurements, he was 8 pounds 15 oz. and 22 3/4 inches long. (The next day, at the pediatrician's office, he weighed 8 pounds 5 oz. on a more accurate scale, and while he probably lost some weight since birth, probably not 10 oz.)

Thank you to all who kept us in your prayers! Thank you to those who commiserated with me in the comments section about the wait.

I will post more later when I have more energy. Please keep Logan in your prayers. He has been turning slightly blue around his mouth and in his legs when they are below the level of his heart. His heart rate and respirations are normal and he is alert and nursing well. He is getting some physiological jaundice. The pediatrician tested his blood pressure in his arms and legs and found it to be normal. He said that maybe the blueness is a "newborn positional thing", whatever that means. Logan has another appointment this week.
