The 4th Baby Elenbaas

Introducing Wesley Randall Elenbaas!  Born 2:14 pm on 5/2/13. 7 lbs, 2 oz. 19.5" long.

God is Good!  Erin is amazing! We were blessed with a very good delivery and I was once again so amazed and proud of Erin's strength and love to bring a new life into the world.

We actually got some sleep Wednesday night and I went in to work at 8:00 Thursday morning.  But by 8:30 Erin's contractions were painful.  We dropped off Evelyn, William, and Jack and were at the hospital by 9:30.

Labor progressed reasonably fast and Wesley was born at 2:14. Unlike the other kids, we weren't set on a name prior to delivery.  So shortly after birth we discussed our top 6 choices and settled on Wesley.  Neither of us felt strongly on gender, but both of us felt genuinely surprised with a boy.

Our first visitors were Papa, Nana, Evelyn, William and Jack.
  • Evelyn wanted a sister, but nicely made a sign that said "Dear Mama, I like the baby even if it is a boy."  And she did like her new brother.
  • William kept calling Wesley "wipes"
  • Jack seemed afraid and rarely got within 3 feet of his new baby brother

Our new family of 6!
