A HUGE Blessing!

We are so excited to share that we have a baby boy! He was born this morning at 7:30 after a 2 hour labor. We were shocked to see that he weighed a whopping 10 lbs 15 oz! WOW! He was 21 1/2 inches long - definitely a record for our family!

The two proud parents; Sam and Melissa Sahlstrom

The feet! We are all amazed at how big he is!

Everyone is waking up, Erina was quite surprised to see her new baby brother!

Good Job Mom! We love you!
I was honored to help with the birth again this year. After helping with Erina's birth, I wouldn't have missed this one for anything! Mom went into labor around 5:30. It went so fast! The Midwife Diane Adamski actually made it this time! We will post more photos soon!

That's so cool that you got to help, Annika! I got to be at the birth of my little new sister, born 1 week ago, as well as at my last 2 siblings.
It was fun to meet you at the family bluegrass festival! Hope to see you again sometime!
