Our newest arrival

Our new little guy is finally here. His name is Austin J. Douglas Hult. Austin, because we liked it, J. after my dad and Austin's cousin, Riley, who passed away, and Douglas after Sara's Uncle Doug who passed away last month. Austin was born on what would have been Uncle Doug's 63rd birthday. He was born April 22, 2009 at 7:47 am. He weighed 7 lbs 2 oz and was 18.5 inches long. He is just a tiny one. Plus with the blonde peach fuzz on his head we wondered whether he was really our baby. All our other kids have had lots of dark hair. He is precious and we wouldn't change anything about him.

The proud daddy with his boys!

Andrew was very excited about Austin's arrival. He is also excited we used the name Austin because it is one of the names of the Backyardigans, his favorite cartoon!

Yea for Austin! I kept checking the blog every day looking for this announcement. Then, I don't check for a couple of days and I missed it!

I'm so happy for all of you. He's simply adorable and can already see that his cute little face looks like the other kids.

Hope you're doing well, Sara. Congrats!!

He is so cute! Congratulations! I've been meaning to look at your blog because I knew you were going to have it on the 22nd. I hope you are adjusting well to your fourth. Kevin is home this week and it's been wonderful. We'll see how next week goes.
