Josiah David Lee was born yesterday at 10:33 pm, weighing 8 lbs. 2 oz., and was 21 3/4 inches long :). He is such a precious *tiny* little man, and he looks just like Andrew (and, consequently, Tori, Emmi, and Mommy :) ) :). We are so thankful for the blessing of this little miracle! Aren't his cheeks just the sweetest thing :)?...


  1. He's so cute!!!!! I'm surprised he didn't weight more being late and all. Tell your mama congrats. If there's anything we can do to assist let us know. Can't wait to meet him! I bet the boys are super excited to have another one on their team.

  2. Sweet baby boy! What a great name and pic:) Love y'all:) Finally Peter gets to be the *big* sibling:)

  3. Thank you, girls :). He is cute, sweet, precious, tiny, etc., etc. :). I might be biased, but I think he's pretty awesome :)...
    Cameron, I gave Mommy your message :). I can't wait for you to meet him, either :)! We are all excited it was a boy, just like you predicted ;).
    It would seem a little odd that he was so small, when he was as late as Emmi and Peter, who were both over nine pounds. But the emergency that caused the c-section was a placenta rupture, that appears to have happened silently several days before Mommy even went into labor. So he was actually most likely loosing weight, rather than gaining, for a few days. But even with that, Andrew was only three days earlier than Josiah, and only 2 oz. bigger, and Josiah is just about to break the nine pound mark. So, he is actually a big boy for what happened to him :). Especially since he didn't eat well for the first five days!
    Katie, I know :)... I love watching Peter with him, he *LOVES* him :)... I know I really need to post an update, but I also need to do a whole lots else... haha :). I will get to it as soon as possible!!! Love you too :)...
    Blessings to you both,
    Bri :)
