Officially a Family of Four

KELLAN JAMES WHITTAKER makes this family officially a family of four. Our sweet baby boy made his grand arrival on Wednesday, October 28, 2009 at 7:25 pm. It was quite an eventful start to the day but once we got checked in around 11 am then God blessed us with a reasonable smooth and quick labor for which I am eternally grateful for.

From the start he's all I'd prayed for! Kellan is certainly healthy - weighing in at 6 pounds, 14 ounces and 19 3/4" long and a great set of lungs! He is already such a sweet spirited little boy who has captured my heart and very hard to not sit and hold every second. He has (so far) been eating great which is a huge answer to prayer and will continue to pray that goes well. And his big sister seemed to take to him well. We'll know more about this part when we go home tomorrow but she came to meet him Wednesday night and did relatively well.

Kellan James, we are so excited you're here and very ready to take you home and love on you forever! You will always be in our heart as the best surprise God ever gave us!
