Our youngest son, Elijah Joseph Green was born this morning, April 19th 2011 at 8:06 am. He weighed six pounds, 12 ounces and was 19 inches long. He was born 6 days before his due date, because we had a required c-section. His due date was Easter.
.
The c-section went very smoothly, a much different experience from the emergency c-section we had with Joel. I have had a little anxiety on the pain medication but it is being managed now and we are all doing well. Elijah is a very sweet baby. He calms himself very easily and has been sleeping a lot. He looks just like his brothers. Here are lots of pictures from our morning (although we haven’t taken the time to take any real beauty shots of Elijah, so look out for those later today or tomorrow.

    He is a beautiful baby. Congratulations to both of you! I am glad it went well, and the pictures of all of your boys are precious. Great name BTW as I am partial to an Elijah. 🙂 I pray that Amy’s recovery from both surgeries goes smoothly.
