Welcome Ryan Michael

After months of anticipation the day has arrived that we welcomed Ryan Michael Farmer into this world. Labor started Saturday night and Ryan was born via c-section on September 17, 2006. 8 pounds 14 oz. 20 inches long. Labor lasted 12 hours from when my water broke at home to when they pulled the little guy out. I think this is the most intense thing I have ever done. I have felt so drained spiritually, physically, and emotionally. I have just now started to get back on my feet and it feels so good.

To see the way my husband, Tim, has supported me and loved on this baby has made me love him more then I ever thought possible. I sit back and look and Tim and Ryan and count myself the most blessed person on this earth. I am so excited for the next chapter in my life where I can watch my boy learn and see things for the first time. A chapter where I can watch my husband teach my son how to be a man in Christ. I can't wait for the family trips to Disneyland, and to picnic in the park.

I can't wait for Bobby and Rachel to have their baby and know what this feeling it like. I want our boys to grow up knowing how important family is and the bond they can have as cousins is special. I can't wait for the extended family trips where we go to a 2 bedroom condo we don't fit in and get on each others nerves and play cards all day and take the kids to the pool and know that although family can be frustrating no one will ever love you or your children they way they do.

God is GOOD!

Congratulations again! Tim has already been such an amazing father and you are and will be a pretty darn good mother yourself.

Don't forget about his amazing Uncle Bobby though! He'll keep him in line. ;)

Anyway, hopefully Caleb will be out before too long here.
