He's Here!


I have to say, I'm a pretty big fan of these kinds of blog posts... we are happy to say that our little boy has arrived!

Finnegan Walker Brogli
9lbs 11 oz 21 inches, 9:57 a.m.

We are so thankful for this sweet healthy blessing! Despite a very fast delivery, a bit of meconium when my water broke during delivery, and untreated Group B Strep (there was no time for antibiotics!) God brought this little man into the world in His perfect plan and timing. We are so excited for our family to grow and for Kenna to meet her little brother, which will hopefully happen later this afternoon.

We don't believe in "lucky numbers" but here is a funny story about nines for you... we left the house with some pretty severe contractions just after 9 a.m. arriving at Rex's front door at 9:40... Finn was born at 9:57 a.m. weighing well over 9 pounds. As you can imagine, there was no time for an epidural or any other pain relief... my first all-natural delivery!

We are loving Rex so far and can't wait to share more pictures. Thank you all for your prayers, and we are happy and healthy here just soaking in our new little addition!

You ROCK girl!!! I LOVE his name!! I want to know more about your delivery...ha! Were you contracting before? Did you just labor at home? Or did it all happen so fast & boom he was here! Oh and I was 9lbs 11oz when I was born - just a little FYI for ya. ;-) Have fun snuggling and listening to all those little squeaky baby noises! Congrats again!
